Mother's Union

 

 

 

 

St Peter’s Mothers’ Union is part of the world-wide Mothers’ Union with 4 million members. It is growing rapidly in developing countries and there it operates among the most marginalized societies and supports families in practical ways while encouraging Christian family life.

It makes a huge difference because trained local people who know what is needed develop small-scale enterprises, show how to improve agriculture and run literacy classes and parenting courses.

In this country members support prisoners and women’s refuges, run family contact centres and organise holidays for families who would never otherwise have one.

Here in Hale we raise money for the work overseas and in Cheshire. We run Excursions Unlimited and enjoy our monthly meetings, sometimes with a Christian theme, sometimes not. And regional events give a sense of united purpose.

We need your support for our fund-raising efforts. We need your interest, your prayers and we need help with transport – many members no longer drive.
