The Mothers' Union

Text Box: Return to Organisations

The Mothers' Union was formed in 1876 by Mary Sumner, who was the wife of a Vicar. The original idea of the Union was to support young mothers and from that small beginning the organisation now has one million members world wide. The Mothers Union is a Christian organisation which promotes the well being of families world wide and is part of the Anglican Church.

Wigan Parish Church


Our branch consists of about 25 members ranging from 40 to 90 in age

and we meet about once a month. Our aims are worship, fellowship, supporting local organisations and having fun. We provide wash bags for the local hospital, baby clothes for the maternity unit, food for a charity that helps young people, clothes and bedding for Women's Refuge as well as supporting our Deanery, Diocesan Mothers' Union and our own Church.
