Who’s Who

Susan Rivers

Diocesan President

It is with great joy that I have been elected as Diocesan President. I have been a member of Mothers’ Union for 38 years and during that time have held different responsibilities such as branch treasurer, deanery treasurer, elected trustee and Marketing Unit Coordinator. This gives me a good understanding of the demands of Mothers’ Union from branch to Trustee level. I was also elected as the Welsh representative to the MU Worldwide Council. We have much to do as we contemplate the new Constitution, new policies and procedures as well as undertaking as much action and outreach work to support marriage and Christian family life in the coming triennium. Faith and worship is central to all we do in the name of Mothers’ Union and we will continue our worship events in and around the Diocese. I look forward to serving as President for the coming triennium and ask for your prayers in supporting me in this role.

Lyn Evans

Diocesan Secretary

I have been a member of Mothers’ Union for thirty eight years and been involved at Branch, Deanery and Diocesan level, having been a Branch Leader, Deanery Leader and an Elected Trustee. I am at present the Diocesan Secretary and thoroughly enjoy being a part of a very inspiring team.

Sheila Jones

Have been a member for fifteen years. During that time, I have been Branch and Deanery treasurer. I have also been Social Policy Contact and was involved in the launch of the postcard. I am currently Diocesan Treasurer and a member of Faith and Policy committee at Mary Sumner House.

Lowrie Washington Jones

Action and Outreach Unit Coordinator

Mothers’ Union has always played an important part In my life. My mother was an enrolling member and I have been Branch Leader of Eglwysilan MU for many years. From 2009 – 2015 I was Deanery Leader of Caerphilly and then Merthyr with Caerphilly Deanery. I was privileged to be elected the Welsh Representative on the Worldwide Council between 2012 & 2015 and this year I am Action and Outreach Coordinator.

Barbara Treharne

Finance and Administration Coordinator

I joined Llandaff M.U.in the 1980’s and then became the Branch Secretary and then the Branch Leader. During this time I was appointed as a Trustee and in 2000 became Deanery Treasurer and am still in post. I was elected as the Coordinator of the Finance and Administration Unit for a second time this year having been Vice President for the Llandaff Archdeaconry.

Jodie Taylor

Vice President (Margam Archdeaconry)

I am branch leader of Llantwit Major Mothers’ Union, Deanery Leader for the Vale of Glamorgan Deanery and luckily it is only a very small deanery as I have now become the Vice President for the Margam Archdeaconry.  I started life as a valley girl up in Aberdare and spent all my school days there before joining the forces and becoming a member of the Womens Royal Naval Service.  I was lucky enough to travel quite extensively with the forces, since then I was a Civil Servant until my retirement .  I am blessed to have a son, a daughter in law and a grandson who ‘keep their eyes on me’.  As a Mothers’ Union member I volunteer in Parc Prison working with the children in the Visits Hall, which I have been doing for the past 7 years and still enjoy.  I look forward to my three years as a Vice President and hope I live up to the faith you had in electing me.
