Mothers’ Union is a worldwide charity with 3.6 million members in more than 78 countries. Our aim and purpose is to be especially concerned with all that strengthens and preserves marriage and Christian family life.
The Rainford branch was founded in 1895 and is in the Ormskirk Deanery, part of Liverpool Diocese. It has always been a large and active branch and is currently one of the largest in the Diocese with 104 members.
We meet on the first Thursday of each month, except August, at 7.30pm in the Parish Hall. We have a varied programme of speakers, discussion and worship. In February we meet at 12.30pm and have lunch. Our December meeting usually commences with supper followed by entertainment and ending with the Nativity story and carols.
As well as our own branch meetings we also attend meetings, fund raising activities and Festivals at Deanery and Diocesan level. We are a lively and active branch and any new members are always welcome to join us. For further information please contact the Branch Leader.
