Loving Lord
We thank you for your love so freely given to us all.
We pray for families around the world.
Bless the work of the Mothers' Union as we seek to share your love through the encouragement, strengthening and support of marriage and family life.
Empowered by your Spirit, may we be united in prayer and worship and in love and service, reach out as Your hands across the world.
In Jesus' name.

Mothers' Union: Ministries



It's not about mothers or fathers; it's not about parental or marital status. These don't matter in the 21st Century. It's all about Christians, working together through prayer, faith and action to help families and children in need, at home and across the world. Visit the main Mothers' Union site to find out more.

We are the Filton Branch of the Mothers' Union in the Deanery of Bristol West, in the Bristol Diocese.

We meet on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 2pm in the Coffee Shop. 

You would be welcome to join us. Have a look through the programme below to see what we will be doing over the coming year.

For more information about the Mothers' Union group, contact Linda Rawlings

Mothers' Union: About

Mothers' Union began back in 1876 when Mary Sumner set up the first meeting. Mary was a woman of deep faith, with a heart for prayer and determination to make a difference. She listened to God, then acted upon his call. So, she set a pattern for the place of payer in Mothers' Union down the years and across the world. Her personal prayer is as important today as the first day Mary said it.

Mary Sumner's personal prayer

All this day, O Lord,

let me touch as many lives

as possible for thee;

and every life I touch,

do thou by thy Spirit quicken,

whether through the word I speak,

the prayer I breathe,

or the life I live. Amen
