About the Mothers’ Union in Scotland

The Mothers’ Union in Scotland is an active, forward-looking organisation in a modern changing world.


Members are committed to -


Our Vision -

Our vision today is still of a world where God’s love is shown through loving, respectful, and flourishing relationships. This is the essence of our work.


Our Mission -

We aim to show our Christian faith by the transformation of communities worldwide.


Our Values -

We work with people of all faiths and none, irrespective of their gender, marital status, ethnic origin, nationality, disability, sexual orientation or age.  


We have a close association with the Scottish Episcopal Church.  The majority of our 700 members have joined branches that meet regularly in their local Scottish Episcopal Church.  These churches are organised into dioceses with a bishop who is their chief pastor. The Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church is the patron of our Province and many of the diocesan bishops are the patron of the Mothers’ Union in their own diocese


For more information about the dioceses and the branches in each diocese, please visit our dioceses page.


We also have diocesan members and indoor members.
