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.

  • President: Shaminka
  • Vice President: Kerry
  • Secretary: Karlene
  • Treasurer: Pearl

General Committee Members: Gill G, Hannan, Rebecca (one vacancy)

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.

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

We had a very encouraging Morning Tea on Saturday 8th May. It was so good to meet again in person and share fellowship together. To sing together, pray together, to share God’s word and hear some encouraging testimonies was such a blessing.

Conference  postponed until 2022

We are soo excited to announce that we have set the date for our next conference. Jenny Salt from Sydney Missionary Bible College (SMBC) is coming to speak on Saturday 7th May 2022.

Topic - Ruth ‘Steadfast love in hard places’ Put this date in your diary. More details will follow.

“And 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



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 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. The next meeting of Book Club will be Monday 16th August 2021 on Zoom. We will discuss the book, I Dared to Call Him Father by Bilquis Sheikh. We’d love you to join us so please send us an email, if you are interested. The next book we will discuss is No Such Thing as Can’t by Lisa Sexton and Tyler Sexton.




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 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.
