1st and 3rd Tuesdays 2pm St Hilary’s Mothers’ Union was formed in 1926. We have 39 members and we usually meet in our Parish Centre on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday at 2 pm (there are some exceptions). We have a variety of speakers and all our meetings begin with prayers. We have an annual visit to Brecon Cathedral for our Diocesan Festival and enjoy a meal at The Abercrave Inn on our return journey. Our Summer Afternoon Tea is a big fundraiser for us and it enjoyed by many friends who join us. Our Christmas Lunch at Sketty Hall has become a popular event for about 60 of us each year. Mothers’ Union is a Christian mission organisation working with people of all faiths or none. There are 4 million members active in 83 countries worldwide. Everyone is welcome at our meetings, male, female, married, single or divorced people.
Our Archbishop & bishops at St Mary’s      Ruth Roberts, Lynne Tembey & Bev Jullien Swansea Hosts Mothers’ Union General Meeting 2018 Visitors from all over the UK and worldwide were welcomed to two celebration services at St Mary’s, Swansea. There were 600 people at each service. The General Meeting at the Brangwyn Hall and a Welsh Choral Concert at St Mary’s were extremely well attended. On Monday and/or Tuesday there were civic dignitaries present, The Most Reverend John Davies (Archbishop of Wales), The Right Reverend Joanna Penberthy (Bishop of St David’s) and The Right Reverend Andrew Proud (Bishop of Reading, Central Chaplain of MU). We were welcomed by Councillor David Phillips the Lord Mayor of Swansea. Ruth Roberts our Diocesan President and the Reverend Kay Warrington the Provincial President welcomed our visitors on behalf of MU which was followed by an interesting talk given by Bev Jullien the MU’s Chief Executive. During the afternoon the Reverend Rachel Carnegie addressed members. After an inspiring day at the Brangwyn Hall, St Mary’s Swansea hosted a Welsh Choral concert in the evening. The compere was the entertaining Kev Johns MBE. Morriston RFC Male Choir were outstanding as were the ladies of Parti Llwchwr. The soloist was Iona Jones, soprano, who was absolutely wonderful. We were so delighted that she could spend time with us at St Mary’s. She is well known for performances at Sydney Opera House and New York Carnegie Hall. The evening ended with “Mae Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau” and we said our goodbyes to visitors from various parts of Wales, the rest of the UK and many countries across the World. We had many opportunities on both days to thank our Worldwide President Lynne Tembey who is retiring after six years in the role, demonstrating wonderful leadership qualities and certainly faith in action. Four million members in 84 countries proudly belong to our organisation founded by Mary Sumner in 1876. Carole Pickard Branch Leader St Hilary’s Killay
Loving Lord. We thank you for your love so freely given to us all. We pray for families around the world. Bless the work of the Mothers' Union as we seek to share your love through the encouragement, strengthening and support of marriage and family life. Empowered by your Spirit, may we be united in prayer and worship, and in love and service reach out as your hands across the world. In Jesus'name. Amen
    Mothers’ Union Prayer  
All this day, O Lord, let me touch as many lives as possible for thee; and every life I touch, do thou by thy spirit quicken, whether through the word I speak, the prayer I breathe, or the life I live. Amen (Written in 1876 by Mary Sumner MU founder)
