A year of Women’s Ministries in Sydney was recently launched at the annual United Night, held at Hills Adventist College.
With a theme of “Better Together”, more than 300 women came together to worship, all wearing white in support of the White Ribbon Campaign in the fight against domestic violence. Greater Sydney Conference Women’s Ministries director Beryl Landers shared her dream for Adventist women for 2017, while Avondale College of Higher Education professor Dr Brad Watson shared an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of domestic violence survivors in Papua New Guinea.
Australian Women’s Adventist Ministries Liaison Kym Piez was the keynote speaker.
“Kym spoke to every heart present,” said Ms Landers, “sharing her story and challenging us to rid ourselves of the things that hold us back from being all that God wants us to be.”
Other highlights included a generous donation to the HOPE STAYZ program and a challenge to sponsor a family, special music, and prayer.
“It was a beautiful gathering of the girls—with a few guys,” said Ms Landers. “Thank you to all who participated and supported our United Night.”
