Mothers' Union

Founded in 1876 by Mary Sumner, The Mothers’ Union exists to encourage, strengthen and support marriage and family life.  It reaches out to others across the world.

The Wetherby Branch of The Mothers’ Union was formed in 1939 by Maysie Milnes.  It has a strong membership of 20-30 members and is recruiting.

Led by Shirley Fawcett it meets monthly on the third Wednesday of the month at 9.45am for a service followed by coffee and cake. 

The meeting provides a chance for keeping in touch with the worldwide Mothers’ Union movement such as the campaign against gender-based violence.  The MU magazine contains prayers for every day and every month.  There is a Garden Party and other events during the year.   

Membership is £30 per annum and is open to all genders.

The Mothers’ Union (MU) is a cherished part of our church community.  It provides a warm and supportive environment.  We invite you to join us as we continue Mary Sumner’s vision and make a positive impact in our community.


DID YOU KNOW…….there is a small cluster of Diocesan Members who occasionally meet together informally.

The meetings have, so far, taken place in the Wetherby area, due to the number of Diocesan members who live there and have included a relaxed evening at a local gastro pub ahead of the busy Christmas period, where we shared a chat over a delicious meal.

We extend a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us.
