The Mothers’Union is a world-wide Christian organization whose major concern has been Christian Care for families. Its main aim is to support monogamous marriage and family life, especially through times of adversity.

Its purpose is to strengthen and preserve marriage and Christian family life and to advance the Christian religion in the sphere of marriage and life.

Vision:A stable family grounded on Christ.

Mission:To promote programmes that contribute to the well-being of families.

In order to achieve the above, we are guided by the Mothers’ Union’s objectives which are:
  • To uphold Christ’s teaching on the nature of marriage and 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 favorable to stable family life and the protection of children.
  • To help those whose families have been met with adversity.
