Our Vision -
Our vision today is still of a world where God’s love is shown through loving, respectful,

We aim to show our Christian faith by the transformation of communities worldwide.
Our Values -
We work with people of all faiths and none, irrespective of their gender, marital

We have a close association with the Scottish Episcopal Church. The majority of
our 700 members have joined branches that meet regularly in their local Scottish
Episcopal Church. These churches are organised into dioceses with a bishop who is
their chief pastor. The Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church is the patron of
our Province and many of the diocesan bishops are the patron of the Mothers’ Union
in their own diocese
For more information about the dioceses and the branches in each diocese, please
visit our dioceses page.
We also have diocesan members and indoor members.
Membership is available to all baptised Christians who support the Aims and Objectives
