About the Conference

Popular with women of all ages, the WfM Women’s Conference is a fantastic opportunity to gather together to explore a topic of interest through a range of speakers who have been involved in mission work here in Scotland and around the world. 

Through various speakers, we learn first-hand about the real experiences and challenges that people are facing as they seek to share the gospel in a wide range of cultures and contexts around the world. We are so often encouraged as we hear incredible stories of God’s working in people’s lives. As we gain insight, we discover new ways to actively support and pray for mission and how to apply what we learn in the context of our own lives.
