Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of Oxford covers the three counties of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire
Welcome to Mothers' Union in the Diocese of Oxford. We are a dynamic charity seeking to bring God’s love to families of all shapes and sizes in a variety of ways to suit their needs.
Mothers' Union works in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire to bring God's love to others, whether that be through local activities like supporting children in their own church, or projects and campaigns that everyone can join in, such as our Hospital Project and activities we do to raise awareness of gender-based violence. We encourage our members to grow spiritually through quiet days whilst prayer and Bible study underpins all that we do to support our communities and the wider world. Membership is open to all who have been baptised. If you have not yet been baptised but are considering membership, please get in touch.
