St Mary’s Mothers Union meets on the second Thursday in the month in the parish rooms at 2pm. An annual programme is printed for members. It consists of a variety of speakers, services of meditation in advent and holy week at the village church at Berden, an Ascension Day festival service, a Christmas party and a summer garden party, and a local summer outing amongst others.
The purpose of the Mothers Union is to support all that strengthens Marriage and Christian family life and to help those whose family life has met with adversity.
Membership is open to women and men who have been baptised and follow the Christian faith and we welcome members from other denominations who support our aims. Visitors are welcome to attend meetings to find out more about the purpose of the Mothers Union before making a decision to join.
The Mothers Union is a worldwide organisation with 4 million members in 84 countries across the world. We support overseas members by using the wave of prayer calendar daily and at our monthly prayer group.
A quote from our Mothers Union prayer sums up our membership ‘May we be united in prayer and worship and in love and service reach out as your hands across the world.’
