Mothers’ Union National website

In the Diocese of Ely we actively seek to provide support and care for families, both in local communities and through our links around the world.
Through our work people can experience the love of Christ, and discover or develop a personal relationship with God.

Caring for families in this diocese involves us in, for instance:
Running Parenting groups,
Providing holidays for stressed families,
Cambridge & Ely Child Contact Centres,
Visitors' Centres at Littlehey and Whitemoor Prisons,
Oakington Immigration Reception Centre,
Cambridge Women's Aid and Huntingdon Refuge.

Through prayer and fellowship we in the diocese support members in five linked dioceses - Juba, Maridi, Yambio & Yei in Sudan and Kigali in Rwanda.

Loving Lord,
We thank you for your love so freely given to us all.
We pray for families around the world.
Bless the work of the Mothers' Union as we seek to share your love through the encouragement, strengthening and support of marriage and family life.
Empowered by your Spirit, may we be united in prayer and worship, and in love and service reach out as your hands across the world.
In Jesus' name.
