Beauty for Ashes

We would love to extend an invitation to you, beautiful woman, to our annual Far North Queensland Women's Conference! Hosted by Pastor Marion Dodds, and the team at Harvest Church Innisfail – we are ready to pamper you, love you, feed you delicious food, drink coffee, laugh together, (possibly) cry together, and ultimately be strengthened and encouraged by the Holy Spirit – TOGETHER!

We have three incredible speakers who will challenge and inspire you. Our worship and creative team is preparing to minister to you, with an incredible sound directly from heaven. Not to mention all the other things we have planned that you will just have to wait and experience for yourself (and make sure you bring other women with you too!)

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,
To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them
beauty for ashes,
oil of joy for mourning,
garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called
trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord,
that He may be glorified.”
– Isaiah 61
