Mothers' Union - Holy Trinity & All Saints


Mothers’ Union is a movement of over 4 million Christian members in 84 countries Worldwide. MU is unique because members work as volunteers in local communities – UK & Worldwide, putting their faith into action by acts great & small, giving individuals in need a helping hand & enabling communities ( of all faiths & none ) to have confidence & skills to transform their lives in a sustainable way.

Members are not all mothers or even all women. They are single, married, parents, grandparents or young adults just beginning to express their social conscience.

The movement was started in 1876 by Mary Sumner to support families as they brought up their children as Christians.  MU is underpinned by Prayer, our ‘Wave of Prayer’ is a continuous expression of our commitment in prayer to each other including our overseas links.  

To find out more about MU across the world go to

Our Mothers Union is a joint group of the MU members from All Saints, Higher Walton and Holy Trinity, Hoghton.  We also welcome members from other local branches too.

Locally some of our projects are supporting the homeless, refugees and those affected by domestic abuse. 

We make crosses in your pocket, fiddle pinnies & twiddle muffs which are sent to hospitals, dementia patients and prisoners. 


There is a Diocesan MU caravan at Morecambe, which is used to support the MU holiday scheme, as a local branch we have always supported this project through our fundraising.

We hold our meetings on the 3rd Tuesday of each month ( except July & August) in Holy Trinity Church Hall at 2pm .

Everyone welcome – non members are very welcome
