New NZMWF President and National Executive 2023 to 2025

Tui Salevoa —

NZ Methodist Women’s Fellowship gathered in person for their biennial Convention at the Sudima Hotel, Auckland from 12 to 15 October 2023. Along with business talk, the weekend was full of laughter, dancing, and fellowship as 96 members celebrated having the first opportunity since Covid-19 to meet in person. Tuituivao (Tui) S Salevao,ex NZMWF President 2021 to 2023 reports on the event.

In my October article I said it was the last time you would hear from me, but it felt unjust to get President Lesieli Pope to complete an article just days after taking over the helm.

Convention was held at Sudima Hotel and at the final church service on Sunday at Panmure Methodist Church - where I worship - we commissioned our new President and her National Executive. Our theme for the weekend was Revive and Unite – Go bear Fruits, fruits that will last John 15 vs 16.

My team had an awesome time; perhaps it was because it was our last official weekend in the roles. We had great fun as we celebrated the change and friendship that has evolved since we came together two years ago. We started as friends and now consider ourselves a sisterhood that we will cherish for life.

NZMWF is an awesome organisation with passionate members that love to help people in need. We wish President Lesieli Pope all the best in her two-year term.

For information on the work the NZMWF do, check our page on the MCNZ website or ask any women in your church who are members to explain what they do.

Next month our new National Executive will report on the work they are planning and the flavour they will bring to their roles.
