Mothers Union at Manston was instituted on December 12th 1940, with some sixty or so members. This Anglican organisation is worldwide, active in 83 countries and has over 4 million members. It's purpose is to promote loving, caring family relationships, to help those suffering injustice and to raise awareness of gender violence towards women and girls in the many communities which we serve.
They offer practical help using local people who can see local needs and act quickly as needed. The strength of Mothers Union is that we are ' united in prayer and service reaching out as Christs' hands across the world'. Prayer is very powerful and all MU members are united in prayer and action. To learn much more about us visit www.mothersunion.org.

Currently the branch at St James is closed but we still have active members in the congregation who are involved either with other branches or at a diocese level.
