More about the 2020 conference

It is all about uniting women

UnitingWomen 2020 will be held at Club Tropical Resort in Lee Point, Darwin. The entire program will be held at the resort, and participants are encouraged to stay on site if possible (yes, even locals!) to maximise the community experience.

The four day program is being shaped around the process that women in Arnhem Land use to turn spiky pandanus leaves into beautiful mats and baskets. Using the metaphor of the pandanus process, we will engage with our own journey towards unity with Christ and with each other.

We will grow into a community of girls and women from a range of ages and cultures, and our connections will deepen as we take part in workshops, join in worship, pray, lament, celebrate, listen to each others’ stories, and experience God together.

More detailed information about the program and workshops will be available in the new year.

Updates will come via email and social media, so make sure you have subscribed or liked so you don’t miss out!
