WHO ARE WE?
We are women in the Bassendean Presbyterian church wanting to support and encourage each other as we walk with Christ.
WHY DO WE MEET?
To encourage each other in Christ.
To get to know women from our different congregations and from other denominations.
To be a resource for smaller congregations helping to equip women so we are better at sharing Jesus with others.
WHERE DO WE FIT IN?
The PWA wants to encourage women in each local congregation to be active in reaching out to other women and helping them to grow in Christ in ways that suit their gifts and talents.
PWA affiliated groups can take many different forms: Bible studies, prayer, social, craft or other groups. It also means that even in your congregation doesn’t have a women’s group you can be part of the PWA.
Presbyterian women in this State join together to run spiritual renewal and training days and share together hearing about other people and ministries.
We send representatives to the PWA National Conference once every 3 years. We also network with Christian women throughout the world, through our national body.
WHERE CAN YOU FIT IN?
By being involved with what is happening in your congregation.
By coming to General Meetings and ”At Homes”” hosted by the various groups in other congregations. This gives you the opportunity to get to know other women eith similar interests in an different place and to hear of life and ministry here and elsewhere.
By joining in Training and Spiritual Renewal Days to help you as you grow in Christ.
We all have unique talents and skills that we can use for helping each other in Christ.
What talent or skill do you have that you may share with others?
For $5 you are eligible to vote at our two general meetings each year and so help shape what we do and how we do it. A portion of the membership fee helps in sending our representatives to the National Conference and in supporting those training for full time ministry in our churches.
