Group and branch resources

Mothers’ Union is a member based organisation with our organisation and activities undertaken by members in their own communities, usually in local groups and branches.

These resources are here to help and inspire you whether you are looking for some new worship ideas, inspiration for activities for your group, or promoting Mothers’ Union to your local church and community

Activities for a meeting

Looking for something different to do at your branch or group meeting? You could use some of these ideas to help create a varied programme for your group. And don’t forget to look at the theme resources for meeting ideas relating to this year’s theme!

Services for a local branch or group

Worshipping together with local members is a vital part of Mothers’ Union activities, which strengthens faith and binds members together in fellowship.

Prayer and Worship Ideas

A selection of seasonal prayers for your meetings as well as Mothers' Union prayers for various occasions


Mothers’ Union members are great at making a range of craft items, such as knitted teddies, fiddle pinnies and prayer shawls. You can find patterns and instructions for making some of our more popular items in this section.

Promoting Mothers' Union

Make sure your local church and community know all about Mothers’ Union by using these posters on noticeboards, at events or anywhere you want to promote the work of Mothers’ Union. As well as these posters about our work, each month we produce a poster on a topical theme or subject so it is easy to keep your displays up to date

2019 Theme: Listen, observe, act – in step with God

In this year of new begginings for Mothers' Union we will continue to listen and observe in order to act with insight and integrity; neither running ahead nor lagging behind, but always in step with God. Our theme resources for 2019 have been created both to help engagement in the continuing global listening process and to build faith for the future. Some of the 2018 resources continue to be appropriate for this year’s focus

2020 Theme: Building hope and confidence

“Building hope and confidence” has been placed at the heart of our call to support individuals and families to transform their lives.  So our themed resources for 2020 aim to help us live out our faith to build hope and confidence in ourselves as well as those we support, and to nurture our faith as we continue to walk forward in step with God
