Mothers' Union

Map of Lincoln DioceseWelcome to the Official website of Mothers' Union in the Diocese of Lincoln. Our Mothers' Union Centre is a 12th Century Church dedicated to St Benedict which has been re-furbished and stands in Lincoln High Street between BHS and Marks and Spencer.

We are open to the public on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10.00am to 2.30pm, serving FAIR TRADE tea and coffee and offering a place for rest and refreshment. Greetings cards, books and other articles from Mothers' Union Enterprises are also on sale.

Prayer undergirds all our work and activities. Prayers are said at 12 noon every day we are open at St Benedicts. Members throughout the world maintain a Wave of Prayer at 12 noon each day. The Lincoln Wave of Prayer dates are November 16th - 18th. On those days we maintain a chain of prayer with our link dioceses.

Mothers' Union has over four million members throughout 80 countries. The Diocese of Lincoln is one of the 29 areas of the Canterbury Province. There are 1,000 Mothers' Union members in the Diocese of Lincoln. Some belong to branches in their parishes, or are Diocesan or Indoor Members. Its aim is to promote Christian family life, underpinned by prayer, worship and fellowship.

Thanks to donations and fund raising Mothers' Union can provide grants for an overseas fund and emergency relief as well as the UK and Ireland fund. We are involved in projects both locally and abroad. A literacy and development project has enabled women in Malawi, Burundi and the Sudan to read and write, also teaching them new skills in health, hygiene, HIV/AIDS and poverty alleviation. At home, parenting groups and holidays for families under stress, help to counteract the isolation felt by many parents in their local communities. 59,000 members supported the Jubilee Debt Campaign to overcome poverty in the world. Mothers' Union is represented at the United Nations campaigning and lobbying on world issues.

The Marketing unit provides some very good literature e.g. posters and leaflets about Mothers' Union and more recently a new service book and a prayer book. A number of these leaflets are found in this pack including the Children in Church series.
