Women's Ministry

Women's ministry at St. Andrew's

The Flourish Women's Ministry seeks to:

  1. Care and nurture women in our congregation
  2. Encourage women to live Godly lives and to be strengthened in their faith.
  3. Give opportunities to draw others to Jesus.

Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. Titus 2:3-5

The Flourish committee consists of eight members.

The committee meets monthly, seeking God to help us in supporting the women of the congregation. 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

After what has been a very challenging two years due to COVID-19 things finally seem to be more settled. God has been with us and blessing us despite the challenges. Jesus really does have all things in his hands (John 13:3).

 

Physical gatherings are now possible so, “… let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25

 

We are so excited to announce the plans for our May conference are now in full swing. Saturday morning 7th May 2022, please save the date.

Conference  May 7th 2022

We are excited to announce that Jenny Salt is our Guest Speaker this year.
 
About Jenny;
After 25 years of working at Sydney Missionary and Bible College Jenny is now entering into a new season of ministry – mentoring women in ministry in the context of the local church. She’s looking forward to encouraging them, listening, praying with and for them, and opening the Word together. And with the new year, she’s looking forward to new opportunities to serve the Lord and encourage her sisters in Christ.
 

The theme for this years conference is; Love in Hard Places  

Bible talks will be from the book of Ruth

The story of the book of Ruth begins at a time when there was no king in Israel, on a day when there was no bread in Bethlehem and with a family of bitter experience and no hope.  

 On first glance, the focus of the book is on Naomi, a widow from BethlehemRuth, a young widow in Moab; and Boaza kinsman-redeemer

 But in a more profound way, the focus is on the steadfast love of the LORD that never ceases….for all those who take refuge under his wings (Ruth 2:12).  

 The message of this book echoes throughout Scripture and take us all the way to the Lord Jesus, our Redeemer and King.

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.

 

Book Club

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 seven or eight weeks to chat and discuss the read book. We’d love you to join us so please send us an email, flourish.standrews@gmail.com if you are interested.

Resources 

Devotions

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 monthly devotions.

 

Meals Ministry

The Meals Ministry aims to provide meals for families in our congregation during times of sickness or hardship. Many women and men have donated meals to this ministry which have been a great blessing to all involved.
