The Mothers’ Union is a Christian organisation which promotes the well-being of families worldwide.

In the Ellesmere Branch of the Mothers Union we have a lively, friendly fellowship. As well as having an interesting programme of speakers, trips and social events, we are involved in a number of local projects, for example providing toiletries for women in a local Women’s Refuge, making story sacks for a local playgroup, and knitting for premature babies.

We meet on the second Monday of each month in St John’s Room at 2.00 pm.

You do not have to be a mother to be a member of Mothers Union, as membership is open to anyone (male or female) who has been baptised in the name of the Holy Trinity.


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.

Prayer of thanks for God's light

Father of all creation,
Thank you for signs of life and light, even in the dark and sometimes difficult days of winter. Thank you for Jesus' victory over darkness and death - and for the assurance that, if we put our trust in Him - nothing can ever separate us from you.
Help us to hold onto the hope you have given us and to walk on with Jesus as our guiding light. And may His light attract others who don't yet know Him and whom the darkness threatens to overwhelm.
Shine on us, Lord, that we may reflect your light and receive your peace.
In Jesus's name.
