Women of Destiny is the name given to Liberty Churchu2019s unique annual event for women. First started in 2010 as an in-house event for 50 women, now nine years later this event attracts between 350 and 500 women each year from all denominations and from both within and outside the Auckland region.

Women are encouraged to engage with God through six or seven creative, reflective spaces. Each space specifically and purposefully supports the overarching theme. People can come at any time over the weekend, with some spending up to six hours engaged with God, being ministered to and enjoying Godu2019s presence. A prophetic team is always on hand for those who want a word of encouragement, with the team ministering one-on-one to give more than 350 prophetic words each year.

Taking literally hundreds of hours to plan and set up, and with up to 80 people involved, you might ask why they do this? Quite simply they have a desire to reveal God as the good Father he is and to provide an opportunity for women to connect with him heart to heart.  Along with this they love seeing womenu2019s lives transformed, which the testimonies received speak of again and again.

The latest event, held August 2018, was themed around u2018Oh! the Places Youu2019ll Gou2019.  Each space was decorated according to a different book/film with a Christian theme attached. This year the adventure began in u2018Narniau2019, with women entering through a wardrobe into a summer scene, with winter behind them. u2018Alice Through the Looking Glassu2019 spoke of reigning in life, while u2018Oh, the Places Youu2019ll Gou2019 dealt with having dreams restored. u2018The Ordinary Princessu2019 was about contentment, u2018Winnie the Poohu2019 focused on the sweetness of Godu2019s thoughts toward us, and u2018Moanau2019 spoke of courage for the journey.
