The vision for Sharing the Journey is to enable women of all ages and all stages of faith to receive spiritually and grow in faith together. It's a welcoming space to support and encourage one another and where we can each be served and nurtured too. Our hope for 2024 is to grow Deeper Roots together by focusing on ‘holding on to his teaching’.
Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." John 8 v 31, 32
During the year there are a variety of opportunities to gather together. You are welcome to come to any and all of them!
A social and creative time with a short reflective time of gratitude. It is held on bimonthly Friday evenings between 7pm and 9pm. Some come along with little or no craft experience, some are very skilled and want to try something new and some ladies come for the coffee and chat and are happy to watch the crafting. There is a small charge if you wish to join in the craft, so everyone is invited to sign up via ChurchSuite or by contacting the office.
A time of spiritual reflection and growth in the beautiful spacious environment of the church. It’s an opportunity to listen to a speaker unpack God’s word, then have space to process our thoughts through times of discussion and quiet reflection alongside times of sung worship. We meet quarterly on Saturday mornings, 10am- 11:30am.
Stretch & Reflect
A very gentle time of guided stretches prayer and reflection on God’s Word. An opportunity to ‘re-centre our scattered senses upon the Lord.’ Please join us for the session at Church Camp which is in a tranquil location by the lake away from the busyness of camp and life in general.
Nnew for 2024! We are very excited to be providing a women’s retreat weekend at CBC with space together to focus on the Psalms, relax, have fun, be creative and be renewed. It will begin with a session on the Friday evening ending in a candlelit quiet time together, then continue on the Saturday, 10am-5pm.
A Bible study for mums of secondary, primary, infant and pre-school children and babies, every Monday during term-time starting at 12.30pm. A free lunch is provided for everyone and there are age appropriate toys for any pre-school children to play with. Deeper promises to be an encouraging and refreshing time to share and pray together.
All of our Sharing the Journey events have delicious homemade refreshments and an invitation to just come as you are. Please sign up via ChurchSuite or contact the office to let us know you are coming.
