Mothers’ Union is an international Christian membership charity that aims to demonstrate the Christian faith in action through the transformation of communities worldwide.
At All Saints Ilkley our Mothers’ Union group supports families and communities both in the UK and around the world, in line with the vision and values of this life-changing organisation.
Unfortunately, we are not able to meet at the moment due to the pandemic. Please keep an eye on this page for updates.
Our vision and values
Our vision is of a world where God’s love is shown through loving, respectful and flourishing relationships. We meet monthly (1st Monday of each month) to pray and learn, enable and socialise so that in all our activities we may as Christians show our faith in helping to transform our community.
Our mission is to promote marriage, family life and the protection of children and we are involved in many ways in the life of All Saints and our wider community, both home and abroad.
We subscribe to the Mothers’ Union values and ethos that drives the ways in which we operate.
There are more than four million members of Mothers’ Union today in 83 countries around the world. Each member subscribes to the same values; the moral and ethical codes that are central to the ways in which we operate.
Firstly, we are firmly rooted in a voluntary ethos centred on mutual respect and collaboration.
Secondly, our governance, leadership, and programmes are driven by and undertaken through members within their own communities worldwide.
Thirdly, we work with people of all faiths and none.
