Look around and what do you see?
Are there plenty of women next to thee?
Do they encourage and inspire you?
What a pity there are so few.
Who guide and nurture, shape and lead.
Don’t you think this is something we need?
Meanwhile media tells the stories
That have not shown the Church’s glories.
Numbers in the Church are falling
So let’s appeal to women’s calling.
Interfaith study, friends and fun –
It’s OK, you don’t have to be a nun!
The Fellowship will provide
Women with the skills to guide.
And so our important vision
Is to find support to help us with this mission.
Mentoring, finance or prayer
We’d really appreciate your help to get us there!
So donate what you can to the Fellowship Program
Because the future waits for no man!
