Churchwide Gathering

2018 Churchwide Gathering Logo

Presbyterian Women’s next Churchwide Gathering will be held August 2–5, 2018 in Louisville, Kentucky! Won’t you join us?

“Arise, shine, your light has come!” (based on Isaiah 60:1) is the theme for the Gathering. Held every three years, PW’s Churchwide Gathering is an event that celebrates and can deepen your engagement in all that Presbyterian Women does. Participants enjoy workshops, tours, forums, resource gathering (and shopping!), plenary sessions with inspiring speakers, worship and more. PW’s triennial Business Meeting also takes place during the Churchwide Gathering, where budget, leadership and programmatic emphases for the next triennium are decided.


Planning for 2018 Churchwide Gathering is under way, so stay tuned for the Gathering speakers, program highlights, opportunities for connection and renewal, and so much more! You won’t miss a single detail if you sign up for Gathering emails (one a month!) with reflections, free downloads, fun ideas and more! Sign up for emails.

Even though the Gathering is more than a year away, you can start promoting, planning and participating. Consider writing a Gathering theme hymn, creating or donating an item to the silent auction (with all proceeds going to the Mission Pledge, PW’s annual fund).

Download free puzzles to publicize and raise excitement for the Gathering. The Gathering emails also include history trivia (with the answers scattered as fun facts throughout this website!), a number of PW-themed puzzles are available!
