Report of ACW Inc. 25th National Conference

Seventy-two Christian women from around the country met in Collaroy, NSW, for the biennial Australian Church Women Inc. National Conference held 7–11 September, 2015.

The five days of conference included inspiring worship, Bible Studies led by Dr Sylvia Collinson, business sessions relating to Australian Church Women Inc., an ecumenical service, informative insights into projects in NSW supported by ACW Inc., a delightful outing along the northern beaches of Sydney, a fun-filled concert, a formal dinner and evening of entertainment to celebrate 50 years of Australian Church Women, tables of books and Fairtrade items available for purchase, and an inspirationally designed prayer room to visit each day.

Devika Ukwatte from Sri Lanka was a guest at the conference as the 2015 Winifred Kiek Fellow. Devika has been the Sri Lankan representative and Vice-President of the Asian Church Women’s Conference, and she has recently become a member of the World Day of Prayer Committee in Sri Lanka. As a Winifred Kiek Fellow, Devika also visited four ACW Units during her stay in Australia.

Mrs Lynne Scott from Christchurch represented New Zealand Church Women United.
