‘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

  • 17th - 23rd february 2019 - Purpose in Life

    Thou camest, O Lord, with the living Word, That should set Thy people free;

    But with mocking scorn and with crown of thorn, They bore Thee to Calvary.

    Here is verse 4 of the old Christmas hymn, ‘Thou didst leave thy throne and thy kingly crown’ AHB 206.


    With what wondrous purpose Jesus came and lived and worked; to set us free. Free to love and be loved, to go out on limb with a mad idea to free slaves, or to protest against racial separation. These are the noble and historic purposes which amazing grace bestowed on the Christian heroes. Each of us is called to freedom, to offer ourselves and our money to give abundant life to those in need, whatever their age or circumstance.


    For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life. Ephesians 2:10


    The stigma of HIV/AIDS only strengthens the purpose of members in Uruguay to help the needy and vulnerable. They have set up a home for people living with HIV/AIDS and their families. They also support and make clothes for street children, run free family centres which provide vocational training for women. Those with a purpose in life pass that onto others.

    Praise be to God.
