In 83 countries, our members share one heartfelt vision - to bring about a world where God's love is shown through loving, respectful and flourishing relationships. Our members are not all mothers, or even all women. Single, married, parents, grandparents, or young adults just beginning to express their social conscience. For all 4 million members what Mothers' Union provides is a network through which they can serve Christ in their own community - through prayer, financial support and actively working at the grassroots level in programmes that meet local needs. We lobby local and national governments on issues affecting family life and campaign to challenge legislation that neglects the vulnerable and marginalised. We are also represented at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.

In the Dereham & District Team we have a newly formed branch of around 30 members drawn from the different churches of the benefice. We meet monthly on the first Wednesday of the month and have a varied programme which includes worship, discussion and education about MU projects. We fundraise for MU charities and aim to offer our support to all activities in our parishes concerned with nurturing Christian family life. We welcome guests to our meetings, for more information please contact Sheila Hanmer on 01362 655092
