‘Christian care for families worldwide’

From helping people to read in Ethiopia to knitting tiny garments for prem babies: from running parenting programs to providing home-maker parcels to refugees; from supporting parish Family Workers to running family-related seminars in the community - these are just a few of the many projects of MU Australia.

We are a mission agency of the Anglican Church of Australia and part of the worldwide Mothers’ Union with links to 83 countries and over four million members who share one heartfelt vision - to bring about a world where God's love is shown through prayer and loving, respectful and flourishing relationships. 

As you explore our website we hope you will be inspired and encouraged to support the vision and mission of MU Australia!

Thought for the Week from MU

  • Thought for the Week from AMUA (19th - 25th November 2017)


    Sydney Carter’s ‘Lord of the Dance’ has remained a favourite for congregational singing. Discipleship is like a dance. As disciples/dancers we move to a routine. There is the routine of our communal Sunday worship, Mothers’ Union meetings, family gatherings. Each one has its own ‘step’ which we learn and knowing it, we follow or lead. Sometimes it’s a ‘quickstep’ and we get puffed out or left out completely, sometimes we get our toes trodden on or take a tumble. The most important step to remember is the Lord’s ‘step’- Love God and your neighbour as yourself.

      Jesus said to them all, ‘If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me’. Luke 9:23

     The people of Iraq have a sad, slow movement in their discipleship/dance with decades of conflict and daily terrorism. Yet even in the ashes of their country the Anglican presence in Baghdad continues to thrive. Mothers’ Union helps displaced families and poor families as well as orphans and widows. What a wonderful dance they perform when daily spiritual meetings are attended by 100 women, who then learn the dance of prayer and bible reading. ‘I am the dance and I still go on’
