CWCI Safaris reach out and connect with women living in rural and remote places. Safari mission teams encourage believers and also share the gospel message with other people who don’t yet know Jesus. 

Each Safari has a team of two women (a Speaker and a Leader) who travel out to the locations. One of the team members may also be a musical soloist, who performs at the different events and locations of the mission trip. Safari Ministry is an exciting work, where CWCI sees many women encouraged in their Christian walk, and others challenged to live closer to God.

National Safaris usually involve the team flying to remote towns, properties and islands around Australia. CWCI Australia networks with other Christian organisations and individuals to provide a Pilot and light aircraft to transport the team. Road transport can also be used.

Regional Safaris are run by the individual Regions. The team travels by road, and often provide access to Christian books and resources for sale.

2021 – Celebrating 50 years of Safaris

This resource is available from Head Office. Please use it to promote Safari Ministry at your event. You may adapt this resource as needed, deleting or adding slides, music, audio, etc.

We deeply value the prayerful and financial support of our CWCI community over the past 50 years and as we continue reaching women in rural and remote Australia and sharing the love of Jesus and encouragement of God’s word with them.

How women have been touched by Safari Ministry

We really enjoyed singing to the guitar. It was very uplifting, and touched our hearts.

Absolutely amazing — the Speaker has a fantastic ability to speak right to the heart of the ladies.

A wonderful time of prayer and fellowship.

The Speaker was led by the Spirit in choosing the right Bible passage that we needed, and it spoke to our hearts.

The Safari was a great encouragement to me.

CWCI Safari are the only support we receive.
