We are not called to live this life on our own.
Sistahood is about bringing the women and girls of LIFE together. Whether it’s for our two night events a year, or a mid-week Group, it’s about the generations coming together.
Together we are stronger; our influence is greater and our need for heart connection is met.
This year, we're joining together to look at how we can be living out this journey in the most passionate and God - filled way possible.
Let's make 2017 a year where we cheer each other on in our God - pursuits, support each other in our everyday ups and downs and are always looking to welcome one more to share this journey with us.

Throughout the year we meet as a collective of women for Sistahood Nights where we let all other distractions go and just have time with the girls. These nights focus on specific input and time in God's presence. They're great evenings to invite those who don't usually attend church.
Every night involves collectively doing something so that we can be Love in Action to our city. This year, we have prepared Sistahood Nights for all generations of women to gather together, where our stories which help define who we are, will set a platform for the way we shape our world.
REAL IN FRIENDSHIP
Sistas stick together. As women, we are blessed with the ability to inspire, strengthen and share our lives with each other in a very unique way.
This takes place through SISTAHOOD Bible Studies that take place every Wednesday night, 7.30pm at LIFE Melbourne. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending one of these studies. (There is a cost for these studies as it includes a devotion book to work through).
We also have a playgroup every Friday morning for Mums to bring their pre-schoolers along for a morning of Singing and Stories. This is a group for caregivers and pre-schoolers to come together and connect with each other. We meet every Friday at 10am at a location around Melbourne City. If the weather is good we’ll general meet at a park, otherwise at a kid friendly café. Please contact Sharon on email@example.com for more details.
LOVE IN ACTION
Love is a verb, and just as God lavishes His love on us, we in turn should be extravagant in loving other.
Whether it's cooking a meal for someone, visiting rest homes for the elderly, uniting our resources to help others in need or simply looking out for a friend, we are called to love not just with word, but also with actions and truth.
Every Sistahood event we bring something practical to help other Sistas who are in need in our community. The next Sistahood event is Monday October 12 at LIFE Melbourne. Your kindness and generosity goes beyond all boarders as we help change people's lives through showing the practical love of Jesus.
Thank you so much!
STRONG IN FAITH
Wholeheartedly in pursuit of our God, we will delve into the wellspring of God's Word with specific bible studies.
Regardless of what your day-to-day looks like, our Sistahood Study Groups will actively encourage and guide you into understanding God's Word, providing you with strong and relevant foundations to flourish as a modern-day woman.
Sistahood Bible Studies take place on a Wednesday night at LIFE, 62 Mark St, North Melbourne @7.30pm. (There is a cost for these studies as it includes a devotion book to work through). Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the next Bible Study.
