Mothers' Union

Map of Lincoln DioceseWelcome to the Official website of Mothers' Union in the Diocese of Lincoln.  Our Office address is Mothers' Union Office, St Peter at Gowts Church Hall, Sibthorp Street, Lincoln, LN5 7SH.  Opening hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9.30am - 2.00pm

Prayer undergirds all our work and activities. Prayers are said at 12 noon every day when Members throughout the world maintain a Wave of Prayer. The Lincoln Wave of Prayer dates are November 16th - 18th. On those days we maintain a chain of prayer with our link dioceses.

Mothers' Union has over four million members throughout 80 countries. The Diocese of Lincoln is one of the 29 areas of the Canterbury Province. There are 1,000 Mothers' Union members in the Diocese of Lincoln. Some belong to branches in their parishes, or are Diocesan or Indoor Members. Its aim is to promote Christian family life, underpinned by prayer, worship and fellowship.

Thanks to donations and fund raising Mothers' Union can provide grants for an overseas fund and emergency relief as well as the UK and Ireland fund. We are involved in projects both locally and abroad. A literacy and development project has enabled women in Malawi, Burundi and the Sudan to read and write, also teaching them new skills in health, hygiene, HIV/AIDS and poverty alleviation. At home, parenting groups and holidays for families under stress, help to counteract the isolation felt by many parents in their local communities. 59,000 members supported the Jubilee Debt Campaign to overcome poverty in the world. Mothers' Union is represented at the United Nations campaigning and lobbying on world issues.

The Marketing unit provides some very good literature e.g. posters and leaflets about Mothers' Union and more recently a new service book and a prayer book. A number of these leaflets are found in this pack including the Children in Church series.
