Mothers’ Union

Chelmsford Cathedral Branch

Mothers’ Union thrives at Chelmsford Cathedral. There is a program of widely ranging talks and activities for the afternoon section which meets on the second Thursday of each month in St Cedd’s Hall at 2pm and the evening section which meets on the first Thursday of each month in St Cedd’s Hall at 8pm. Members can choose to attend either section or both. Despite the Mothers’Union name, men are also welcome to attend and become members. The main aim is to promote all that strengthens and preserves marriage and Christian family life.
