We passionately believe that God anoints his children regardless of gender so that each one of us can be filled with his Spirit and exercise the gifting and ministry to which he calls us.


Nadine Parkinson heads up our Women’s Ministry. We gather women together in various settings to encourage and strengthen them in their unique callings.

We have an Oversight Group that seeks to support women leading churches, in whatever denomination they belong. In addition, there is an ordained representative for women in leadership in each of the six Leadership Network regions. Please contact Nadine Parkinson for further information: nadine.parkinson@new-wine.org


Women’s Days

Our annual Women’s Days (see Events) are typically run in a northern and southern location and we encourage women to bring friends and family for a time of worship, teaching and prayer ministry. The speakers seek to inspire women to grow in their relationship with God and have confidence in how he might work in and through them in their homes, communities and work places.

We also encourage local churches to host regional women's days (see Local Events). To find out about advertising a day you are organising please email info@new-wine.org

Women and Leadership

In addition to the national and regional leadership conferences, every two years we host a residential conference for women whose lives are wrapped up in leadership in one way or another: women leading churches, and in training to lead in churches; women whose sphere of influence is in their work place; women leading alongside their husbands in churches; women leading ministries in churches and/or community groups. The conference is an opportunity for spiritual refreshment and strengthening for those who come, with opportunities to address issues specific to different contexts. Nadine Parkinson hosts these events with a team of women from different walks of life. The next event is 15-17 October 2020 (see Events).

Ordained Women

We run occasional events for women who are leading churches, in any denomination, to come and learn with a group of women experienced at leading in different contexts. The days are a mix of Plenary Sessions, Q&A, and Round Table discussions on a range of subjects, with worship and ministry. The next event is on Thursday 7 November 2019 in Central London (see Events).


Talks from all our previous events are available for free on Soundcloud and iTunes.
