Mothers’ Union At St Chad

What or who is the Mothers’ Union?

The Mothers’ Union is a Christian organisation with more than 3.6 million members in 81 countries worldwide. The backbone of the MU is its worldwide network of volunteers. Whatever their back ground they are committed to supporting marriage and family life. They give their time generously to help others, whether by running local projects, supporting international campaigns or fundraising. Here at St Chad’s our group supports the Toddler Group and coffee on a Thursday morning after the 10.30 service.

The Mothers’ Union also employs over 300 paid workers around the world. These are women drawn from the local area, so they speak the local languages, understand the culture and customs. They will also have firsthand experience of the problems their neighbours face. MU workers provide vital leadership for efforts in the community.

Locally the MU support the visitors centre at Leeds Prison, we also knit balaclavas for Mission to Seafarers and bonnets and jackets for the premature babies units at LGI and St James’. Every week a branch of MU from Ripon and Leeds say midday prayers at Ripon Cathedral on a Thursday. We also provide an east coast holiday home for deserving or needy families. One campaign the MU has been involved in is ‘Bye-buy childhood’. This aims to empower families to challenge the commercialisation and sexualisation of childhood through positive action.

Thought for the Month

“Lord God of surprises, we thank you that you know each one of us

and you call us to humble obedience to your will.

Give us that readiness to hear, accept and follow

your purposes for our lives. Amen”
