Christian Women’s Fellowship (CWF)

Murray Bridge Christian Women’s Fellowship.

Our ladies meet on the 1st Tuesday of each month at 1.30pm at the Church (except January).

Our desire is to learn more about –
God’s Word by being willing to prepare and share a message on the theme for the year;
God’s Work which is being carried out, in Australia and overseas, in obedience to Christ’s command;
To pray for the ministries to which our offerings are sent as well as for our local Church family;
To enjoy fellowship over afternoon tea.

Our prayer is that these times will build us up in our love and knowledge of the Lord Jesus
and so better equip us to serve Him here and wherever He places us.

Coming events:

Tuesday September 2nd 2014 at 1.00 pm.
We will be meeting at the church at 1pm for a brief meeting, followed by visiting Resthaven to present a programme there. For more information contact Corinne Hampel on 0457 808 076 or 08 8532 3701

CENTENARY CELEBRATIONS OF THE CWF August 2014

"Give thanks" was the theme for the day

“Give thanks” was the theme for the day

On Tuesday August 12th 2014 a large gathering of ladies came together in the Murray Bridge Church of Christ to celebrate the centenary of the Christian Women’s Fellowship (CWF) in the church. The theme for the special day was “Give Thanks”. About 80 ladies attended from all over the state and from other churches in Murray Bridge. Quite a few apologies were later read out, all of them disappointed not to have made it for the day.

Pastor Grant Spangenberg gave a few opening comments and welcomed all present. He then gave thanks for the lunch which had been prepared. After the lunch the ladies moved to the worship centre for the formal part of the day. Current leader of the CWF Corinne Hampel welcomed all present. There followed a series of speakers who reminisced on times past. These included Rae Thompson, Nancy Coleman, Ruth Telfer and Muriel Sumner.

Illustrated talks were also given by guest speakers Karen Bowden speaking about the Bright Solutions programme assisting Christian ladies in Vietnam and Ros Stafford-Green speaking about midwifery training in Sudan. The celebrations ended with the singing of several hymns and in prayer, followed by Nancy Coleman cutting the celebratory cake.

Below are some photos of some of those present. You can see more photos taken on the day by clicking here.
