Mothers' Union - Eccleshill Branch

St Luke's Eccleshill has one of the largest branches of the Mothers' Union in the diocese, with 46 members (as at the beginning of 2014). We meet monthly on the first Monday of each month in the church building, and also for various other activities.

The Aim of the Mothers' Union is the advancement of the Christian religion in the sphere of marriage and family life. In order to carry out this aim there are five objects:

  1. to uphold Christ's teaching on the nature of marriage and to promote its wider understanding;
  2. to encourage parents to bring up their children in the faith and life of the Church;
  3. to maintain a world wide fellowship of Christians united in prayer, worship and service;
  4. to promote conditions in society favourable to stable family life and the protection of children;
  5. to help those whose family life has met with adversity.

For further details, you may visit the Mothers' Union at the national website at or telephone them at 020 7222 5533. On their website you will find details of the wave of prayer and daily prayers, the origins of Mothering Sunday, and a range of other information.


Our programme tries to help us meet the aims of the MU (above), as well as to provide an enjoyable time for those who come to our meetings. All meetings start at 7.30pm in the narthex (the glassed-in room at the back of the church building), begin with an act of worship (using the Mothers' Union Service Book), and include refreshments (usually after the speaker or discussion).

We usually meet on the first Monday of each month except for August, but when this clashes with a Bank Holiday we meet on the second Monday instead. The dates of meetings can be found on the diary page of this web site.
