Our mission is to see imperfect women bring Jesus into
the everyday.

We are The Well, a community for imperfect women to be encouraged and help each other bring Jesus into their everyday lives. In an age of constant cultural distraction, The Well aims to be a place of truth for modern day followers of Jesus.

Inspired by John 4 and the story of The Samaritan Woman, we desire for women to meet Jesus at the well for themselves – to truly understand who He is and what He has promised. We long to see every woman choose to follow Christ in the dailiness of their lives, and to experience how that decision redefines what it means to live well.

What Makes Us Different

  • We speak with a challenging, clear voice that stays away from Christianese.
  • We create a safe space to encourage collaborative environment.
  • We view young women as equal regardless of life stage.
  • We focus on heart transformation over behaviour modification.
  • We seek to redefine young women’s relationship with God and with each other.

Core Values



We focus on spiritual and personal growth alongside
relational health.



We value honesty with yourself, with God, and with each other.



We aim to turn faith into action through knowledge, understanding, and response to the promises of Jesus.

Statement of Faith

What We Believe

We believe in one God, maker of heaven and earth, eternally existent in three persons: the Father Almighty, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe the entire Bible comprising the Old and New Testament to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, and complete Word of God. We believe that the Bible is the final authority on all matters pertaining to faith in God and the basis for all Christian teaching.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in his eternal existence with the Father, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His triumphant ascension to the Father, and in His promised return in power and glory.

We believe that salvation is found through faith in Jesus Christ alone and in his substitutionary sacrifice to satisfy God’s demand for judgment of sin, providing justification for every repentant sinner.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, who enables the Christian to be in personal relationship with God and who empowers the Christian to live a godly life.

We believe God seeks to progressively shape all those He has saved into the likeness of Jesus through the power of the scriptures, through prayer, through blessings, through suffering, and through the influence of other believers.

We believe in the spiritual unity of followers of Jesus and in the unity and necessity of the local church under the lordship of Jesus Christ.

We believe the greatest commandment is to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, all our souls, all our minds, and all our strength. We believe it is equally important to love one another as we love ourselves.
