We have gathered names of as many Australian women preaching to mixed congregations we can find. 

This list is recommended by our community and is not necessarily an endorsement from FHE. Of course, the Uniting Church in Australia is known for having many women in preaching roles within their church community. So for this reason we have not included Uniting Church references.
