Women’s Ministry

Women’s ministry is a grass roots ministry, where women love, serve and teach each other in a variety of ways. Women at OEC meet one-to-one to read the Bible with other women; they gather weekly in Growth Groups to study the Bible together and encourage one another; they provide meals and other practical care when the need arises; they aim to speak the truth in love; to teach and train younger women, and to share the good news of Jesus Christ.

If you would like to be involved in ministry to women at OEC, then talk to a Congregational Women’s Leader or email suellen@oechurch.org.au.

Congregational Women’s Leaders

The role of our Congregational Women’s Leaders is to support this ministry in their congregation through prayer, modelling and actively encouraging women to grow as disciples of Jesus. Women’s Growth Group Coordinators assist women to find a Growth Group they can be a part of and support the leaders of our women’s groups. The Women’s Ministry Team also supports the grass roots ministry by encouraging women’s involvement in reading the Bible, prayer, gospel living and kingdom growth. One of the ways this happens is by planning a program of whole-church women’s events each year.

Below are the current Congregational Women’s Leaders for each service at OEC, including those also involved in the Women’s Ministry Team.

Women’s Ministry Bookclub

Our bookclub is a flexible way to read Christian books alongside other women.  There are four books selected for the year from different genres. We are reading a book on practical Christian living; a biography; a book of theology; a book of the Bible; a book on evangelism; a work of fiction, and a book around an area of ministry.  Women are invited to read one or more books and, if they choose to, participate in a discussion group at the end of the reading period the book is being advertised.
