Women Encouraging Women (WEW) | Christ Evangelical Reformed Church (CERC)

‘Men are from Mars, women are from Venus’ - sounds familiar?

The difference between men and women is something we have grown to observe since we were young. From communication styles, emotional needs, approaches to relationships, and many more to count.

In a perfect world, these differences could have helped and complemented each other. Instead of embracing and supporting one another, we've let those very differences become weapons, cause hurt and inflict pain.

Even in the closest relationships, it’s far from a bed of roses. Genesis 3:16 captures this complexity: "Your desire shall be contrary to your husband, but he shall rule over you." The Bible echoes the enduring tensions between two genders.

It’s worthwhile asking - why are things this way? Is this the way things are supposed to be?

This year at WEW, come unravel the truth about the intended design of man and woman and how we were meant to relate to each other from the very beginning.

See you there!

  • Women VS Men in Dating & Marriage
    Women VS Men in Dating & Marriage
    We all have different expectations of dating and marriage. Most if not all of us, imagine it as a fairytale of sweet romance, capable of overcoming any obstacles. However, reality often proves more challenging. Men struggle to lead women in godliness, often deferring to women's decisions. Women, impatient for godly leadership, sometimes take matters into their own hands. If this is the reality of life under God in our christian relationships today, instead of fairy tales, we find ourselves in a horror story of sinful rebellion against God's design. How can we navigate these complexities? Join us as we delve into what it means to embody God's design in our relationships today.
  • Women VS Men in Parenting
    Women VS Men in Parenting
    Parenting is God’s design in filling the earth with His image bearers, but it’s one of the hardest things you will ever do. In this parenting elective, we’ll be looking at the challenges and conflicts wives face with their husbands in raising children, and we will see, how it all starts with how we raise our children. If you're thinking about marriage or you're married with or without kids, this elective is for you - because parenting is so much bigger than just our own families - it's about the future generation.
  • Women VS Men in Ministry
    Women VS Men in Ministry
    There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." (Gal. 3.28) Hasn't the gospel made us all equal in Christ now? Aren't we all united to do the same gospel ministry? Our culture today has shifted our focus from accepting God's wisdom in His creation design to making everything a matter of rights / capacity. We can be very 'genderless' and rather performance-driven in our thinking as we approach ministry. But God's created differences are to enhance Christian unity in gospel ministry, rather than destroy it. So, how should women's unique role as helper inform the way we do ministry?
  • Women VS Men in Career and the Corporate World
    Women VS Men in Career and the Corporate World
    The Corporate world is certainly not for the faint of heart. Even in a highly competitive environment, women are told to be strong, independant and capable of overcoming any challenge as long as she puts her mind to it. Landing on the Dream job? Check. Dream team? Check. Dream husband? Check. Working Mom? Check. Work-life balance? Check. Put simply, she's an inspiring woman leader. Whereas the Bible shows us that from the beginning, the first woman was created in the image of God to be a HELPER to her husband, Adam. He is her leader, not the other way around. She was to help him in procreation and to have dominion over the rest of creation, filling the earth with God' s goodness and glory! For the average corporate woman, the origins of womanhood is bizarre. Does this mean that women were never meant for the Corporate World ? Can a Christian woman be a manager over a team of men if she's a helper by design? Is the ultimate career path motherhood? These questions are sensitive yet it's so crucial to get it right. Afterall, at some point, every woman has to choose to focus on her career or building a family. What will you choose?
  • How to Understand Men
    Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.
    Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.' It's always a challenge to understand each other from different genders. Join this elective as we delve into the intricacies of understanding men and women, in terms of attraction, communication, and relationships.
  • How to deal with daddy issues
    How to deal with daddy issues
    What are daddy issues and why do they affect us so significantly? Daddy issues go beyond personal struggles; they touch on leadership and authority. When our fathers fall short, the hurt and impact run deep. How should Christian women think about this matter? Ultimately, it all comes down to THE Daddy Issue – our relationship with God. Let’s delve deeper into this topic with other godly Christian women who have navigated similar challenges as you.
  • Women vs Men in Fashion
    Women vs Men in Fashion
    Fashion plays with colors, textures, shapes and art, all of which were made by God and can yield tremendous power in creating and playing with perceptions. It can manipulate, deceive and distract men (and women!) to very evil and very good ends. To live in ignorance is like wielding a powerful tool without understanding its potential to either tear down or build up. Ladies, you probably have to be more godly to yield the power of clothing for God-glorifying ends and not be distracted with yourselves!

Ministry Forum

Hear from ladies who have benefited from WEW in the past years!

Yvonne Yeoh, Working Adult

“I am thankful for how the faithful handling and teaching of God's Word by the women at WEW has brought so much encouragement to me, and I praise God for a body that continually strives to speak the truth in love till the day our faith becomes sight!”

Caren Liew

“I learnt a lot about God’s good design for women, what is true womanhood as designed by my sovereign creator, and had a renewed view of myself. I appreciate the beautiful truth of womanhood, interesting hot topics and practical application for my life. I am encouraged and I truly recommend WEW to all ladies!”

Lee Joo Hui, Working Adult

“I've attended WEW events in previous years and found them to be very edifying. WEW has compelled me to think through what it means to be a Christian woman, and how I can apply my knowledge in my service to Jesus and His church in the different roles that God has called me to be."

Elena Lo

“It was a great experience for me even though I'm a Christian mum for 30+ years. It helped me to reflect how to become a better Christ-like mum and wife.”

Charmaine Lee, Working Adult

“The overall experience was great. I met so many sisters in Christ who were eager to learn about God and his words. There were even elderly women who came to join us, which was very encouraging. The sessions were edifying as the older women shared their insights to how they have been molded and transformed by Christ to be godlier in their emotions and thoughts. It taught me that all of my being, even my emotions were created to glorify God because that’s how he’s made us for his purpose.”
