One of the ways we have been developing the work and ministry of FIEC for more than a decade is by investing in the biblical ministry of women in our churches. Elisabeth Smyth introduces us to the Women’s Ministry Group which helps to shape this work across the Fellowship.
One of the advantages of belonging to FIEC is the pastoral care we offer to men and women serving in our churches. But Elisabeth Smyth says there’s been a gap in our care for ministry wives. Here she explains how we plan to plug that gap in 2017.
Our annual conference for women in ministry took place earlier this month. We asked delegate Catherine Heath to reflect on it for us. She says it was hugely encouraging to come away feeling refreshed and supported.
Before attending Thrive – our conference for women in vocational ministry – Genevieve Jennings didn’t know what to expect. Here she explains how God answered her prayers and helped her to enjoy the time away with other female church workers who gathered in Worcestershire in May.
Our second annual conference for women in full- or part-time ministry will take place in two weeks. We asked Fiona Hamilton, one of the speakers from last year’s conference, about her experiences of women’s ministry.
