PROGRAMS for Mums (MOPS & MUMSnext)

At MOPS we believe that better mums make a better world. We also believe that being a mum is probably the most important job there is - you are raising a human being! Our focus of both groups is to provide a consistent space of support, encouragement, insight and love for mothers of all walks of life. Let's join in this journey together and help each other to be the best mums we can be!

Alternating each Monday of school term, MOPS & MUMSnext meets at Marion Church of Christ**

Contact our Office or connect to our MOPS Marion Facebook page (click on the tab - Related Website to be taken directly to the MOPS Marion Facebook page)

for all up to date information, session dates and general information about both groups

MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers)

9.30am-11.30am (fortnightly – even weeks)

MOPS is for uniquely tailored for Mums with young children (pregnancy-6 years). Mums are welcome to come just as they are to make friends, enjoy time out from kids, have fun, and gain the confidence to reach their full potential as Mums. Children are lovingly cared for in the MOPSkids program by accredited volunteer carers. This allows Mums to relax and enjoy a morning of connecting together over tea & coffee, morning tea, group discussions, craft and wonderful support from our Mentor Mums.


$5 per session/$25 per term (EFTPOS available) - first session is free


9am-11am (fortnightly – odd weeks)

MUMSnext is the continuation of MOPS for Mums who no longer have pre-school aged children or predominantly have school-aged children. As our children grow it doesn’t get easier, but it does change. MUMSnext recognises this change and offers continued support, encouragement and connection for Mums through all stages of motherhood.

Discussions at MUMSnext are tailored to children of older ages and Mums with both school-aged children and pre-schoolers are also welcome to attend. Although there is no MOPSkids program, younger children can play under the supervision of their parent while the MUMSnext meeting happens in the same room. MUMSnext is a casual BYO arrangement for Coffee & Tea. Drinks can also be purchased from Side-Gate Cafe on site.

MUMSnext Fees

$15 per term (EFTPOS available) **Free for MOPS mums (when fully paid for MOPS term) - first session is free



Kids are a precious gift from God. That's why we provide quality, energetic, and fun programming for them at the 10am service.
