This chapter examines the beginning and expansion of Anglican women’s ministry under the Chung Hua Sheng Kung Hui against the backdrop of rapid social and political change in China. It discusses the work of the Women’s Missionary Service League (WMSL) and the Mother’s Union from the 1920s to 1940s in different provinces, and their contribution to building the Chinese Anglican church. It explores in great detail the activities the WMSL and Mother’s Union organised, which covered the areas of spiritual formation, social service, evangelism, literacy education, religious education and war relief work. The significant role of Christian mothers in their children’s religious education was particularly highlighted in the promotion of Christian family as foundation of the church.

Keywords:   Women’s Missionary Service League, Mother’s Union, Chung Hua Sheng Kung Hui, Women’s work for women, Christian motherhood
