The Radyr Parish Mothers’ Union is part of a worldwide Christian movement with 3.6 million members in 78 countries. Its overriding aim is to support projects which improve the lives of families, and change policies which cause injustice. These projects take place all over the world, including several across Wales, such as those supported by the Diocese of Llandaff.
You are most welcome to join us when we meet in Radyr. We meet on the second Monday of the month at 2.00pm in the New Schoolrooms, Christ Church for a short service followed by a speaker and refreshments. Mothers’ Union is open to everyone: you don’t need to be a mother and men are welcome too! For further details and a programme of events please contact Julie Davies Tel. 029 2084 2923
Some more facts about the Mothers’ Union:
- It employs over 300 paid workers around the world. These are women drawn from local dioceses, so they speak the language, understand the culture and customs and have first-hand experience of the problems their neighbours face.
- Workers enable people to gain essential skills, develop and encourage sustainable self-help projects, and run training seminars. Workers also run the Literacy and Development Programme in Malawi, Sudan and Burundi, which enables learners to become literate and numerate as well as gaining skills in health, hygiene, HIV/AIDS and poverty alleviation.
- It is also involved in campaigning and lobbying on a number of worldwide issues such as parental rights, international debt relief and child poverty.
- It works in partnership with various organisations, including the United Nations, Welsh Government and Westminster.
