Become a Member:
There are two ways to become a member. The first is by joining a local MU branch (Bendigo Cathedral, Eaglehawk, Cohuna, Kyabram, Maryborough, Swan Hill). This is ideal as you can then enjoy the fellowship, mission activities and prayer life of that group at their monthly meetings. 

The second is by becoming a Diocesan Member. This option is for those who live too far from a branch or aren’t able to attend regular meetings. 

Cost: $30 per year – includes Mia Mia magazine, Linked Together newsletter & contributes to our projects. Payment is via bank transfer. Email us with your Name, Address and Phone Number to facilitate payment. EMAIL:
