You can become a member of this worldwide organisation to support family life. Membership is open to anyone, male or female, single or married. The only requirement is that you have been baptised as a Christian and support the aims and objectives of Mothers’ Union.


We all have different demands on our time, so Mothers’ Union offers alternative types of membership. Whichever you choose, you will be able to share in the work of Mothers’ Union.




Many people join a branch attached to a local Parish Church after meeting a member of the branch or through the parish priest. Branches meet regularly to pray and support members and to engage in a wide range of activities.



In every Church of England Diocese there are Diocesan Members who may not be able to attend branch meetings. Diocesan Members receive updates about local Mothers’ Union work and support the wider community at diocesan level.


As part of membership subscription, currently £15.00, members receive three copies of Families Worldwide’ a 68 page publication featuring the work of Mothers’ Union around the world and a Prayer Diary.


Mothers’ Union also publishes a bi-monthly top quality glossy magazine ‘Families First’
