Who’s Who

Susan Rivers

Diocesan President

It is with great joy that I have been elected as Diocesan President for the second triennium. I have been a member of Mothers’ Union for 40 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 recover from the COVID19 pandemic 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.
