Mothers' Union Diocese of Hereford

The Diocese of Hereford covers Herefordshire, southern Shropshire and a few parishes within Worcestershire, Powys and Monmouthshire


We are one of the oldest dioceses in the country and Mothers’ Union has been active for a long time, helping support our local communities.

We are prayerful, and practical – but also pragmatic. We are few in number, and the simple reality is we can’t undertake big projects on our own. We don’t have the resources for that BUT we can help, and work in partnership with others who are working in their local communities on initiatives that accord with our aims. 

We encourage our members to take part in many activities, below are just some of them.

Our Work:

  • Volunteering at parent and toddler groups
  • Volunteering at the local Contact Centre, so children can see their parents in the midst of family breakdowns
  • Helping distribute meals for Meals on Wheels
  • Assisting with community transport schemes, and sharing transport – offering lifts
  • Raising awareness of existing support, and advice networks
  • Volunteering for community libraries and museums
  • Visiting people in residential care homes, hospitals and hospices
  • Befriending young families, especially new parents who may be feeling isolated
  • Working with “knit and knatter” and craft groups to make activity quilts and twiddle muffs
  • Collecting household goods for our Crisis Intervention store
  • Befriending refugees and migrant workers, for example, inviting them to church social events
  • Supporting our foodbanks with supplies and volunteers
  • Supporting initiatives in churches and communities – such as Messy Church
  • Supporting the bereaved and grieving

You can find details about all our branches on our website, otherwise contact our diocesan office if you wish to become involved.
