Mothers Union

The Mothers Union is a Christian organisation, which promotes the well-being of families worldwide. We achieve this by developing prayer and spiritual growth in families, studying and reflecting on family life and marriage and its place in society.

Where and When

The Dungiven and Bovevagh Mothers Union meets every first Tuesday in the month at 8pm either in Dungiven or Bovevagh.

Our meetings are very informative and thought provoking and we have a great fellowship within our branch. We always like to welcome new members to Dungiven and Bovevagh Mothers’ Union. For more information contact Anita Hill (Branch Leader).

Faith and Policy

The Faith and Policy Unit aims to facilitate Christian Care for families world wide. Faith and Policy go hand in hand. Policy gives direction and Faith supplies the motivation and energy for the required action. Creating and sustaining change in ourselves and in society takes time, effort, patience and commitment. We aim to nurture Christ’s love for families world wide.

Opportunities for worship and prayer are provided during: Quiet days. The Annual Festival Service in St. Columb’s Cathedral, Londonderry. Indoor members services of Holy Communion and fellowship.

Intercessions by members on a prayer circle where prayers are regularly offered for people facing adversity of any kind. Use of the Wave of Prayer, a calendar of prayer, which extends over the Anglican world and includes prayers for every part of the Mothers’ Union family in turn.

Social Policy Unit The Social Policy Unit works to affirm our faith and action as Christians through informing ourselves of community issues, suggesting practical initiatives and contributing to local, governmental and United Nation policies especially relating to women.
