The present diocese covers most of Greater London north of the River Thames and the City of London
Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of London has been transforming lives for 125 years and we will continue to do so for many years to come. The present diocese covers 177 square miles and 17 London boroughs, covering most of Greater London north of the River Thames and west of the River Lea. This area covers nearly all of the historic county of Middlesex. It includes the City of London in which lies its cathedral, St Paul's, and also encompasses Spelthorne which was formerly in Middlesex but is now part of Surrey.
You don’t have to be a mother to join or even female. We are open to everyone. Our members are single, married, divorced, parents, grandparents, or young adults just beginning to express their social conscience. You just have to be committed to supporting family life. Here in the Diocese of London we do this through prayer and practical action as part of Mothers’ Union worldwide. Prayer is very important to our organisation and is at the heart of all we do.
We run AFIA holidays every year for families in need
As part of AFIA we have a mobile farm that can go to children’s nurseries
'3 Cs' (Coffee, Cake and Chat) which happens every week, when our members go to Great Ormond Street Hospital and support the families there
We donate to the Marylebone project – a large women’s hostel
We have also donated to the Furnish Project (part of the Shepherds Bush Housing Group)
We do extensive work in prisons such as knitting for prisoners babies at Holloway
