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 privileged to be the ‘home’ of the Mothers’ Union which started with the vision of Mary Sumner, over 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’.

We hope you will find more about our organisation locally and the work and projects we are involved with. There are also resources which we hope will help you individually and in your branches. There is also a link to the Worldwide Mothers’ Union website where you will find information about the Mother’s Union work internationally.

The Theme for the Mothers’ Union 2020 is  – MU Listens, Observes, Acts – ‘Building Hope and Confidence’ and the resources will be available soon on the National Mothers’ Union Website Here

with love in Christ
