WHAT IS THE MOTHERS’ UNION?
It is a registered Charity.
It is a worldwide society.
It works within the church.
It is especially concerned with marriage and Christian family life.
It was started by Mary Sumner who was a busy mother of a family and daily help to her husband The Bishop of Winchester in his Parochial Duties. She wished to share with her sisters in every town and village the lessons her own first baby taught her of the need for religious character training, based on love and very high Christian ideals.
She invited two of three friends to tea in her drawing room in a Hampshire village and so in 1876 in Winchester, England, The Mothers’ Union was started. It was granted the Royal charter in 1926. Its first overseas branch was in New Zealand in 1887. Today there are Mothers’ Union branches in 83 countries in the world.
