In this largely rural diocese our Mothers’ Union members endeavour to express Christ’s love in a secular environment.

Through a wide variety of initiatives, our members enable the strengthening of family life and local communities across Norfolk and Waveney. Through relationship workshops, toddler groups and prison work, hospital support and holidays, we actively reach out to support all ages at all stages in life. Our members campaign locally on issues of importance and take part in national and global campaigns promoting equality and justice. All our work is underpinned by daily prayer.
