Mothers’ Union

The Chippenham Branch of the Mothers’ Union meets on the first Thursday of the month at 2:30pm in the Lady Chapel in the Church. We have a wide range of speakers. Our membership is of about 30 and are members of either St. Andrew’s or St. Peter’s Church. Not all of our members are able to attend afternoon meetings, but are happy to belong to a worldwide organization with members in 79 countries.

There are five objects of the Mothers’ Union:

  • To uphold Christ’s teaching on the nature of marriage and to promote its wider understanding,
  • To encourage parents to bring up their children in the faith and life of the Church,
  • To maintain a worldwide fellowship of Christians, united in prayer, worship and service,
  • To promote conditions in society favourable to stable family life and protection of children,
  • To help those whose family life has met with adversity.
