Ruth Women of Power and Praise (RWOPP)
The ladies’ department, known as Ruth’s Women of Power and Praise (RWOPP) operates for the spiritual benefit of women. Through prayer and working together, we serve many areas in the church including supporting mothers, families and seniors. There is a vibrant social calendar with various trips, barbecues, quiz nights etc organised.
One of the highlights of our calendar is the annual prayer breakfast. It is a large gathering of women that seeks to empower, encourage, celebrate and give God thanks for us. We pray together and bless one another, and over the years we have celebrated some awesome times. Sisters from various denominations and some with no faith at all are inspired and encouraged to continue or start their relationship with God.
These women are family to me. It's always nice to meet up and fellowship together whether that's during a day out or Women's Breakfast.

Mrs Olga Page
Mrs Olga Page is the Assistant Leader to the Ladies Department Ruth Women of Power and Praise (RWOPP)
Mrs Page visited the church on Sunday 31st December 2006 attending the New Year’s Eve Service The church was packed but she was escorted to the front by Miss Merna Bonnick the then usher.
She continued to visit regularly until she decided to give her life to the Lord and got baptised on Saturday the 25th of September 2010.
Her role as an Assistant Leader is to help organise events and also assist with The Ladies Sunday Service with the help of the Leader. The role is challenging but very encouraging. She loves singing and is also a member of the choir. Her main desire is to continue to walk with the Lord study His words. She loves her church family and would never want to be anywhere else.
