The main aim of the conference is to enthuse, envision and equip women from across the Presbyterian Church in Ireland to return to their home congregations and women’s ministry groups to be His disciples and to make disciples.
Pauline Kennedy, PCI’s Women's Ministry & PW Development Officer explained the importance of the morning, “As autumn and the new church year gets underway, it is often a good time to refocus our thoughts and join together with others for fellowship and worship.
"With this in mind, Alive Women’s Conference is an opportunity for women of all ages and backgrounds to hear from our guest speaker, Dr. Cindy Bennett Brown, speak on Ephesians 2 and what it means to be spiritually alive and how, because of God’s loving mercy and grace, we can grow into the women Christ wants us to be.
“We are excited to have Cindy speak, as she is a gifted Bible teacher. We are eager to have her come and teach from God’s Word to help us to serve Him better, wherever He has placed us.
“Being an ‘Everyday Disciple’ is also very much the focus for the Church this year, with the Moderator choosing it as the theme for his moderatorial year, so we are enthusiastic to further enable women to be a part of this,” she said.
During the morning, there will be two Bible teaching sessions, worship, discussion, as well as refreshments, allowing those gathered the opportunity to meet up with friends as well make new ones. Praise will also be a key feature of the conference, with Rev. Karen Campbell, minister of Kilbride Presbyterian leading it.
