The Mothers Union at St Christopher’s Hinchley Wood is a small branch of a very large organisation. It is an international Christian charity that seeks to support families worldwide. In 83 countries our members share a vision to bring about a world where God’s love is shown through respectful, loving and flourishing relationships. Our members are not all mothers; or even all women. Our 4 million members are made up of females, males, single and married people, parents and grandparents.
At a local level, here in Hinchley Wood, we have a regular programme of events throughout the year supporting, not only the work of the parish of Hinchley Wood, but also many of the MU international projects. We have fun at the same time and welcome anyone who would like to come along and join us.
