Welcome to the Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of Monmouth. As Mothers’ Union we work together to further God’s work as we seek to provide love and support to all families no matter their shape or size.


We work across the whole of Monmouthshire, Newport and the South Wales valleys to provide the support needed to bring the love of God to all. We work both at branch and diocesan level through the activities we provide with our many projects. Prayer and bible study underpins all our work, including that with our Link Dioceses, both in this country and overseas. We provide quiet days and retreats for our members to enable them to spend time together in prayer and meditation. The only criteria for membership is that you have been baptised in the name of the Trinity.
