In Christ, women have a security that is beyond our comprehension yet even we forget who we really are and all we have in him and all we are called to be. This year at our conventions we are going to dig into the wonderful letter of Ephesians and rediscover our identity in Christ and what that means for us as we live in a culture that is fractured and hurting. We will have a range of seminars for you to choose from to help us engage with our culture, to live out our lives for Christ, stand firm in the storms of life and equip us to read the Bible with others.
Get the date in your diary and invite others. Bring a group from your church and let us encourage each other to be who we really are!

Secure in Singleness
Singleness can come with many pressures but is often ignored or feared in our churches. Is it possible to be single and not experience loneliness? Anne has worked through many issues regarding sexuality and singleness and now works part-time for Living Out.
Secure in the Middle of the Pressures of Life
Life brings various struggles through its different stages: supporting children, caring for elderly parents, children leaving home, bereavement, juggling responsibilities, or facing loneliness and isolation wondering where God is in it all. Author and speaker Catherine Campbell has learned what it means to walk with Christ in the darkest of times.
Secure in a Gender Confused World
It used to be so simple, we all understood what gender was. Now whether we like it or not our traditional view is being challenged. But what is gender? How does it relate to our identity in Christ and understanding of God’s purposes? How does a clear understanding of gender equip us to speak of Christ to a gender-confused world?
We are strengthened in Christ by reading his word. So what better thing can we do than read it with someone else? Ruth is the student worker at Holy Trinity Platt and reads the Bible one to one with many women. She will show us how we can read the book of Ephesians with someone else to help one another stand secure in Christ.
