St. Mary’s Mothers' Union

Jen Horgan, M.U. Branch Leader


The Mothers’ Union is a women-led Christian movement with four million members across the world. At St Mary’s our activities are open to all: women, men, married, unmarried, parents, non-parents. Prayer is central to what we do. As an organisation the MU is involved in concerns such as modern day slavery, domestic abuse, gender based violence, homelessness and work with refugees and asylum seekers.
