The Mothers’ Union was founded by Mary Sumner the wife of a clergyman. She was spurred on in 1876 to form a small group for young mothers who were experiencing the difficulties of motherhood. She was concerned about how these young mothers related their Christian faith to family life.
From these small beginnings has grown a worldwide organisation, now with millions of members. The aims are still centred on children and their welfare.
The Wychwood Mothers’ Union meet every first Tuesday of the month at the Church Room in Milton. The Meeting begins at 2.00 p.m. There are usually prayers and a speaker, followed by refreshments.
We have a communion service in the Church Room on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 10.30 a.m.
We have on-going projects in the Wychwood area and we support national and worldwide initiatives.
Our meetings are happy, social occasions and are open to anyone who would like to come.
A warm welcome awaits you at Wychwood Benefice Mothers’ Union.
