Mothers' Union: Ministries


Did you know that Mothers’ Union has been an integral part of the Church of England since it began back in the mid 1800s? Its work is to support that of the Clergy in their community and parish outreach both near and far. Mothers’ Union is now in the process of reimagining itself; bringing the charity into the 21st Century. If you feel this is something you would like to be involved with, then please talk to us. Our meeting on 8th September begins with an opening Eucharist at 2pm led by Revd Lizzie, which combines a global Wave of Prayer and is followed by a fellowship time where we would like to hear your thoughts on “Moving Forward”. The flowers in church this week reflect the Mothers Union colours, as a way of acknowledging our ongoing work.

Mothers' Union: Our Values


What is membership of the Mothers' Union about? 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. We offer a welcoming atmosphere and warm fellowship. Currently our membership consists of 21 full-time members.

We meet on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 2pm in the Coffee Shop. We also encourage members to be United In Prayer on the 4th Thursday of every month in your own home.

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.

Mothers' Union: About
Praying Together


Mothers' Union are proudly working in collaboration with the Clewer Initiative in order to end modern day slavery by 2030.

Modern Slavery is hidden in plain sight on our high streets. People are being forced to work long hours, for little or no pay, and under threat of violence in hand car washes.

The Clewer Initiative is a project that enables the Church of England and its wider networks to develop strategies to detect modern day slavery in their communities and help provide victim support and care. Both Mothers' Union and the Clewer Initiative believe that the tools to end modern day slavery already exist within our local communities. We envision that the Church, which is present and at the heart of our communities, has a primary responsibility in leading this effort.

You can help by downloading the Safe Car Wash app. The Safe Car Wash app is designed to be used by someone going to get their car washed. At the hand car wash they can open the app, logging the location of the hand car wash. They will be taken through a series of indicators of modern slavery; for example, are the workers wearing protective clothing, and are there signs that they are living on site? When they finish the questions, the answers are sent to a database which can then be accessed by law enforcement investigating modern slavery.
