Anglican Church Men's Society

The ACMS is viewed as the alternate to the Mothers Union, and is comprised mainly of men devoted to living out the Christian faith. The role and purpose of the society is “witness, fellowship and service”. Its patron saint is St Oswalds. Motto: Together Everyone Achieves More if there is Total Effort from All Members.
