The northern part of the diocese is rural with the small market towns of Knighton, Llandrindod Wells, Builth Wells, Hay on Wye, Crickhowell and Brecon. From Brecon, the diocese stretches through the Brecon Beacons and down through the Swansea Valley to the City of Swansea and the Gower Peninsula.

In Swansea & Brecon, members enjoy the fellowship of meeting in branches or of being a diocesan link. Members are committed to furthering the work of Mothers' Union by helping to fund a variety of projects which improve the lives of families both locally and worldwide. The first branch of Mothers' Union in Wales was formed in our diocese at Llandrindod Wells, in 1884, and there are now 34 branches with about 812 members.

Indoor members are members who can no longer attend branch meetings because they are housebound through age, illness or because they are carers. These members receive Christmas and Easter greetings and the Diocesan Newsletter. They provide prayerful support for the ongoing work of Mothers' Union in the diocese. Diocesan members may be people who do not wish to (or are unable to) be part of a group and attend meetings but who would like to support the work of Mothers' Union.

Our work:

  • Marriage week, where we promote the significance of vows and help prepare couples to love for life
  • We attend the Welsh Wedding Fayre which happens twice a year in Swansea
  • We raise money for the Mothers' Union relief fund every Christmas
  • Some members knit squares which are sent to Uganda
  • We provide support for families in Safe Houses, donating groceries at key times of the year as well as toiletries and school uniforms
  • We provide caravan holidays for families who are in need
