“Arise and Shine” (Isaiah 60 : 1)
The Women’s Fellowship with its motto “Arise and Shine” (Isaiah 60 : 1 ) is a strong organisation in our church which works towards the empowerment of women. Membership is open to all women of the church. An annual general meeting is held at the beginning of the year and office bearers are elected. Various activities are organized under the guidance of the Vicar, Kochamma and the Parish committee.
Meetings are held on every second and fourth Friday of the month at the church hall after the church service to study the Bible, plan service activities and special projects that reach out to the community.
Every year the first Friday service in March is observed as Women’s day, where women take active participation in the service. Funds: Funds raised through food sales and least coin collection are used for medical and marriage support, housing help, support women missionary workers, educational support and to help the poor and the needy.
Annual Harvest Festival/Annual Get Together
Members whole heartedly give in their strong support and contribution during the harvest festival of the Parish and they actively participate in the annual get together and display their creativity through skits, songs and dances.
A yearly magazine, “Snehitha” publishes articles on family, health, women’s problems, privileges and duties, Christian values, testimonies and cookery recipes.
Most of the Women’s Fellowship members are subscribers of the “Kudumba Priyavadini”, a Women’s Fellowship publication from the Madhya Kerala Diocese.
Fasting prayers bring the members together on Saturday mornings. Also chain prayers are held by the Women’s Fellowship members according to the requests received, which is fruitful and effective.
The UAE women’s conference ,in co-ordiation with CSI Parishes across UAE, is a great way to meet other Christian women,building lasting friendship and growing in Christ.
