We will have a time of worship, like in all our conference-sessions, and a Bible study from Amanda Jackson (UK), the Director of the Women’s Commission of the World Evangelical Alliance, which will be discussed in small groups at the tables. A practical message from Pastor Ruth Hasselgren (Sweden) about leadership will follow and will lead us into prayer for eachother.
In each session on Thursday and Friday there will be always a time of sharing from the nations, in which area ladies, who are participants, are bringing “Hope and Future” to their specific nation, which we call “Seeds of Hope”.
And not to forget: We will also have one or two panels about actual topics.
In the afternoon we will have two times of 60-minutes-workshops, 4 to 5 parallel, with topics like Marriage, Single-Living, Mentoring, Gender Mainstreaming, Women in Ministry, Christians and PR etc.
On Thursday evening we will receive information about the situation of women in Europe and worldwide, which will lead us into prayer. Elke Werner, Board Member of the International Lausanne Movement (Germany) will motivate us for this. Prepared Prayer Stations will provide inspiration of areas to pray for.

We will have a Bible-Study with Lara Buchanan from Ravi Zacharias Ministry (UK) – which will be followed by a group-discussion.
Elke Werner will lead us in a time of reflection about the future of the “Women in Leadership” Network.

European Network-Representatives will get the possibility to present their network, in which they are involved, to other interested participants of our conference: the EXPO.
A Prayer Walk with Gordana Savic through a part of Belgrade will be offered and those who want to do so, can do Sightseeing and/or Shopping on their own.
Friday evening we will celebrate 25 years of “Hope for Europe – Women in Leadership”!
