We are a movement of over four million Christians in 84 countries worldwide. Mothers’ Union is unique because our members work as volunteers in local communities, putting their faith into action by acts great and small, giving individuals in need a helping hand and enabling communities (of all faiths and none) to have the confidence and skills to transform their lives in a sustainable way.
The movement was started in 1876 by Mary Sumner to support mothers as they brought up their children as Christians
At Caistor, we have a small but dedicated branch.
We meet each month, on the first Thursday, at 2.00 p.m. usually in members homes and we are committed to supporting the life of the church in the parish as well as supporting the aims and objectives of the MU.
Currently, our Branch Chairman is The Vicar – and yes, we do have men as members! And no, you don’t have to be a mother, father, married….

Mary Sumner’s personal prayer:-
“All this day, O Lord, let me touch as many lives as possible for thee; and every life I touch do thou by thy spirit quicken, whether through the word I speak, the prayer I breathe or the life I live. Amen”
The Mothers Union Prayer: –
“Loving Lord, We thank you 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
