Be part of Mothers' Union

Mothers' Union unites Christians of all ages across the world. Through praying, campaigning and volunteering, members strengthen marriage and family life and bring about positive changes in their communities.

Whether you are looking for support, fellowship, or simply a place to meet like-minded individuals, Mothers' Union is the place for you. Membership is open to anyone who has been baptised and who will support our aims and objectives. You don't have to be a mother you just have to believe in the importance of strengthening family life within society.

There are membership options to suit every lifestyle, so we are confident you will find it easy to be part of Mothers' Union.

Local membership

Local membership offers you a chance to engage with like-minded people, reach out to the community where you live, have fun and share new experiences. Local groups meet regularly to pray together, support each other and get involved with local, national and international social outreach and campaigns. If there is not a Mothers’ Union group in your church why not find out about how they work and how you can set up a group yourself.

For those who cannot attend local meetings, area membership, known as diocesan membership, enables you to remain in touch and become involved in supporting families in the local area without having to commit to regular meetings. The costs of local and diocesan membership will vary according to the diocese in which you live.

For more information fill in the local membership enquiry form. If you would like to join as a local member from outside the UK & Ireland please contact us or you can join as a central member.

Central membership

Want a less hands-on way to support and join? Central membership is a great option for those who feel they do not have a lot of time to commit to regular, local meetings but would still like to get involved in Mothers’ Union by supporting the centrally funded work, praying and taking part in campaigns. The support of central members is vital in enabling Mothers’ Union to continue building lives, families and communities around the world.

Membership costs £30 a year if you live in the UK and £35 a year if you live outside the UK.

Every member receives the Mothers’ Union prayer and information magazine Families Worldwide to help keep you updated with what Mothers’ Union members are doing around the world and to help you pray effectively for them. In some dioceses membership will also include subscription to Families First magazine. Central members automatically receive Families First magazine six times a year and a copy of the charity’s Annual Review.

Join us today – we look forward to welcoming you!
