The ideal basic unit of society is the home and family, where women play a vital and definitive role. Furthermore, as natural providers of hope, women play an important part in shaping society. Therefore any fellowship of women in which Christian influence is exerted and practical help given benefits not only the individual and the family, but also the nation. Women's Ministries provide a programme of meetings and other activities based on the fourfold aim of the Army's international women's organisation, the Home League, which was inaugurated in 1907. The aims are worship, education, fellowship and service.
The mission of Women's Ministries is to:
- bring women into a knowledge of Jesus Christ
- encourage their full potential in influencing family, friends and community
- equip them for growth in personal understanding and life skills
- address issues which affect women and their families in the world
Indeed, the motto of the Home League is: ‘I will live a pure life in my house ...' (Psalm 101:2b, GNB)
