Women's Guild

 

The Women’s Guild is a fellowship of all women of the church who are twenty-one (21) years and above. The guilds aim at dedicating their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ and to the service of His kingdom. It promises to seek God’s guidance everyday through prayers and bible reading; attend church regularly and help in the maintenance of women’s work in the church through prayers, service and Christian giving.

Amongst others, the objectives of the Women’s Guild include to build a strong relationship amongst members; to build a woman who will be a great support in the home; to build spiritual structures to enhance the quality of the spiritual life of an average woman; to build an organization that runs on set biblical standards and to build a corporate image which distinguishes the Yaba Parish Woman from others.

For ease of administration, the Yaba Parish Women’s Guild is divided into twelve houses - Sarah, Hannah, Elizabeth, Mary Magdalene, Esther, Deborah, Dorcas, Ruth, Priscilla, Eunice, Lydia and Mary Slessor with their respective house leaders.

The Yaba Parish Women’s Guild empowers their needy members through the Welfare Trust Foundation - a Non Governmental Organization, it formed and registered. Although fully owned by the Women’s Guild, it is a distinct body from the former and membership is through registration.
