We meet monthly as a Branch on the second Wednesday of the month at 1.30pm in St Mary & St Helen Parish Church and visitors are always welcome. We participate in the Communion Service and afterwards enjoy fellowship and refreshments in the West end of the Parish Church. Some months we have Speakers on various topics.

Our members participate in local and diocesan projects and fundraise for the worldwide work of the Society. Neston Mothers’ Union is a Branch of Mothers’ Union in Chester Diocese which is a Registered Charity (Number 221214). Neston Branch has 32 members.

We are a grassroots organization with a global vision

Before Easter we run Lent lunches consisting of home-made soup and crusty bread on a couple of Fridays in the Parish Church. The proceeds usually go to the Relief Fund. This enables grassroots Mothers’ Union members to be a source of hope in their local communities when emergencies strike either through natural disaster or man-made conflict.

In the Autumn we have a fund-raising event or afternoon tea for our Worldwide Fund. Mothers’ Union works with thousands of communities to enable development of all kinds: economic, relational, personal and spiritual. Our local action aims to empower people to support themselves to achieve lasting positive change.
Two of our members run a sales table at various times in aid of AFIA (Away from it All), a holiday scheme helping families who have met with adversity.

In the Parish we give a children’s Bible to all Baptism Candidates and send Baptism Anniversary Cards for two years afterwards.

Members run a Knit and Natter group fortnightly which is very popular and open to all.

Some of our members run and support the Stay and Play group on a Friday morning (9.15 – 11.15am) in Neston Parish Church for families and carers with pre-school children.

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.


Let us go forward rejoicing that God loves us and gives us all we need for life. 
As the children of God, we take his love into the world that others may also have the fullness of life
as part of his family. Amen 




Mothers Union (Neston Branch)

Mothers union in Neston is part of a worldwide organisation with approximately four million members in eighty one countries.
We have over fifty members in our branch and meet on the second Wednesday of the month in the Parish Church at 2.30pm following the weekly Communion at 1.30pm (any alterations to date, time or venue will be published in the weekly ‘Prayer in Action’ or via website. New members are always welcome.
Mothers union was established in 1876 by a vicar’s wife 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 their spiritual nurture and growth.
Later she formed a small group of local women, offering mutual support and help in rearing their families. From such a small beginnings she could never have imagined the extent in which Mothers Union has grown today.
The aim of the Mothers Union is the advancement of Christian faith in the sphere of marriage and family life. Mothers Union offers friendship. Care and unconditional love to thousands of women and men throughout the world, offering a life-line to many families. It is a praying, teaching and caring society open to both men and women who have been baptised in the name of the Trinity and support its aims.
Locally, as part of the Parish of Neston, we raise money to support ongoing projects worldwide, support, which is underpinned with prayer.
The Literary Programme is one such project, changing the lives of hundreds of people as they learn to read and write and are then able to work to support their own families. Many start up their own small businesses: an impossible task if you can’t read or write.
Nearer home, another project provides needy families with a holiday. For those of us who take holidays for granted it’s easy to forget that others, even in our own country, the shortest break is impossible on a tight budget.
