Women's Ministry

Immanuel women’s Ministry exists to glorify God by serving the women and the church body through our commitment to God’s Word and to one another.

Ministry goals flow from the Immanuel Church Vision Statement and focuses on three areas:


To provide opportunities for women to read and study God’s Word with one another [2 Timothy 3:16-17; Titus 2:3-5]

Social Support: 

To help women find ways to connect/meet with others [Hebrews 10:25],  pray for one another [Ephesians 6:18]encourage one another in Christ [1 Thessalonians 5:11]build relationships and find safe spaces to get Biblically-sound support [Ecclesiastes 4:9-12]


To help women identify ways to serve in the church, volunteer in the community, minister to women who are hurting or lost, and be equipped to share the gospel in our homes and workplaces [1 Peter 3:15; 4:9-10]

What We Do:

  • Organize women’s Bible study groups that meet at the church or virtually.

  • Share resources helpful for practical Christian living

  • Facilitate activities and events to help build a caring, committed community

Pray Big: Learn to Pray Like an Apostle

Tuesday Evenings from 6:30-8:00 PM  | may | Zoom

Pray Big – Starts May 7th

So many of us struggle with prayer. Many books have been written on the subject and there’s a reason for that. Prayer comes hard to most of us, in most seasons. This short book by renowned Bible teacher Alistair Begg combines warmth, clarity, humour, and practicality as he examines Paul’s prayers for his friends in the church in Ephesus.

Paul clearly enjoyed prayer, and was excited about it. He expected his Father in heaven to hear what he said, and to act in other people’s lives accordingly. The truths that underpin and shape his prayers will motivate us to pray and set us an example.

So be inspired by the Apostle Paul to pray bigger and better prayers as we look to our heavenly Father to do more than all we ask or imagine!
