We have gathered names of Australian women preaching to mixed congregations. Where known, we have included their twitter handle. This list is not exhaustive (thankfully!). 

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.
