‘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

  • August 18-24th 2019 - Rest and Relaxation

    ‘There no rest for the wicked’. I suspect that might have been meant to imply eternal rest. But perhaps those feeding off the greed of others for pleasure and war aren’t bothered about much more than unearthly delights. We can be concerned for those caught up in the stresses of daily living which in the modern age mean driving to childcare and school and work and after school activities. The stressors will vary according to status but almost always are frenetic. Those whose time is captured by entertainment in a myriad of forms suffer debilitating stress rather than relaxation. Perhaps all we can do is to make sure our spiritual feet are up and resting so we will be ready for God’s call in the crises that will inevitably occur.

    And on the seventh day God finished the work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all the work that he had done. Genesis 2:2

    As New Zealand is in the thoughts and prayers of people throughout the world, let us give thanks for the openhearted leaders of politics and faith during and after the shootings in Christchurch. May our Mothers’ Union members respond to any in need with the quiet assurance of God’s love for all.
