Chelmsford Cathedral

Mothers’ Union

Chelmsford Cathedral Branch

The Mothers' Union, along with all other groups, is unable to meet at the moment.  As soon as it resumes, we will update this page.  In the meantime, stay safe and keep in touch via the 'Church at Home' page of the website.

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.

The events for 2020 are listed below and leaflets are available in the Cathedral.
