Celebrating 140 years in 2016

In 2016 Mothers' Union celebrated our 140th Anniversary!

It marked 140 years of faithful Christian outreach to families of all faiths and none. Since 1876, when Mary Sumner first brought together parents in her own parish to build their confidence in bringing up their children in the Christian faith, we have grown to an organisation of over four million women – and men – in over 80 countries of the world.
