I.P.C Women’s Fellowship was formed on November 13, 1991 at a combined fellowship meeting of the minister’s council, Region council and representatives of the sisters from participating churches. Sisters Annamma Kurian and Annamma George were assigned as coordinators to organize the fellowship, which held its first meeting at the IPC auditorium, Queens Village, on November 30, 1991. This fellowship is a part of the IPC ER and functions under the guidance of the council. The officials of the fellowship consist of a president, vice president, secretary, treasurer and youth coordinator. This organization conducted many programs that were catered for women and young women. Programs include fellowship meetings, fasting prayers, tract distributions, nursing home visits, seminars and conventions.
The main goals of this fellowship were to promote spiritual growth and to maintain unity among the sisters of the member churches of IPC ER. Contributions from participating churches was the main source of income, through which were able to conduct many programs. We also send funds to mission work in India through IPC SodariSamajam in Kumbanadu, Kerala.
