LWNSW/ACT Retreat – Pathways to the Good Shepherd

PATHWAYS to the GOOD SHEPHERD was the theme chosen for the Retreat in March 2022 after nearly three years in the planning and development stages due to COVID-forced postponements. It was worth the wait! Those of us who were able to gather at Warrambui, near Murrumbateman, felt very privileged to be there.

Perth World Day of Prayer, 2022

On 4 March, many of the Duncraig ladies travelled to St Anselm’s Anglican church in Kingsley. The church displayed cherished items from England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Our pastor’s wife, Maria Rudolph, was the guest speaker, and she spoke of growing up in a non-Christian household in East Germany and then backpacking around Australia when she was 18. In Adelaide one day she wandered into a Lutheran church, was made to feel welcome and invited back to a Sunday service. Maria asked to be baptised soon after, wanting to know …

Zion Women’s Fellowship, Angaston

We are a small fellowship, being fed and led by God’s Word, caring for each other, and doing what we can to help. Our big event last year was a Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser in aid of cancer research, and in honour of one of our members, Joan Habermann. As we have a large hall, being COVID-compliant was very manageable. Our speaker was a local retired doctor, speaking about the latest in cancer research. I must say the hall looked stunning. We raided our cupboards for the old flowery china …

Woden Valley ACT, Immanuel Ladies Women’s Fellowship

Woden Valley ACT, Immanuel Ladies Women’s Fellowship, continued to meet throughout 2021, although we did have to make concessions to meet the COVID-19 guidelines. We sat at a larger grouping of tables in the church hall, records of attendance were kept, masks were worn (except when eating), no unnecessary touching, and we brought our own individual lunches. Of course, there was much sanitising and cleaning going on! All strange at first but everyone adjusted quickly, and it became the “new norm”. At our AGM in November, we thought that 2022 …
