Back in 2001, the Mayor of Toowoomba at that time was Di Thorley. Di was invited to speak at a Christian women’s event where she challenged the women who attended that they do great things inside their church, but why don’t they get out and do something for the young people of Toowoomba. With this challenge we started running camps for teen girls. Out of this Girls Getaway was birthed, taking girls from our local highschools away for a weekend of fun and love. Our eyes were opened to the need in our city and just how broken so many lives were. We realised that as churches we needed to work together to impact our city of Toowoomba, that it takes a citywide church to win a city wide battle. In 2005 City Women began with just 6 ministries that were in some way reaching out to women & girls. Today we have 20 projects/ministries, with over 200 volunteers from many different churches, working together to bring healing, hope & redemption to so many in our city.
City Women and its different organisations thrive on volunteer support. There are many volunteer positions available that provide a hands-on experience in bringing lasting transformation in the lives of girls and women and to the city at large.
