Happy Birthday to Mothers' Union

10 Feb 2016


This year will see Mothers’ Union mark 140 years of faithful Christian outreach to families of all faiths and none. Since 1876, when Mary Sumner first brought together parents in her own parish to build their confidence in bringing up their children, we have grown to an organisation of over four million women – and men – in over 80 countries of the world.
Why celebrate 140th, rather than wait for 150th? In the Old Testament of the Bible, in the first book of Samuel, there is the story of Samuel marking an unlooked for victory against the mighty Philistines by erecting a stone between Mizpah and Shen, naming it “Ebenezer” meaning “stone of help” as a permanent reminder of the leading and guidance of God “Thus far has the Lord helped us”. 

Over the past 140 years, Mothers’ Union has faced, and will continue to face, many challenges. Family life is under increasing pressure and the call on our resources is higher than ever. But we can look at how we are meeting these challenges and say, like Samuel, “Thus far has the Lord helped us.” 
This year over 500,000 people will benefit from Mothers’ Union’s support for family life. Many more will know the support of our membership without any tally being taken – because not only our programme work but in their daily lives our members support families in prayer, in voicing their support for policy changes and in their practical support. 
There has never been a more challenging, or more exciting time to be part of Mothers’ Union. Our hope is to train more members to help more families; to encourage greater outreach across those countries and communities where family life is under greatest threat. To do this we need your help. Please support Mothers’ Union in bringing positive change to family life through its work worldwide To find out how you can help Mothers’ Union mark 140 years of faith in action contact our Supporter Care line on 020 7227 0620 or email communications@mothersunion.org
