Anglican Mothers Union Australia

Mothers’ union mission

Go in peace to love and serve the Lord – the dismiss al at the end of the

Holy Communion service sends us on our way to be missioners for Jesus, in

His name. We are sent as servants as Our Lord Jesus Christ was servant. We are sent as lovers of all people, as He loved all people. Belonging to Mothers’ Union means to not only accept the ‘dismissal’ but also to be alert to the needs of others, to be brave and fearless, and selfless and overflowing with love.

Jesus answered,You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself.” Luke 10:27

The mission for Mothers’ Union in India is human trafficking, in Myanmar it is gender-based violence. Members want to go out and spread the good news God’s love for all, thus raising awareness of accepted practices and promoting the Way of Love.
