Perth Women's Convention

600 women from more than 100 churches gathered in the Swan Valley near Perth last month for the 8th Annual Perth Women's Convention. PWC is part of the Christian Conventions of WA - a non-denominational Christian grouping seeking to encourage the churches here in Perth by providing opportunities to gather and hear some great teaching from the Bible. This year Jenny Salt came across from Sydney to lead some studies on 1 Peter - thinking again about what it means to have a foot in 2 worlds and encouraging us to live godly lives in the face of persecution and hardship. Helene Berhane also talked of her time of imprisonment in Eritrea for her Christian faith.

Jenny's talks will be put on the CCOWA website soon so keep an eye on that if you'd like to download and hear them. They can be found at

This is an annual event that is a great encouragement to women from many different churches. It was great that many women from Presbyterian Churches here in Perth were able to get along and benefit from the teaching, food and fellowship!

Look out for next year's event if you are in Perth on August 4th, 2012 - it will be well worth coming along and exploring what God says about contentment!
