Newcastle hosts celebration events

Kristen Hartnett speaks to the ladies about Moneycare's services.

More than 130 women gathered for fellowship and worship over two celebration events in Newcastle on 7 and 9 March. The women were also focused on raising funds for the Women’s Ministries Territorial Project for the year – The Salvation Army’s Safe House for Trafficked Persons in Sydney, and assisting four young women from Papua New Guinea to come to the Salvos Discipleship School over the next two years.

“We had special guests to lead worship and to speak on Salvation Army services, so there is always a spiritual and educational theme,” said Major Beatrice Kay, Salvos Women Coordinator, who organised the events. Captains Adam and Megan Couchman led the heartfelt praise and worship. Kristen Hartnett, Moneycare Area Manager and financial counsellor, was guest speaker. She led the ladies in a devotion and spoke about her role and the lives that are impacted by Moneycare’s services. Joyce Koiari, one of the students from Papua New Guinea currently studying at the Salvos Discipleship School, shared her testimony and how being at the school is changing her life and approach to ministry.

“It was a time of encouragement, celebration and refreshing for everyone,” said Major Kay. “The ladies look forward to these events every year. We are also delighted with over $1000 that was raised for the territorial project.”
