Welcome to the Women's Ministries Victoria Website.  We want you to be encouraged and challenged (in a good way) by what you read and see on this site.  Explore and be involved!

Women's Ministries is one part of the total ministry of the local Church, your Church.   The local Church is God's idea, and Paul's letter to the church in Rome so many years ago gives us a definition of what it looks like even today.  It's found in Romans 12: 3-5:  'For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.  For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.' 

Women's Ministries does not stand on its own, or operate under its own authority.  It is not meant to be exclusive.  It is one part of the whole, one part of the life and ministry of the Body of Christ, the Church. 

We exist to encourage the nurture, discipleship and service of the women of the PCV.
Our purpose is:
  • To remind that all of life is ministry (service) as followers of God.     Matthew 5
  • To disciple women though the application of Scripture to life.     Titus 2
  • To nurture women in the Victorian Presbyterian Church to embrace the principles of Biblical Womanhood.    Titus 1 and 2 Timothy
  • To model and teach Complementarianism, men and women working together for the Kingdom, distinctively, to the Glory of God.   Genesis 2
Our committee members are:

Mairi Girgis (convenor), Donvale Presbyterian Church

Anne Harvey, Croydon Hills Presbyterian Church

Jeanette McHardy, Essedon Presbyterian Church

Deborah Palmer, South Yarra Presbyterian Church

Adele Withers, Rochester Presbyterian Church

Josephine Mehanni, Cheltenham Presbyterian Church

HISTORY

WMV was set up by the Christian Education and Nurture Committee (CENC) under the Victorian Assembly following the first WMPCA (Women's Ministries in the Presbyterian Church of Australia) Flourish Conference in 2009. The CENC sought to actively encourage the women in our state, investing resources to seeing them built up. Over the past few years this ministry has started to take shape though it is still in the early stages of development and no doubt this vision will continue to transform and develop as God directs.
