Celebrating 10 years of GROWing in 2020
The Story of GROW’s Impact on One Church
“As I look back at the time since the GROW last year, I can see how the Lord has indeed grown our fellowship, our connection to one another and most importantly our love and knowledge of our precious Lord. I’d have to say your conference has indeed achieved its purpose in growing godly women.” Tracey Hutley, Arundel Presbyterian Church
Over 40 women from Arundel Presbyterian Church, from late teens through to senior members, were encouraged at GROW 2019.
Several weeks later they held a…
‘Keep Growing Night’ to share what they’d learnt from 2 Timothy during GROW 2019. Several women spoke about how those lessons had impacted their love for Jesus.
Later in the year they held a ‘Keep Growing Book Discussion’ on two books from the bookstall at GROW (‘Suffering Well’ & ‘Plugged In’).
How wonderful to see the way God is using GROW to grow women and churches!
GROW Loves Partnering with Churches Year After Year
“We like sending women of all ages to GROW as it gives them an opportunity to enjoy fellowship in the Lord together whilst growing around God’s word.” (Heather Meadows, Grow Team Central Church Ipswich.)

Grow Purpose Statement
Our prayerful desire is that the GROW conference will strengthen local churches as they grow and reach the lost through:
- Gathering women from across many QLD churches face to face, under Christ-centred expositional preaching,
- Encouraging each woman, from the not-yet believer to the mature believer, to grow up into Christ, trusting in His death and resurrection and joyfully pressing on towards her heavenly prize in Him,
- Modelling the living out of eternal doctrines in all relationships, and equipping women to encourage others to grow up into Christ too.
(Col 2:6-7, Phil 3:14, Titus 2:1-5, Eph 4:1-16).
The GROW 2019 day is divided into three sessions (note times may change before the day):
Arrival and Registration – from 8:00am
Session 1 – 9:00 – 10:45am
Morning Tea – 10:45 – 11:30am
Session 2 – 11:30am – 1:00pm
Lunch – 1:00 – 2:00pm
Session 3 – 2:00 – 3:30pm
Finish – 3:30pm (bookstall remains open for 30minutes)
In each session we will hear a talk from the Bible (approx 40mins). You will have a booklet (hard copy or PDF) which you are welcome to use to take notes.
In each session we will also respond to God’s Word in song and prayer together. Note that we will pray together as a big group – be assured you will not be asked to pray or answer questions aloud.
There will also be interest spots and interviews from a variety of women throughout the programme for your encouragement.
We want to make sure that you will have a good period of time for morning tea and lunch. These are a great time to rest, chat to others and explore our bookstall.
Grow is committed to strengthening and supporting local churches. If your church leaders have any questions or suggestions as to how we can partner with you more effectively, please email Natalie Newell (Church Liaison) – firstname.lastname@example.org
