‘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

  • 19th - 25th August 2018

    TIME for REST

    ‘A mother’s work is never done’; ‘I don’t know how I ever found time to go to work’; ‘I feel guilty if I sit down and read’. Jesus had to leave his friends and hangers-on to pray: Jesus asked his disciples to sit with him and they fell asleep. Resting in God, resting our minds and bodies, these are both important spiritual exercises and need our full cooperation; need a conscious decision to leave the dishes, to lie on the couch without a device/radio/TV, to say our prayers. Here I am, Lord.

    The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul. Psalm 23: 1-3a

    In New Zealand members have taken seriously the need for rest, prayer and reflection. They joined with the Anglican Association of Women to hold a quiet day and looked at topics such as women apostles and women in mission, such as Mary Sumner. Likewise members in Tonga are faithful in prayer, resting before their labours in support of education for young people.
