2020 Theme: Building hope and confidence

The outcomes of our global listening process MULOA (Mothers’ Union Listens, Observes and Acts) have enabled Worldwide Council to draw together key emerging elements, and thus shape the way forward for us as a movement.“Building hope and confidence” has been placed at the heart of our call to support individuals and families to transform their lives. As we build our hope and confidence in God we will be inspired and equipped to build hope and confidence in others, in both local and global context. So our themed resources for 2020 aim to help us live out our faith to build hope and confidence in ourselves as well as those we support, and to nurture our faith as we continue to walk forward in step with God
