Having a Vision and Values are intrinsic parts of a charity and keeping them to the forefront in everything we do is essential. Using our Five Year Plan, which constantly evolves as needs change, we can be certain that every member is aware of what we are striving towards in this diocese.

Our Five Year Plan can be summed up in just three words; Faith, Fellowship and Families each of which has it’s own themes to keep us focused.

Faith: Baptism, Loving for Life, Marriage, Quiet Days

Fellowship: Overseas links, unity in prayer

Families:  Away From It All Family Holiday (AFIA), Child Contact Centres, RAF Odiham Family Day,

You can discover more on these subjects throughout this website, whilst fuller details of our Vision, Aim, Mission, Values and Beliefs are shown below.

Vision: Our vision is of a world where God’s love is shown through loving, respectful, and flourishing relationships

Aim and Purpose: To demonstrate the Christian faith in action by the transformation of communities worldwide through the nurture of the family in its many forms


  • 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

Values: Mothers’ Union is firmly rooted in a voluntary ethos. Its governance, leadership, and programmes are driven by and undertaken through members around the world as they respond to God’s call to faith and action


  • We believe in the value of each individual and their unique qualities

  • We believe in the value of relationships. Jesus said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself.”

  • We believe in the value of the family in its many forms as a source of love and support for individuals and the basis for a caring community
