Sheffield Diocese Mothers’ Union welcomes you …


We aim to show our Christian faith by the transformation of communities worldwide. We can do this through supporting strong relationships within the family and promoting reconciliation at all levels. There are more than four million members of Mothers’ Union today in 84 countries around the world. Each member subscribes to the same values. Read More


Mothers’ Union is not all about prayer, camaraderie or even tea and cakes, though the tea and cakes are very nice! We have a small number of projects which we support throughout the Diocese which we hope offer a little comfort to those in need. Read More

It is with great sadness that we let you know that Mary Williams passed away, after a short illness, on Thursday with her family by her side . Mary was our Faith & Policy Coordinator and had been Deanery leader and BL during her long service to Sheffield MU. Her funeral is on Monday 8th April at 10am in Sheffield Cathedral, Church Street, S1 1HA and all members are invited by Mary’s family. RIP Mary-you will be missed.

Annual Gathering 2023

  • It was a wet day!

Everything we do is underpinned through prayer

Sheffield Diocese MU Quiet Day

Over 20 members met in the Chapter House to listen to Rev Mike Reeder talk about ‘Journeying in Faith’. We heard about St Luke’s Hospital in Sheffield. There was time to reflect as well as time for discussion.


Mothers’ Union provides 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 meet together every month at Sheffield Cathedral for a Coffee morning and Midday Prayers.
