    Mothers’ Union Worcester Diocese

    covers

    Worcestershire and the County borough of Dudley

     

    Through our work and prayer with families, children and people of all ages Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of Worcester is making an impact.

    Our members work practically with projects across the diocese both through their local church but also locally according to need.

    We seek to work practically to educate and empower women and families by:

      

    • assist NHS nurses in supporting teenage mothers

    • Help schools with ‘Open the Book’

    • Organise parent support groups

    • Organising ‘Away from it all holidays’

    • Assist in the canteen of our prisons making and serving refreshments and conversing with the visitors; providing gifts throughout the year

    • Support refugees to settle into school and community

    • Support and assist our priests with baptism and preparing couples for marriage

    • Attend wedding fairs

    • Assist in foodbanks; centres for the homeless and isolated and support the elderly to remain in their own homes.

    • We continue to support our local Refuges who offer shelter to victims of domestic violence by providing household essentials, toiletries and Christmas gift boxes.
