The Mothers’ Union was founded in 1876 by Mary Sumner. When her first child was born she was overwhelmed by what she saw as the awesome responsibility of parents, not only in caring for their children’s physical well being, but also for their spiritual nurture and growth.
The purpose of today’s Mothers’ Union is to be specially concerned with all that strengthens and preserves marriage and Christian family life.
Leatherhead Branch was formed 109 years ago. Our membership is open to men and women, young or old, single or married.
We meet on the first Wednesday of the month at 2.30pm and have speakers covering a wide range of topics. Members not only work on fund raising for projects here and abroad, but pray daily through a wave of prayer for fellow members around the world.
Projects we are involved in include: Away from it all, which provides holidays for families which otherwise would probably never afford a holiday; and Assist working in prisons to provide crêches.
We offer friendship, care and unconditional love to people throughout the world, a lifeline for many families.
