ANGLICAN WOMEN'S FELLOWSHIP
WCF meets every third Sunday of the
month for a meeting dedicated to praying and reading the Bible.
Members take turns to prepare verses and lead in fellowship.
Members with prayer needs are also prayed for. Members who are
bereaved are visited at home. WCF has discussed the possibility
of asking the Rector of the Parish to assist them in spiritual
matters, e.g. developing a closer bond with God through prayer
as well as how to lead the reading and interpretation of
scripture. WCF at St Faith’s visits other Anglican Parishes in
the Durban area during the year, for example St Barnabas,
Lamont, St Phillips, Prince of Peace, Ekuvukeni and St
Augustine’s. When new members are admitted to be organisation,
other parishes in Durban and surrounds are invited to the
Members attend the monthly women’s meeting during the first
Sunday of each month, so as to be part of the “ladies community”
of the Parish. In instances where other organisation in the
parish are doing joint projects, e.g. – Father’s Day, cake sale
during Palm Sunday, cluster for MU, Sunday School parties, etc,
members are asked to be part of the activities to represent the
organisation. WCF is also active in welcoming new members to the
parish (a day when leaders of organisation introduce their
activities in new members) as well as giving hampers to senior
citizens and to needy families at Christmas time.
Members make pledges and follow up with payments. Members also
do voluntary work in the church, for example, spring-cleaning
the kitchen once a year.
