PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN (PW) ANNUAL REPORT March 2016

Theme for 2015-2016 Here is Love  

“We love because He first loved us” 1 John 4:19

 

PW aims to highlight the need for:

  • Love and unity
  • Obedience to God
  • Christian living and spiritual maturity
  • Service using gifts, time and money
  • Local and global mission

There has been much to praise God for over this year in our PW, we have known God’s hand and blessing in everything we do.  Attendances at meetings have stayed steady with an average of thirty ladies each night and we have had the thrill of welcoming some of our newer church members, as well as, several younger ladies to our meetings.

Through the various speakers over the year we have all been greatly blessed, challenged and encouraged in our daily walk with God.  Phyllis Linton – Deaconess speaker at our PW service, Janice Barr who shared the amazing story of her daughter Charlene and family transforming lives in Uganda and Guatemala, and Caroline Simpson from Christian Aid, to name a few.   We have also enjoyed some fun nights for example the make-up demonstration by Paige of Anderson’s chemist and the Getting to Know you evening in October, which afforded the opportunity for everyone to learn more about each other.  Our day away in May was one of the highlights as a 52 seater coach full of Strean folk headed off to the Flower Festival in Templepatrick Presbyterian, retail therapy in Ballymena and a lovely meal out

Financially we have been able to continue to meet our commitments to the Missionary projects in Church house as well as being able to support other independent Mission ventures.  The donations to the Soup lunch on 8th February 2015 were the highest they have been for a few years and the shoe box appeal, which we co-ordinate with the support of the whole church, was bigger than ever; a total of 125 shoeboxes were filled and £312.50 was donated to cover the cost of transportation.

All ladies of the congregation and their friends are very welcome to attend any events or meetings that the PW organise.
