What is the MK Network Victoria?
If you're a Missionary Kid (MK) currently living in Victoria, Australia, this is the group for you. MKs are a branch of TCKs, or Third Culture Kids, who having spent a significant part of their developmental years in a culture other than their parents’ home culture, develops a sense of relationship to all of the cultures, while not having full ownership in any.
The MK Network of Victoria aims to create an environment in which MKs can comfortably interact and receive support from each other. We encourage MKs to value their uniqueness, and to realise their full potential in Christ.

What are our events like?
Games and movie nights, day-trip adventures, bowling, trampolining, soccer comps, and craft-afternoons are just some of the events we have in a 'normal' year! This year we've done a lot more events online for the first time, including joining with the MK Network NSW for their annual camp! We typically hold an event a month and try to mix things up a bit with a more chill catch up and then some more out-and-about events. Ours is a pretty varied network and there are always some regulars, new attendees, or old friends who have come along to say 'hi!' so all our events are a friendly, warm space to meet some other MKs! We know that it can be a bit of a daunting experience coming along for the first time so if you'd like to catch up with the leaders beforehand, ask a few questions, or have us connect you with some MKs with similar background or experiences don't hesitate to contact us, we're keen to meet you!

We need more leaders
We are currently looking for more leaders! If you are interested in supporting MKs who have returned to Australia or have some ideas for what you'd like to see the MK Network Vic do then contact us! We would love to have some new perspectives, experiences and insights into how we serve one another.
NSW MK Network
The NSW MK Network is a community of MKs and TCKs from roughly high school to uni age. Together we have fun, encourage one another, and work together to navigate the complexities of cross-cultural transition and growing as children of God. We have events in the greater Sydney region every few months and an annual camp in Winmalee.
If you've ever felt misunderstood and like you don't belong anywhere, come meet people who totally get it! We love making new friends.
