Mothers Union

MU Australia is a mission agency of the Anglican Church of Australia and is a part of the worldwide Mothers’ Union. MU seeks to share Christ’s love by encouraging, strengthening and supporting marriage and family life, particularly those whose lives have met with adversity.Membership is open to any baptised Christian who supports its aims and objectives, so men, women, singles and marrieds - not just mothers – are welcome. MU provides a network to serve Christin the parish, the community, and worldwide, through prayer, financial support and actively working in programmes that meet local needs.

Here at St Augustine’s, Merewether MU meets monthly in the parish hall  on the 2nd Thursday at 12.30pm to enjoy Christian fellowship in a varied and interesting programme of talks, discussions, outings, craft and fun.  Attendance at meetings is not obligatory for membership – we can provide resources and opportunities to serve beyond meeting times. Some of these include helping in the parish Baptism ministry with communication and gifts, and providing occasional gifts to those attending the parish outreach BBQ at Dixon Park. We also attend the Children’s Court at Broadmeadow to offer Coffee and Care, and we visit mothers in maternity hospitals with hand-made gifts for new babies. We offer prayer and financial support for our 4 million MU members overseas, where the needs are great but resources are few.

We love to throw a party for an MU good cause, or for a celebration, and are already starting to plan our next event. We welcome new members – why not join us?  For more information phone Jeanette on 4963 3068.
