Mothers’ Union

We are a group of Mothers’ Union members in Thatcham who meet together most months. We are members primarily to support the work of MU, a worldwide fellowship of Christians committed to caring for families. We meet to share friendship, to pray together and to learn about MU activities and ways in which we can care for others. Our meetings take place on a Wednesday  afternoon (usually the fourth Wednesday of the month) and three times a year we meet in the evening.

Meetings are open for anyone, men as well as women. Membership is open to anyone baptised. The monthly meetings are held in the meeting room unless otherwise stated.

Members also help in different ways in the community – at mother and toddler clubs, supporting those who are baptised at St Mary’s, fundraising for MU work worldwide, parenting courses; and in many personal or individual ways.
