The Mothers Union is an international Christian charity which supports families worldwide. Over the years there has been a strong membership in the Malpas branch, many members have given long years of service and support in working steadily to spread the work of the M U in prayer, fellowship, and fundraising.
Traditionally the Mothers union has had its membership mainly around mothers, however, it is a little known fact that all are welcome to join. There are over 4 million members around the world in 80 countries who care deeply about children’s needs, family issues and individual communities who suffer abuse, hunger lack of clean water and preventable illnesses. The Mothers union has been successful in alleviating such problems through fund raising and prayer.
Working alongside some of the most neglected, marginalized people in the world, refugees, asylum seekers, also campaign against the sexualisation of children and challenge legislation that neglects the vulnerable. We have programs to meet the needs of families and people at all levels in our communities in this country with parenting skills, health education and prison work to name but a few.
Our aim “Helping those in adversity”
Why not come along to one of our meetings, we usually meet on the first Tuesday of each month at 2 pm – you will be made most welcome.

Message from Ann Welby
Hope you have all received copies of the Mothers’ Union Matters summer edition magazine .
Please note the knitted blankets for refugee children are being collected in October ready for sending to Diocesan Council on the 14th November.
Because of the current situation there will be no further meetings until after Christmas, then hopefully we will start up again in the new year with the AGM on Tuesday 2nd February 2021. Further updates will appear in the October issue.
