But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 40:31

Wesleyan Women exist to encourage and empower women to make a difference in their church and community for the glory of God.

Our Core Values to achieve our Purpose are:

  • Evangelism – leading our family, friends and neighbours to Christ.
  • Discipleship– Encouraging study of God’s Word; teaching women to follow Christ and be built up in their faith.
  • Fellowship– building healthy, caring relationships among women in the local church.
  • Ministry and Service– encouraging women to develop their gifts and talents, using them for service and ministry to build up the Church and meet the needs of others.
  • Giving– supporting missions and projects, abroad and at home.

Project Boomerang exists to support the travel of women to and from mission fields supported by the Australian Wesleyan Methodist Church for the purpose of Conference events.  Project Boomerang also exists to support women from these mission fields to travel to their own National Women’s Conference, who otherwise would not be able to attend.  The application of Project Boomerang is at the initiation and discretion of the Australian Wesleyan Women National Ministry Team.

Donations to Project Boomerang can be made through the National Wesleyan Women’s Treasurer, Mrs Heather McLauchlan.


I wrote the attached Easter Devotion many years ago (early 90s) when we were living in Hawker, South Australia.

The context for the devotion being written was that we had a Women’s Fellowship group (mostly older women) who met monthly. Each meeting began with a devotion, but for Easter we always had a special devotion as our main program for the day. This devotion was written for this.

The Devotion is called “A Cloud of Witnesses.” It has 10 voices of women who met Jesus, plus a narrator – but people could read more than one part. Some of the parts are longer than others – so a less confident reader could read a shorter passage. It’s best if people have copies of the devotion so they can practice reading before the day.
