Provincial Council Resolution
The Anglican Women’s Fellowship strives to follow the example of Christ who came into the world “in order that (we) may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10.
The AWF prayer says:
God our Father, you have called us to worship and serve you in your church.
We ask you to bless the members of the Anglican Women’s Fellowship.
Unite us in love, by the power of your Holy Spirit and
grant that we may serve you in the world.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.
At the 2012 Desmond Tutu International Peace Lecture (UWC), Mrs Graca Machel, a widely respected advocate of women and children’s rights made the following observation about the South African society: “With our staggeringly high rates of violence and abuse, of broken families ... we are ...a damaged society. Perhaps in celebrating our political settlement ... we have overlooked a core task; the hard, necessary job of fixing our human selves.” Although her focus was South Africa, the reality is that other Southern African countries share the same long history of brutality during colonisation and there are similarities in the way we deal with our common pain.

We need to remember that when one becomes a member of the AWF, they do not only belong to the organisation, but also to the body of Christ and the Church, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, one can proudly wear the badge, which reflects our motto: “United in Prayer, Service and Love”.
