Immanuel Women’s Guild, Woden

A chance remark from a mother to her daughter resulted in a wonderful invitation to members of our Guild. That remark was along the lines of “I wonder if anyone will invite us to a ‘Seniors Luncheon’ when we’re too old to continue this service ourselves”!

The Zion Women’s Fellowship, Angaston is a group of 12 women who are dedicated, cheerful, well-organised, and always willing to help.

Ballarat Ladies Fellowship

Ballarat Ladies Fellowship got off to a flying start for 2020 with a large group meeting at our President, Doreen Huebner’s, lovely property at Smythesdale. There was much chatter and sharing after the Christmas break and, of course, ladies enjoyed strolling around the gorgeous garden. It was good to start, again, the Bible Studies from Lutheran Women with Pastor Adrian. We have decided to have most of our meetings this year in ladies’ homes (cool in summer and …

LWSA-NT President’s Report

The 2019/2020 year began with a time of celebration, as some 30 members flew to Perth to join our LWWA sisters for their 50th Annual Convention.

It’s special to see the joy on this day, as some 200 travel from all over the state to be together. Bishop of LCA-SA-NT, …

Each retreat is hosted by a volunteer fellowship or group of ladies, making very diverse weekends. It is wonderful to see how God moves the hearts of these host ladies to choose themes and then focus our attention on God …
