Mackay and Whitsunday Life
The Australian Church Women will celebrate our annual Fellowship Day Service on Friday 28th July at 10am at the Iona West Uniting Church Brook Street, Mackay. The theme is Renewal through Trust: Growing in God’s Ways.
The Australian Church Women is a network of Christian women dedicated to encouraging fellowship and service across denominational, national and international boundaries. We seek to promote peace, understanding and unity through faith and love in the one God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The offerings presented at the Fellowship Day Service go towards the Winifred Kiek Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship honours Winifred Kiek, the first woman to be ordained in Australia. The scholarship is offered to Christian women of member countries of the Asian Church Women’s Conference, Australia and Pacific Island nations. The scholarship is used for supplementary training and further studies in theology or related fields. The 2023 scholar is Rev Priti Priyadarshan Sandhagalla from India who is studying for a Doctor of Ministry.
Please join us on Friday as we renew and celebrate in word and song our faith and grow in God’s way through love and trust in the one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Morning tea will follow the service giving us all the opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones.
