Our Vision, Mission and Values
The Mothers’ Union was established in 1876. Its purpose was to encourage parents in caring for their children, not just physically and mentally but also spiritually. From the outset it recognised that strong relationships and the role of family, however defined, are crucial in building healthy communities.

Our vision
Whilst the ways in which we operate to fulfil that need may be different from that of the world of the 19th century, our vision today is still of a world where God’s love is shown through loving, respectful, and flourishing relationships. This is the essence of our work.

Our mission
We aim to show our Christian faith by the transformation of communities worldwide. We can do this through the promotion of stable marriage, family life and the protection of children. This is our mission. It is what we aim to achieve.

Our values
There are more than four million members of Mothers’ Union today in 83 countries around the world. Each member subscribes to the same values; the moral and ethical codes that are central to the ways in which we operate.

  • Firstly, we are firmly rooted in a voluntary ethos centred on mutual respect and collaboration.
  • Secondly, our governance, leadership, and programmes are driven by and undertaken through members within their own communities worldwide.
  • Thirdly, we work with people of all faiths and none.

The Mothers’ Union Prayer
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. Amen

Llandudno Mothers’ Union warmly welcomes any married, widowed, divorced or single people, mothers, fathers or those without children of their own who can commit to the vision, mission and values of the organisation.

In 2017 Llandudno Mothers’ Union will be working individually and with other branches in the Diocese of Bangor to support various Mothers’ Union projects, details of these events will be posted on the notice board in Holy Trinity Church Hall.
