Mothers' Union - All Saints Bakewell Branch

Building Hope and Confidence 

All Saints Church, Bakewell has a strong and forward looking branch of the Mothers’ Union.    The organisation was founded in 1876 by Mary Sumner, herself a mother of three. She was all too aware of the burdens and responsibilities of parenting. As the organisation grew a Central Council was formed and objectives agreed with a central vision that marriage, parenting and prayer were key to the future of families. You can find the history of The Mothers’ Union and details of its work both in this country and overseas on its website It now has grown to over 4 million members in 84 countries. Our members work around the world bringing hope and practical support to millions of people every year.

The Mothers’ Union is an up to date organisation with a concern for marriage and family life in the broadest of terms. The name Mothers’ Union is historic, so don’t be put off coming to a meeting simply because of the name. You do not have to be married to be a member of Mothers’ Union, nor a mother, nor is it exclusive to women. 

Our branch has regular meetings and also runs Tots and Teds (suspended currently owing to the pandemic).
