Mothers' Union

Mothers’ Union meetings are cancelled due to the Coronavirus restrictions, nevertheless we intend to maintain fellowship through the church website, by phone and a closed email group.

 All round the world Mothers’ Union members join in prayer at midday. Here is a copy of the prayers, they are also in the MU diary. Don’t worry if you miss the right time, you will be joining with other members somewhere in the world!

Midday Prayers

Jesus, Lord of Life, by the power of your word and through your actions of love, call us to be your disciples. Give us strength to be different, to stand up for justice and peace and be signs of your reconciling love for all.

God of Grace, enable your servants to carry out your mission here on earth through the work of the Mothers’ Union worldwide. We pray for the members in our link dioceses of Bukavu in DR Congo, Nyahururu in Kenya, Gboko in Nigeria, and New Guinea Islands in Papua New Guinea. We also pray for the members in our own diocese of Portsmouth.

We pray for all our members. May God be with them in every part of their lives, encouraging and leading them, sheltering and strengthening them so that they may work to your praise and glory.

Faithful and loving God, who called Mary Sumner to work for the renewal of family life: inspire us to follow her example and respond to your call to new adventures, new possibilities and new visions for the work of the Mothers’ Union around the world. 

May we always see the world through the eyes of Christ, speak to those we meet with the words of Christ, and take with us on our journey the peace of Christ.  Amen.


Mothers’ Union Prayer

Loving Lord, we thank you for your love so freely given to us all. We pray for families around the world. Bless the work of the Mothers’ Union as we seek to share your love through the encouragement, strengthening
and support of marriage and family life. Empowered by your Spirit, may we be united in prayer and worship, and in love and service reach out as your hands across the world. In Jesus’ name.  Amen
