Mothers' Union Diocese of St Albans

Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of St Albans covers the counties of Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire


There are approximately 1,200 Mothers’ Union members in this area, many of whom meet at regular intervals. Others, who do not want or are not able to attend meetings for one reason or another, are kept in touch by letter or email and are invited to Mothers’ Union events throughout the year. These are our valued diocesan members, some of whom meet in local groups where there is no branch.

Our work:

  • Local hospitals – emergency wash bags, ‘cheer-up’/activity bags for children, blankets and clothes for premature babies
  • Dementia wards/residential homes – memory books and twiddle-cuffs
  • Prisons – Angel Tree Project and greetings cards
  • Yarls Wood Immigration Removal Centre – craft items, suitcases, clothing and Bibles
  • Contact Centre – for children to keep in touch with both parents
  • Away From It All (AFIA) holidays – for families facing adversity
  • Birthing packs for women in Tanzania
  • Refuge centers for women and their children.

As well as the above, looking to the future in the Diocese of St Albans, we intend to get more involved locally by: promoting foodbanks, providing meals on a Sunday, helping the homeless, providing support for parents nationally and internationally by continuing to campaign to governments on social policies e.g. violence in families.

Mothers’ Union is active throughout the diocese. If you would like to become involved, please contact the office.
