Reflections from Ministers’ Family Camp 2019:
Over 40 women attended the afternoon session for Ministry Wives. They heard Women’s Ministry Facilitator Anna Moss present a bible talk and outline what she is doing in her role as the Women’s Ministry Facilitator. Overall it was an encouraging time for spending time in God’s Word, networking and praying together.

Jenni from the Women’s Ministry Committee writes following the Ministers’ Family Camp in October 2017:
Ministers’ Family Camp is a great opportunity for ministers’ wives from around NSW to make friendships and build relationships with other ministers’ wives. The Women’s Ministry Committee organised an afternoon for ministry wives during the camp, to gather together for Bible teaching, sharing, encouragement and prayer. Thanks to PY for running a childcare program and crèche during this time. Ministry wives were encouraged to check the Women’s Ministry website and Facebook pages regularly. The women were excited to hear of the imminent appointment of a Women’s Ministry Facilitator and prayed for the woman who will fill this position.
Karen McMillan from Drummoyne PC spoke on Ministry Marriages. She gave an excellent presentation with both Biblical teaching and practical tips gained from her experience. Her talk included group brainstorming on The Impact of Ministry on Marriage and The Power of Marriage in Ministry, giving everyone a chance to share their ministry experiences. Karen also recommended books on marriage which she has found helpful. The women then broke into small groups to share and to pray.
The feedback was very positive and ministry wives appreciate the helpful and practical teaching, the encouragement and the relationship-building.
Thanks to Sylvia who co-organised the event and to Sarah who helped on the day.
