Mothers' Union Diocese of Peterborough

Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of Peterborough includes the northern part of Peterborough, the whole of Northamptonshire and Rutland


Being a parent is both a joy and a challenge. It is a very important role, but one for which we have little preparation.

Mothers’ Union members play a part, through prayer and action, to support family life in their local community and throughout the world.  We share the good news of the Gospel and enjoy fun and fellowship. Our work varies across the diocese – wherever there is need.

Working with our clergy in our churches

  • We support our clergy in their ministry and mission
  • MU members are involved in all church roles, lay ministry, reading, leading intercessions, serving, acting as vergers, parish administration etc
