Faith & Policy


“I see the modern Mothers’ Union operating, through its objects and projects, as a religious order.”

Preaching in York Minster, Bishop Nigel suggested that serious consideration should be given to such a designation, emphasising the significance of prayer and spirituality, passing on the faith, and caring projects in the modern Mothers’ Union.

“In many places across the Anglican Communion, it is the Mothers’ Union that holds the church together. Often it is voice of conscience; it challenges both church and society”.
