I am passionate about the work Mothers’ Union does in this country and across the world changing people’s lives, from helping rough sleepers in this country to enabling women in many parts of Africa to read and earn their own living.

I worship and lead worship in the East Downland Benefice, a group of nine rural churches just north of Newbury in Berkshire.

I have a degree in Computer Science and a post-graduate certificate to teach Physics. Science and faith do not contradict each other!

Rachel Buckley

Current Position: AVP for North Bucks and Website manager

I am passionate about Mothers’ Union as a campaigning organisation. We have highlighted through our local, national and international campaigns that we can make a difference for women and families.

I worship at St Peter & St Paul’s, Newport Pagnell.

I am also passionate about science, specifically Physics and Astronomy, and I own three telescopes.

Louise Butler

Current Postion: Unit Coordinator for Finance & Administration, Gift Aid Secretary

I am keen to work with my MU branch, The Churn, to make a difference in people’s lives by supporting families and older people.  I feel passionate about letting others know how relevant MU is in church and society and want to encourage younger people to be a part of this world-wide organisation. As a trained parenting facilitator, I am also “passionate about parenting”.

Place of worship: Associate Priest of the Churn Benefice; home church is St. Michael’s, Blewbury

I’m a competitive tennis player and currently enjoying coaching one of my granddaughters.

Tricia Campbell

Current Position: AVP Oxfordshire and MU Enterprises Representative

Rosie Jackson-Kilham

Current Position: General Trustee and Praying Fellowship Co-ordinator

Jenny Searle

Current Position: Fundraising & Communications Co-ordinator

Jean Vaughan

Current Position: AVP East Berks

I’ve been a member Mothers’ Union for almost 20 years having joined as a result of being encouraged to get involved in a knitting project that St Paul’s, Wokingham, branch were doing.  I was branch leader before being asked to take over the Deanery so now look after East Berkshire.  Being involved with the Trustees is very rewarding.

I feel honoured to be part of a worldwide organisation that helps so many people to improve their lives and lobbies for change.

You may be interested to know that I spent two weeks helping to care for pandas in China so I’m probably the only MU member who’s stroked a panda!
