The Mothers' Union was founded 140 years ago to meet a pressing need for Christian outreach to families. Now there 4 million members in 83 countries worldwide. Our aim is still to provide support for family life wherever there is a need.
The Saint Laurence, Frodsham, Branch of the Mothers' Union was founded just before the First World War in 1913. We meet on the second Wednesday each month except August, usually at 2.00 pm in the Parish Hall, though we do also enjoy meals out and the occasional outing. Everyone is welcome.
Through our coffee mornings we raise funds for a variety of local, national and international projects. We have donated funds to Mothers' Union schemes such as Away from It All holidays for needy families, the Worldwide Fund for Mothers' Union literacy, numeracy and health projects, and for local support for homeless young people, prison release packs and the Countess of Chester neo-natal unit.
On the lighter side, we have lunch out in June, an evening meal in July and an annual Christmas lunch. All provide an opportunity for members to get together for a chat, to share news and to enjoy a bit of fun
