The South Sea Evangelical Church (SSEC) regional womens convention opens today in Noro, Western province.
Honiara, Central and Western region of the SSEC church are hosting this year’s regional seminar.
More than 300 women from Western, Choiseul, Malaita, Guadalcanal and Honiara are attending the regional convention meeting which aims to bring women from different regions together to share and mentor.
Moses Omearo SSEC church association elder told the Solomon Star yesterday that the convention will run for a week which will end on June 29.
“This convention aims to help women understand each other and deal with church issues.
“During the convention women will go through a lot of important studies and training to help them grow spiritually in Church and God,” Mr Omearo said.
He said women are playing an important role in the societies and church therefore the church has organised this convention to allow the women share with each other the challenges being faced in church.
“This convention is to bring together the women from different islands to share their challenges and learn from each other.
“And we hope after the convention they can return and share with other women in their communities what they have learnt.”
