As a Christian organisation the development of the faith of our members is very important.  Our faith is central to the work we undertake so needs support as we strive to put our faith into action.  Members in the Diocese of St Albans are involved in a range of activities and have access to resources which enrich their faith.

In the third week of June each year, it is the turn of the members in the Diocese of St Albans to pray in the worldwide Wave of Prayer. We pray particularly for our link dioceses of Rumonge (Burundi), Tabora (Tanzania), Kabba and Bukuru (Nigeria) and Nagpur (North India).

In October 2016 our Faith Event Exploring Prayer  – A Quiet Corner took place. This helped members learn more about personal prayer and different ways of praying.

The Mothers’ Union theme for 2016 has been A Celebration of Faith, combining a celebration of 140 years of Mothers’ Union nationally and 125 years of Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of St Albans. The theme for 2017 will be Faith in Action.

Each day, at midday, members pause to pray, creating a 24/7 prayer link around the world using the prayer resource Families Worldwide.   This handy-sized booklet describes the countries around the world and the work of the Mothers’ Union in those countries enabling our prayers to be informed and specific.



PrayerNet exists to serve members in the Diocese of St Albans.  This is run by email and intercessors include the prayer requests, made by members, in their daily prayers.  Prayer requests will be fully confidential (as will the intercessors’ email addresses) with only the wording used by the member making the request being sent on to the group of intercessors.   Anyone interested in becoming an intercessor, or for prayer requests, please contact   Catherine Lawrence is the contact, at the same email address.

“The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth”.
Psalm 145: 18
