Anglican Diocese of Armidale

The Anglican Diocese of Armidale exists to glorify God by introducing people to Jesus and helping them home to heaven.

 

MU Activities

  • Diocesan Committee

    A Diocesan committee meets once per term and organises events to promote and support Christian marriage and family life.

    North Kigezi Project

    The Anglican Diocese of Armidale has an established partnership with the Anglican Diocese of North Kigezi in Uganda. In 2015 MU Armidale took on the challenge of providing financial support to two MU leaders in North Kigezi, with the aim of contributing towards the cost of their children’s education. This support has been most gratefully received and we plan to continue this annually.

    Wave of Prayer

    MU Armidale is part of the Wave of Prayer ministry that exists within the worldwide MU organisation. We belong to Group No. 84, set up in 2015 to run for approximately 10 years. From 22 to 24 October each year the Wave of Prayer rests in turn on the Diocese of Armidale and the five other Dioceses in this group. The Diocese of Armidale is partnered with the Diocese of Kimberly and Kuruman in South Africa, the Diocese of Kitui in Kenya, the Diocese of Kano in Nigeria, the Diocese of Kwara in Nigeria and the Diocese of Myitkyina in Myanmar.

    MU Armidale shall support the Wave of Prayer ministry by conducting Wave of Prayer Services at branch level, creating an unbroken chain of prayer between MU Dioceses worldwide.

    Prayer

    MU is an organisation that is founded on, and grounded in, prayer. Families Worldwide is an international prayer magazine that is published and distributed four times a year to all members, to encourage prayer for marriage and families throughout the world.

    Annual General Meeting (AGM) Day

    Each year MU holds a Diocesan AGM Day, where an invited speaker will address a relevant topic of interest. The AGM is also held on this day. All members and non-members are welcome to attend.

  • Armidale

    MU in Armidale enjoys being part of MU worldwide and with them we prayerfully seek to promote and support married life, to encourage parents in their role to develop the faith of their children, to promote conditions in society favourable to stable family life and the protection of children, and to help those whose lives have met with adversity.

    Our Branch at St. Peter’s Armidale meets on the second Thursday of each month commencing with an MU worship service followed by morning tea and a guest speaker. We also enjoy hosting and catering for parish functions when needed. Because of our prayerful concern for marriage and family life we keep in touch with families by sending a card on the anniversary of each child’s baptism and encourage them to come to Family Service on Sundays and become part of the Play Day group on Monday mornings.

    Our branch of 16 members gives a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us and we look forward to opportunities to serve God as we work together to share Christ’s love by encouraging, strengthening and supporting marriage and family life.

    Inverell

    The Inverell Branch of MU meets on the third Friday of the month at 1.30pm, commencing with a service in the church, and followed by a meeting in the hall. On occasions there are guest speakers.

    We are involved in a number of activities, including: visiting the maternity ward and giving gifts to new mothers; assisting with crèche for the 9.30am Sunday Service and the Mothers’ Bible Study; hosting a lunch for the Mission Team in April; assisting with the Kids’ Club in July and the Bumps and Babies Program in August/September; and helping with the Communion Service at McLean Nursing Home.

    Newcomers are most welcome.
