Membership of the Mothers' Union can be Diocesan, Deanery, Branch, Indoor Members or Friends. All of these forms of membership follow the same enrolment service and all members give the same annual donation to our organisation.

Diocesan and Deanery Members are not linked to a specific branch but are invited to attend all Deanery and Diocesan events.

Indoor Members are usually unable to attend branch meetings through illness, disability or work. Diocesan and Indoor Members receive regular letters and cards from our Diocesan and Indoor Members representatives. Deanery members are kept informed of events by the Deanery Leader.

Friends of Mothers' Union do not usually attend any meetings and are not associated with a specific branch, but they fully support our Aims and Objectives and are happy to give their annual donation for our work.
