Welcome to the website of Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of Winchester; we are a small part of a Worldwide Christian membership Charity with 4 million members in 83 countries.

We are priviledged to be the ‘home’ of the Mothers’ Union which started with the vision of Mary Sumner, 140 years ago, in the village of Old Alresford some 8 miles from the City of Winchester, once the ancient capital of England.

The Cathedral with its inspiring architecture is at the heart of the city and the Diocese. Mary Sumner is buried in the Cathedral Grounds – an area known as ‘paradise’.

In the following pages you will find more about our organisation locally; the work and projects we are involved with; resources which we hope will help you individually and in your branches,  and links to the Worldwide Mothers’ Union.  Please browse to your hearts content.

Thank You for visiting us.
