We welcome visitors to our branch. We are a group of both men and women who meet once a month for fellowship and prayer, combined with discussions or talks from guest speakers. We arrange and attend outings and activities with other Mothers’ Union branches and respond to the needs of our community and Church in a variety of ways. We assist in supporting families through various projects to which members bring a wide variety of skills and practical help. Although we are not a large group we are a very vibrant and active branch; we certainly do not sit around drinking tea and gossiping, although these are important activities too!!
Take a look at our Annual Report to see our activities last year.
The Mothers’ Union was founded in 1876 by Mary Sumner in the parish of Old Arlesford, near Winchester. She wanted to bring mothers together to provide support for one another and to raise their children in the love of God. Today, as an international charity, the Mothers’ Union does much to help and support family life in over 78 countries, especially through times of adversity. This goal is achieved through prayer, programmes, policy work, community relationships and grants to assist in aiding self-help projects. Please download the latest monthly Mothers’ Union Midday and Wave of Prayers.
Here at Holy Trinity, a Cuckfield Parish Magazine of 1889 mentions a Vestry meeting to discuss forming a branch of the Mothers Union and in 1915 records its formation. Our branch is part of the Diocese of Chichester Mothers’ Union and, more locally, within the Crawley District
