For its 4 million members Mothers’ Union provides a network through which they can serve Christ in their own community - through prayer, financial support and actively working at the grassroots level in programmes that meet loyal needs. We lobby local and national governments on issues affecting family life and campaign to challenge legislation that neglects the vulnerable and marginalised. We are also represented at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.
In the Bristol Diocese some members are involved in prison visiting, supporting parents and children at the Children’s’ Hospital, supporting the Night Shelter, providing holidays for families in adversity, helping asylum seekers and refugees, and working with teenage parents in Hartcliffe and Withywood. We also provide ‘Welcomers’ for visitors to Bristol Cathedral.

Some of our most important work is done overseas. Our action and outreach work helps families and communities to work together to address hardship and discrimination. Through our relief fund immediate aid is sent to disaster areas where people are suffering from the after-effects of devastating earthquakes, severe flooding and prolonged droughts.
