Women’s outreach conference will make history in Westminster

THE FOUNDER of a women’s outreach conference will make history later this month when her event is launched in Westminster’s Central Hall.

Westminster Women’s Outreach Conference, a dynamic, powerful and spirit-filled ministry, is the first women’s ministry launched at the venue in over 100 years.

Over the past five years, the ministry has put on conferences and covered topics on Forgiveness & Reconciliation with Richard Taylor, the father of south London schoolboy Damilola who was killed in 2000, Ejo Ubiribo, Tracy Ford, Doreen Lawrence, whose son Stephen was brutally killed in a 1993 knife attack.

Revd. Rose Hudson-Wilkin, Chaplain to Her Majesty the Queen and Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons, spoke about Women in Leadership. She also led the seminar that year.

The event leader Ollie McEwen said: “The seed of this ministry was first planted in 2009 through prayers and being open to the Holy Spirit’s guidance and leading.

“Firstly, we are creating a platform of nurture, encouragement, mentoring and blessings for all women, to explore and be encouraged in the challenges they face, through biblical and other topical issues, within the Church, family and community.

“Secondly, the ministry’s goal is to resource women to put into practice what they have learned at the Conferences, thereby enabling them to bring forth their identities and effectiveness within their Churches, families and communities.”

This year, our topic is Celebrating Women: Opening Doors and Smashing Glass Ceilings.

“It is so frustrating to try and get to the top of our careers or other challenges we face in life, and always get pushed back,” McEwen said. “Even if we pray or wait on God, the answer seems long in being responded to! With our line-up of speakers, namely, Revd Dr Kate Coleman, founding Director of Next Leadership, has 30 years of leadership experience in the Church, Charity and voluntary sectors. Kate is a popular speaker, lecturer, a strategic advisor who mentors, coaches and supports leaders and organisations locally, nationally and internationally.”

Our other speakers include Revd Jenny Impey, currently Chair of the District of the Methodist Church. Key to her ministerial formation was a time in South Africa in 1990 which shaped her passion for cross-cultural ministry and her love for ministry.

Minister Dana, a soloist, is a Bible teacher and scholar whose singing credits include Movie John Q starring Denzel Washington. He has appeared in numerous television commercials and is an author.

While Sue Monckton-Rickett is a certified accountant and project manager in International Banks based in London. She is also a counsellor working in private practice, a trainer in counselling and pastoral care and a retreat leader. Sue has been a speaker for Spring Harvest for over 15 years.
