Midday prayers resources leaflet here

Members receive a copy of our prayer diary – Families Worldwide – to help us in our intercessions. If you would like a copy, please ask – we may have some spare.

Wave of Prayer
All dioceses with a Mothers’ Union have links with other dioceses throughout the world. Our special links are with:

Yambio, South Sudan
Garissa, Kenya
Mbamili, Nigeria
Willochra, Australia
Thailand

And our turn (with them) in the Wave of Prayer is 8th – 10th June every year – when all our sisters and brothers throughout the world are praying especially for us, just as we pray for them in turn.

Our Worldwide Co-ordinator, Kalyani Menon endeavours to stay in touch with our own link dioceses, and reports at our twice-yearly Council meetings on any communications she has had with them.

Lady Day Services/Events 2020
Lady Day – the Feast of the Annunciation, usually on 25th March – has traditionally been a special day for us, and we mark it with services where we gather together around the diocese. 

 We regret that due to the Corona Virus the Lady Day Services are cancelled

Mothering Sunday – Make a Mother’s Day! March 22nd 2020
Mothering Sunday is, as you might expect, also a special day for us, and resources and ideas are available for services and other activities.

We also raise funds for our worldwide projects with the Make a Mother’s Day campaign – please take a look at the virtual gifts available, and support our work for women and families everywhere.
