From the Conwy Valley in the west, stretching  across the north Wales coast, bordering  English counties to the east and then into the heart of Wales towards Newtown and Bala, the Diocese of St Asaph is diverse and beautiful within its nearly 100 mile length.    

We were delighted to see Sheran Harper in September 2019 and took her on a flying visit to  all three archdeaconries.  

Today 56 branches with over 900 members are scattered over this diverse area.   We recently  completed a full review following the creation of Diocesan Mission Areas and the branches are now arranged into family groups. 

The trustees and officials meet regularly throughout the year coming together with members at the spring and autumn councils taking place in Wrexham. Up-to-date information is put on Facebook and on the diocesan website.

Membership may be aging but it is still very active supporting local projects and having regular monthly meetings with interesting programmes. The annual branch project is on a three year rota. Year 1 – AFIA . Year 2 – a local “hands on” project. Year 3 -  Fundraising for a specific joint project.

Our Work:

  • Several branches have connections to their local Womens’ Refuge/Child Contact Centres/Domestic Abuse Support Units/Refugee families - by providing basic toiletries, bedding, toys etc.   Most branch give supplies to foodbanks
  • Branches regularly present emergency toiletry bags to Glan Clwyd Hospital, Wrexham Maelor hospital and Oswewstry hospital
  • Knitters make twiddle muffs and premature baby clothes 
  • Meliden & Gwaenysgor meet children from Chernobyl and give them gifts. This is a regular visit by a group of children to North Wales
  • Rhyl, also Bistre, help provide a packed lunch for children during the school holidays.
  • A sponsored walk in 2019 led by the Chaplain raised almost £2,000 divided between   Diocesan funds and Mary Sumner House. Plans to repeat this in 2020 have been cancelled.
  • Berwyn Prison Wrexham - over 100 Christmas gifts were purchased in 2019 through the Prison Fellowship  Angel Tree project
  • We supported the Wrexham night shelter again in 2020.

The annual theme, growing in hope and confidence is  a deep desire to meet, pray and get involved in family issues whatever they may be. Within this beautiful part of the country there are many hardships and issues that Mothers' Union does not shy away from and sometimes it’s in doing the little things that can mean a lot.

The policy of the Church in Wales is to be bilingual. We include Welsh and English hymns and prayers in services and meetings.
