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 is meeting regularly by Zoom, seeking God to help us in supporting the women of the congregation.
Current world and local events are times as we have never known them before. As governments seek to control COVID-19 we are required to maintain physical distance and places of worship have been closed. We are no longer able to meet physically as the body of Christ. Despite our physical distancing and potential isolation it is important that we do not become socially isolated. The Flourish committee is seeking ways to help women of the congregation stay connected and supportive of one another during these times. We have had a number of ideas and hope to be able to implement them in the coming days.
This is the place where the Flourish committee can communicate with the ladies of the congregation. Please check this space regularly to stay informed.
We have set up an email address so that you are able to contact the Flourish Committee in order to express interest in our programs and provide your details. The email address is: email@example.com. We will also send you emails from time to time from this account, including email devotions, if desired.
The WhatsApp group aims to keep the women of our church connected via phone (especially while we cannot meet in person). In this space, we can share practical and prayer needs and encouragement. Please email your mobile number to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the group and download WhatsApp on your phone.
Ruth: Steadfast Love in Hard Places.
We are excited to announce we are planning a conference for Saturday 12th September 2020. Jenny Salt is a Lecturer and Dean of Students at SMBC (Sydney Missionary Bible College). She is our guest speaker and will give two talks from Ruth. We are hoping that our isolation may be over by then and we will have breakfast followed by the two talks, 9am – 12.30pm. If we are still under restrictions we will seek other technological ways to receive her messages.
In the 2019 Flourish conference on the topic of prayer, we were encouraged to meet in small groups for regular prayer and encouragement. The Women’s Prayer Meeting has met this need in the past. While restrictions are in place, these small group meetings could occur 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 email@example.com to express your interest.
We are planning to launch a virtual book club! This will be an opportunity to enjoy and discuss a nominated book together on a regular basis. We hope that this group will encourage the women of our church in their faith and in their reading. Please let us know via email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in being part of this group.
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 weekly 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 email@example.com if you wish to receive weekly devotions.
Bible Study Packs will be prepared monthly. Each pack will contain four booklets, one per week. Each month will follow a particular theme. Lydia is preparing the study material as part of her METRO traineeship. All ladies who are interested in receiving these packs please email us your details, including your postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If any families or households of the congregation are presently experiencing difficulties in providing meals or obtaining groceries, please send us an email with your details and need to email@example.com. We will work in coordination with the Deacons to see what we are able to do to help.
