Inspired ideas

These Inspired ideas are just some examples of what many members are doing in their local community, shared here so that others can consider whether these ideas, or something like them, might  help them reach out to families, friends and the local community. 

The ideas have been informally grouped into categories: Parents and families, couples, communities, people in hospital, people in prison, campaigning, encouraging faith.  They can be viewed on this website, or each can be downloaded as a pdf, to share with others.

We hope that you find something that inspires you, and please share with us details of the support that you and members you know are offering to family, friends and the local community.

For general guidelines about setting up and developing outreach initiatives, go to the members’ section of the Mothers’ Union website

“May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father,
who loved us and by his grace gave us
eternal encouragement and good hope,
encourage your hearts and strengthen you
in every good deed and word.”
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

  • An Inspired idea:
    Engaged couples add their names and the date of their wedding to a prayer tree so that members can then pray for them.

  • Feedback on Inspired

    "Looking through the Inspired pages I really was ‘inspired’ to read about the variety of activities with which Mothers’ Union members are involved; some of them really simple so that even the smallest branches could take them on.

    Just imagine if every branch was ‘inspired’ to take up one thing – what an impact that would have!"
