Flourish Women’s Ministry

Welcome to the Flourish Women’s Ministry page.

The Flourish committee consists of eight members.

  • President: Kerry
  • Vice President: Shaminka
  • Secretary: Karlene
  • Treasurer: Pearl
  • General Committee Members: Gill R, Gill G, Hannan, Rebecca

The committee meets monthly, seeking God to help us in supporting the women of the congregation. It is a blessing that in Victoria COVID restrictions are being eased and we are now able to meet for worship and have social gatherings.

The Flourish committee seeks ways to help women of the congregation stay connected and supportive of one another and grow in their faith. Please view the activities below to know what we are doing and where you can be involved.

Events/Gatherings

As 2021 begins and we are still living in the changing environment of COVID-19 it is good to know that Jesus has all things in his hands (John 13:3).

We are very excited to announce that we are holding a Morning Tea on Saturday 8th May at 10am at the church. It will be so good to meet again in person and share fellowship together. We plan to have a devotion, some singing and prayer and some reflections/testimony. We would love you to join with us.

Please feel free to email us at flourish.standrews@gmail.com if you have any questions or wish to know more details.

Prayer

In the 2019 Flourish conference on the topic of prayer, we were encouraged to meet in small groups for regular prayer and encouragement. We currently have several small prayer groups that meet in person or via phone or video call. If you are not currently meeting with other women for prayer, we are able to assist you in forming a small group. If you are interested in joining or forming a small prayer group, please email us at flourish.standrews@gmail.com to express your interest.

Do you enjoy reading? Do you enjoy friendly, encouraging discussion? If yes, then Book Club is a great place for you. The group reads a nominated book and then meets every five weeks to chat and discuss the read book. Book Club is now in recess and will meet again soon in 2021. We will discuss the book, Growing in Gratitude: Rediscovering the Joy of a Thankful Heart – Mary Mohler. We’d love you to join us this year so please send us an email, flourish.standrews@gmail.com if you are interested and watch this space for information about our next meeting.

Devotionsaaron-burden-J2XuOsy4mJE-unsplash

Today’s challenges can make a fulfilling Christian life for women seem like an impossible dream. However, the Word of God has all the secret nuggets we need to soar in our Christian journey. The Flourish Committee has therefore decided to share monthly devotions by email with ladies to enrich their Christian life. These devotions will be prepared by different ladies of the congregation. Kindly send your email address to flourish.standrews@gmail.com if you wish to receive fortnightly devotions.
