About SNEWomen's Connection Team
Women of the Congregational Church have always been active in mission, both abroad and at home. In 1928 they came together to strengthen their outreach efforts and ground their work in prayer and scripture. The name of the organization and its structure have changed over time, but the purpose remains the same – to provide opportunities for women of faith to come together in worship, study and mission.
SNEWomen’s Connection Team is now a tri-state organization. Once organized around Women’s Fellowships in each congregation, that gathered regularly as Districts and once a year at a state wide event, SNEWomen’s Connection is now led by a team whose members come from across the tri-state area. The team is committed to planning two major events each year: a fall retreat experience and a spring gathering where all women of tri-state conference can come together for fellowship and worship, to share ideas and inspirations. Additionally, SNEWC is always committed to financially supporting some aspect of outreach – over the last few years by raising money for a cabin at Silver Lake, a school in Nairobi Kenya, an educational program for Roma children in the Balkans. Currently our fundraising efforts are in support of the Connecticut Conference’s Racial Justice Ministry.
From the days of our first president, Amy Ogden Welcher, to today and into tomorrow, Southern New England Women’s Connection come together to listen for the voice of our still speaking God and to support one another in responding to God’s call.
