Women at Ridley

Ridley College is inspiring the next generation of women in academia. Women at Ridley have the opportunity to participate in all aspects of college life. There are also a range of opportunities to network and learn.

This annual conference focuses on the development of evangelical women in academia as theological students, lecturers or tutors, women preparing for ministry, or as graduates in the workplace and community.

The Women’s Writing Group is open to any Christian women who are students, graduates or lecturers, committed to improving their writing skills with the goal of publication in popular or academic forums.

Women’s Preaching Network
The Women’s Preaching Network has two aims:

  1.  To identify, train, support, and provide preaching opportunities for women in Melbourne.
  2. To encourage, extend, and resource female preachers in Melbourne.

We hope that, over time, the network will provide women preachers with role-modelling, opportunities, education, training and resources, collegiality and encouragement.
