New Mothers' Union Chaplain Announced

The Reverend Ben Bradshaw

The Reverend Ben Bradshaw, Chaplain to the Bishop of Sodor and Man, is announced as the new Chaplain to the Diocesan Mothers’ Union.

Commenting on the appointment, Bishop Peter said:  ‘I am delighted that The Reverend Ben Bradshaw has accepted my invitation to be Chaplain to the Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of Sodor and Man, following his nomination by the Trustees. 

Danni Bradshaw – MU Secretary
Ben Bradshaw – MU Chaplain
Gail Eagles – MU President


As father of a young family, he shares the commitment to the Christian sustaining of family life which is the defining characteristic of the Mothers’ Union.  His will be a ministry of prayerfulness, strengthened by the love of the Gospel and a profound respect for every human being made in the likeness of God.

Ben will serve in this role for a period of three years, until 31 January 2022.  He follows Nigel Cretney, Diocesan Chaplain for the past Triennium, and I take this opportunity to thank Nigel most warmly for his ministry of care and support to the Mothers’ Union.

I ask us to hold the work and witness of the Mothers’ Union in loving prayer as it begins this new chapter in its life.
