MOPS Australia has just passed 21 years! So, on Saturday so we held a party! We invited all our friends to our 21st birthday conference – the Every Mum Conference. Over 200 women joined the celebration – leaders, mums, and special guests from around Australia, as well as our keynote speakers from MOPS International. We also added a Friday night Theme Launch for our MOPS group leaders. Continue reading “Every Mum Conference – Celebrating 21 years of MOPS Australia”
It has been a long season of navigating uncertainty, living smaller and experiencing a little more fear and anxiety than usual. We have the opportunity to declare a time of fresh starts and turning ordinary experiences into extraordinary ones. Trying to do this alone is tough though. We need equipping and community with other mums. This is the reason MOPS Australia is running the very first Every Mum Conference this year, and you’re invited!
Are you knee deep in nappies? Or juggling the many activities your kids are part of? Then the Every Mum conference has something for you. Be encouraged and equipped as a mother, a woman and a leader. This conference is open to all mums. You don’t need to be involved in MOPS or share a Christian faith background. Speakers and workshop presenters will cover many topics on parenting, personal development, leadership and spiritual growth.
Making plans in these uncertain times can be a challenge. We designed the Every Mum Conference with flexibility in mind. So your ticket gives you access to all of the content online. You also get 90 days of on-demand access afterwards. Additionally, local hubs (watching in a group) offers an in-person experience that will show the same content as the online conference. Local hubs also offer the opportunity for connection and discussion together. Attending a hub is an optional extra*. The hub details will release closer to the conference date.
Date: Saturday 16th October (with optional Friday night sessions too where you can join MOPS Australia leaders in celebrating MOPS Australia’s 21st birthday and find out about the new theme for 2022- All About Love)
Time: Run live 9 am to 6 pm AEDT (each timezone has a suggested agenda on the website using the on-demand features when needed)
Format: Online (with in-person hub options) including interactive workshop session options
Registration is open now with an early bird discount on offer until 20th August.
Some fun features
- Attendee website and app- you will get a log in to view the content, find out more about speakers and interact with other attendees
- Connect with other attendees you know by scheduling an appointment for a video call with them- particularly great for those joining online
- Virtual exhibition hall: not only can you find out more about our amazing sponsors but also browse the virtual market booths for our Mumma’s online market for some shopping fun. Could be a good way to get some early Christmas shopping done! (see more info below)

We cannot wait to gather online or in-person for Every Mum Conference. You’re invited. Share that invitation with your friends too.
*Please note: as the offerings at each local hub will vary, tickets to attend an in-person gathering may incur an additional fee to cover venue or catering costs. The organiser of each hub will set the ticket price for that hub. Locations of local hubs are determined by those in each region willing to host a gathering. Please contact MOPS Australia at email@example.com ASAP if you or your church would like to host a conference hub for your region on Saturday 16 October 2021.

Upon entering the SA MOPS conference my heart instantly felt full. The room was full of colour, fun and laughter. Throughout the night we played games that really encouraged us to have more fun, we feasted on lots and lots of delicious food, and shared in great conversation.

“What if mothering was invigorating, transformative, and the most fun work we will ever do?” (‘Have More Fun’, Mandy Arioto).
Are we connected – but disconnected? Are we too busy doing for God but too busy to be present with God? Our lives as women and mothers are very full, but are we LIVING TO THE FULL? Continue reading “Living Fully – be women who are fun, fearless & friendly”
