Helen Barton and Dorothy Marshall
Led by our Joint Diocesan Presidents, Helen Barton and Dorothy Marshall for the triennial 2016-2018 we have 43 branches across 9 deaneries and over 1,100 members working towards the Mothers' Union vision to strengthen and preserve family life and marriage, by our Christian faith through practical action. This practical action can be seen through the giving of self, in prayer, in voluntary work, and in helping those less fortunate than ourselves in whatever ways we can.
Welcome to our new website. We hope that you will find it easy to use and that you will be able to learn more about Mothers' Union activities in the Diocese and around the World, while keeping you up to date with our campaigning on issues affecting family life.
In the diocese, we are looking forward to seeing as many members as possible at Autumn Council on 20th October at Brockworth, when our speaker will be Provincial President Nikki Sweatman.
Looking back it was good to have so many members in the Cathedral for our Songs of Praise, where we enrolled Bishop Rachel and her husband Guy as Diocesan Members. A truly uplifting experience and a first for Mothers' Union in Gloucester.
Till next time, With love and prayers,
Dorothy and Helen, Joint Diocesan Presidents
