Southside International MOPS is a local church-based ministry to mothers of children from birth to 5 years old. We are a microcosm of the MOPS family throughout Australia and worldwide.
At Southside International MOPS we understand that while mothering matters, it can be challenging and we exist to support mums during this season of their life. Whether you’ve just had your first child or you’re a seasoned campaigner, we want you to know that you’re are not alone and you don’t have to do it alone.
Here at SIMOPS, we meet fortnightly on Wednesdays at the Southside International Church Training Centre building, located at 613 Beenleigh Rd, Sunnybank Hills 4109.
Each MOPS morning is about 2 hours long and typically includes the following elements:
- Morning Tea
- Guest Speaker
- Group Discussion
- Creative Activity
Our meetings are designed to provide you with opportunities to relax, make new friends, enjoy adult conversation, learn a new skill or craft, hear guest speakers, and be involved in group discussions on topics of interest to Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS). Also unique to Southside is the international flavour our members bring to the group.
Just as MOPS aims to meet the needs of Mums, MOPPETS aims to meet the needs of pre-school children aged 0-5. Children are split into three different groups: 0-14 mths, 15mths-2.5yrs and 3-5 yrs, with programmes catering to their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual development.
MOPPETS is run concurrently with MOPS in a separate room. It gives mothers some time off from their children to interact with other mothers in a relaxed environment.
Mothers can be assured that MOPPETS carers provide a loving and caring atmosphere for MOPS’ children. Activities include social play, games, art and crafts, bible stories, songs and video.
