In over 80 countries of the world, more than 4 million Mother’s Union members do all they can – through volunteering, giving and prayer – to support families, to promote marriage and family life, and to reach out within their communities to people who are isolated, in trouble or in need of help.
Our branch at St.Peter’s Church has nearly 70 members covering a wide age range. Many of our members are involved in different projects in the community.
Some of the things we support and do:
Travelling Nativity Sets
Creative Crafts for Christmas
Fundraising for Wau (South Sudan)
Annual “Make a Mother’s Day” project

MU General Meeting 19th September 2019
Visit of Rosie Stiven, MU Diocesan President
On the afternoon of Tuesday 9th July about 50 members from across North Bournemouth and Poole deanery enjoyed a short time of worship led by Diana Newman. Rosie gave a fascinating talk about our worldwide project MULOA (Mothers’Union Listening, Observing, Acting) and the recently introduced Clewer Initiative (a drive to uncover and combat modern slavery). We were captivated and inspired by Rosie’s words which can be found by clicking here.
LADIES FASHION SHOW
An exciting evening of fashion and fun held on 7th May 2019.
Ticket holders were greeted with wine, juice and nibbles preceding a fun evening with much laughter and cheers for our volunteer models who swirled with panache down the aisle – the catwalk – for the occasion. The lovely clothes modelled were from favourite high street stores and sold at reduced prices, sometimes 50% of the asking price. After the show everyone browsed through the rails of clothes at their leisure and fitting rooms were provided in various areas of the Church; the prices encouraged much spending.
We are thrilled to report that £450 was raised for Mothers’ Union in WAU, South Sudan and £450 for St. Peter’s Church. A success financially as well as an enjoyable occasion; THANK YOU to all who supported and helped in so many ways. We couldn’t have done it without you!
