Mothers' Union is an international Christian membership charity that aims to demonstrate the Christian faith in action through the transformation of communities worldwide.

We are working with people of all faiths to promote stable marriage, family life and the protection of children through praying, enabling and campaigning.

The aims and objectives are:

To promote and support married life
To encourage parents in their role to develop the faith of their children
To maintain a worldwide fellowship of Christians united in prayer, worship and service
To promote conditions in society favourable to stable family life and the protection of children
To help those whose family life has met with adversity

    St Olave’s Mother’s Union meets on the 1st Sunday of every month after the main service. If you would like to join us feel free to pop in or contact us for more details.

    There is an old Jewish saying:
    God could not be everywhere, and therefore He made mothers.

    Mother Church, Mother Earth, Mother of the Gods – our human mothers – all of them have been part of the celebration of ‘Mothering Sunday’ – as the fourth Sunday in Lent is affectionately known. It has been celebrated in the UK since at least the 16th century.
