Membership

Would you like to join us?

Contact with Newcastle Mothers' Union can be made in the first instance by emailing our President Margy Tasker-Brown 
 

Our members are not all mothers, or even all women. Single, married, parents, grandparents, or young adults just beginning to express their social conscience. For all 4 million members, what Mothers' Union provides is a network through which they can serve Christ in their own community - through prayer, financial support and actively working at the grassroots level in programmes that meet local needs. We lobby local and national governments on issues affecting family life and campaign to challenge legislation that neglects the vulnerable and marginalised. We are also represented at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.

Branch Membership
Members are part of a group attached to a parish who meet together usually once a month for fellowship, worship and a talk. They also engage in projects and join in deanery and diocesan events.

Diocesan Membership
Diocesan Membership is for those who, for a variety of reasons, do not want to be a member of a branch, or cannot because there is no local branch. Each member has a contact that sends them The Journal (the diocesan magazine), and other publications, together with a letter informing them of local and diocesan events to which they are invited. Some diocesan members take part in projects with local groups or within their area and some hold office or participate in an area of work in which they are particularly interested. Some simply use their membership as a way of supporting the Mothers’ Union.

Indoor Members’ 
This type of membership is for those who are not able to participate in other types of membership, but still wish to retain their interest in the Mothers’ Union. They each have a correspondent to keep them informed about the current MU. These members form a powerhouse of prayer for the society.

All members receive a copy of Connected (The Mothers Union Magazine) 

and the Prayer Diary through the post from Mary Sumner House.
