Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) Emmanuel Church Freretown Kisauni Mothers Union

Mothers union

The Mothers' Union is a worldwide Anglican organization whose purpose is to be concerned with all aspects of Christian family life. The Mothers' Union was founded in 1876 by Mary Sumner. When her first child was born she was overwhelmed by what she saw as the awesome responsibility of parents, not only in caring for their children’s physical well-being, but also for their spiritual nurture and growth.

Kenya,  Mothers Union was started in 1918 by Bishop’s wife Mrs. Beecher.  In 4th March 1956, the first members were enrolled at Muingoiya, today there are over 400,000 members spread within the all the 32 Dioceses.

As a Voluntary Organisation, the Mothers Union offers friendship care and unconditional

love to thousands of women and their families throughout the world. It is a lifeline for many

families. It is a praying, teaching and caring society.

As one Bishop said “A church without Mothers Union is not alive”

Our Aims & Objectives

The aim is the advancement of Christian religion in the sphere of marriage and family life. In Order to carry this out, there are five objectives.

  1. To hold Christ’s teaching on the nature of marriage and to promote it’s wider understanding.Mothers Union holds conferences and training sessions, including marriage preparation, and also hold’s retreats to develop spiritual support and development to all.

  2. To encourage parents to bring up their children in the faith and love of the church. In many ways the members give practical support to young families both within the church and the wider community e.g.  running nursery schools,  counselling and visitations.
  3. To maintain a wide fellowship of Christians united in prayer, worship and service. Members not only give generously to the less fortunate, they are also involved in projects in the church and outside the church and also pray daily through a wave of prayer for fellow members around the world.

  4. To promote conditions in the society favourable to stable family life and the protection of  the children. Any issues affecting the family are discussed and comments passed to the Vicar and church Parish council for guidance.

  5. To help those whose family life has met with adversity. Mothers Union  is involved in offering practical support e.g. visiting prisoners, raising money for widows and children amongst us , counselling and the HIV and AIDS affected amongst us and spending  together to build one another.


Membership is open to women who are over 25 years of age as associate members, and all who have had their marriages solemnized in church. Widowed women who have attained the age of 45 years can become full members.
