MU -Mother’s Union Glenelg

The Mother’s Union Glenelg branch started at St Peter’s Church 1897, just 2 years after it first began in South Australia.

MU has continued since then with many name changes, but with the same aims.

Our members are not all mothers, nor all women. Single, married, parents, grandparents, and young adults just beginning to express their social conscience.

There are  4 million members of Mothers’ Union which provides is a network through which they can serve Christ in their own community – through prayer, financial support and actively working at the grassroots level in programs that meet local needs.


Our vision is of a world where God’s love is shown through loving, respectful, and flourishing relationships.


To promote and support married life
To encourage parents in their role to develop the faith of their children
To maintain a worldwide fellowship of Christians united in prayer, worship and service
To promote conditions in society favourable to stable family life and the protection of children
To help those whose family life has met with adversity

Mother’s Union meets monthly on Wednesday’s at 1.30pm. The group commences with a short service, followed by a meeting with a speaker and afternoon tea.
