The Girls’ Friendly Society has been part of the lives of millions of girls and women ever since a young woman’s dream became a reality and Mary Elisabeth Townsend founded a society in 1875 that was to become known throughout the world by just three letter GFS.  Today here in Perth, around Australia and in parts of the world we have men involved in the ministry of the organisation as well.

Townsend Fellowship Group

In Perth we offer a monthly morning tea at Townsend Lodge for current and past members to meet and share in a time of fellowship with each other.  This takes place on the first Tuesday of each month (except January) at 10.30am and we ask that you let us know if you are coming for catering purposes.

Mother & Daughter High Tea

An annual afternoon of fun, food and friendship awaits at our Mother & Daughter High Teas.  Held on the Saturday the weekend before Mothers Day we gather usually at an Anglican Parish to enjoy tasty delights, tea and coffee and champagne.  We run a raffle with LOTS of prizes and a door prize as well.  Funds raised go towards the current World Project of GFS or another GFS project either in Australia or overseas.  We usually have a theme and we welcome all women and girls to attend, bring a mother, mother-in-law, sister, sister-in-law, cousin, friend, daughter, daughter-in-law and come and enjoy a great afternoon.
This year the Mother and Daughter High Tea will be at St John’s Greenwood.  Click on the button below to book your tickets – they are limited this year so don’t miss out!

St Anslem’s Kingsley/Woodvale

We had a great afternoon on Saturday May 5th at St Anslem’s Kingsley.  We were able to use the wonderful new facilities they have there.  All those who came along enjoyed a fabulous time of food and friendship.  We had lots of prizes to be won and a goodie bag for all the “mums” and we welcomed quite a few new people who we hope can come again. Thanks to all who helped out setting up and cleaning away it was very much appreciated.  We raised over $600 on the day, profits will go to the GFS World Project in Sri Lanka.   Til next year…

On the weekend before Father’s Day we hold an afternoon for the Dads’N’Lads.  A “Girl FREE” zone for men and their sons, grandsons, nephews, friends to get together and celebrate their familes and friendship.
Big games, food and fun await at this afternoon.  Check in here closer to August to find out the date, time and place of our next Dad’N’Lads.
