Faith and Policy

The Faith and Policy Unit aims to facilitate Christian Care for families world wide. Faith and Policy go hand in hand. Policy gives direction and Faith supplies the motivation and energy for the required action. Creating and sustaining change in ourselves and in society takes time, effort, patience and commitment.

We aim to nurture Christ’s love for families world wide. Opportunities for worship and prayer are provided during: Quiet days. The Annual Festival Service in St. Columb’s Cathedral, Londonderry. Indoor members services of Holy Communion and fellowship.

Intercessions by members on a prayer circle where prayers are regularly offered for people facing adversity of any kind. Use of the Wave of Prayer, a calendar of prayer, which extends over the Anglican world and includes prayers for every part of the Mothers’ Union family in turn.

Social Policy Unit

The Social Policy Unit works to affirm our faith and action as Christians through informing ourselves of community issues, suggesting practical initiatives and contributing to local, governmental and United Nation policies especially relating to women.
