Clergy Women United

Clergy Women United is an active and growing network of licensed and ordained women pastors, ministers and seminarians from diverse ethnic, denominational and economic backgrounds in the Greater Boston community. Led by a team of seasoned women ministers, CWU offers women clergy deep understanding, genuine friendships and practical support.

CWU grew out of the need for connections, support and training of women clergy.

CWU members gather every other month to encourage each other and become better equipped for effective ministry and connect monthly via the “Sisters in Agreement” prayer call.  By developing authentic relationships with other women clergy, members hold each other accountable as they mutually pursue soul-care and spiritual growth.  CWU offers shared worship, teaching and fellowship; practical training in leadership skills; an annual weekend getaway, and opportunities to unite voices through prayer and hands in service to Boston’s communities.

Opportunities to Connect

CWU members gather bimonthly for community building, networking and learning activities. Stay tune for the 2017 gathering dates.

Our monthly “Sisters in Agreement” prayer call is held the last Thursday of each month at 9:00p.m.
