Get Ready For Global Day

Global Day is Mothers’ Union’s response to the call for action made during 16 Days of Activism, the worldwide campaign to end violence against women and girls.

This year we are coming together on Saturday 27 November, marking it by wearing a purple scarf.

We will gather, where possible, for a three-minute silence at 1.03pm (linking to the 1 in 3 theme). We want to make this as big as we can, combining the voices of our four million members around the world – calling for action on an international scale and in the countries where we live.

For more information, visit the Global Day 2021 page on the Mothers’ Union website

In Peterborough, we are supporting a major high profile event on Saturday 27th November when we will meet in a car park near the Cathedral, march along Bridge Street alongside other agencies and hold a service/ vigil in the Cathedral at 11am. Do think about joining us, you will be most welcome.

There will be more publicity of these events nearer the time but do please promote the dates. Let’s do what we can to stop gender-based violence – No More 1 in 3.

Mothers’ Union Annual Gathering 2021

The Mothers’ Union Annual Gathering 2021 was held as a virtual event on Saturday 25 September, streaming on YouTube Premiere.

Drawing on our 2021 theme of ‘Rebuilding Hope and Confidence’, this event was a celebration of what we have achieved over the past year and an opportunity to look forward to the future and the new triennium.

The programme included an address from our Worldwide President, Sheran Harper and our CEO, Bev Jullien, as well as a financial update and a range of inspiring and informative contributions from members across Britain & Ireland and beyond.

The virtual Annual Gathering, was spread over two parts, with Midday Prayers led by Bishop Emma finishing the first part. Both parts are now available on YouTube, with chapter timestamps for your viewing convenience. We really hope you enjoy watching these events, please use the following links to watch sections:
