What we stand for
The Mothers’ Union is a Christian mission organisation with more than 3 million members in over 70 countries. Although coming from many different backgrounds, we are united by our shared belief in the importance of family values. We have strong personal links between members around the world, and we unite in prayer, worship and fellowship. Midday prayers are said every day for our members in dioceses across the globe.
To promote the well-being of families worldwide. We achieve this by:
- developing prayer and spiritual growth in families
- studying and reflecting on family life and marriage and its place in society
- resourcing our members for practical action to improve conditions for families, nationally and in the communities in which they live.
What we do
Our members support family life where there is a need within their own communities. We are involved in a great diversity of activities from worldwide literacy development and providing aid in disaster areas overseas, to parenting projects, working in prisons, helping to provide holidays for people whose family life has met with adversity and many other projects in the UK.

In North Holmwood
We have a small branch which meets informally for a light lunch on the first Monday of the month at 12.30 pm. This will sometimes be followed by a speaker or activity. We also run occasional outings.
In addition, we attend Mothers’ Union Diocesan services at Guildford Cathedral and occasional talks, services and prayer meetings for members within the Dorking Deanery.
