Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of St Asaph covers Denbighshire, Flintshire, Western Merionethshire and Conwy
The Diocese of St Asaph is diverse and beautiful within its nearly 100 mile length. From the Conwy Valley in the west, across the north Wales coast, along the border with English counties and then into the heart of Wales towards Newtown.
Today, our branches with over 600 members are arranged into family groups within their Diocesan Mission Areas .
The trustees and officials meet regularly throughout the year coming together with a spring and autumn members meeting held in Wrexham. Up-to-date information is put on Facebook and on the diocesan website.
In 2023 all branches will be supporting the work of their local Domestic Abuse Units. The Domestic Abuse Support Unit (DASU) will help us to focus and direct that support so that all members can be involved in one way or another depending on their skills and abilities
Members can be involved in the following projects
Several branches have connections to their local Womens’ Refuge/Domestic Abuse Support Units/Refugee families - by providing basic toiletries, bedding, toys etc. Most branches 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 also hats for seafarers
Berwyn Prison Wrexham - over 100 Christmas gifts were purchased in 2022 through the Prison Fellowship Angel Tree project
Our holiday scheme AFIA , has been redefined with funding only available in 2023 for group day trips.
There 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.
