Ideas for Autumn and Winter

We love gathering friends together over food on dark winter evenings. But sometimes it’s great to have new ideas to try out rather than it just be the same old thing of gathering round the table and eating too much.

Does anybody have any bright ideas for a fun evening that might spark off deeper conversations rather than just “How are your kids getting on?”


Welcome to the new look Activate website and we do hope you’ll stay a while, look around and contribute in some way to our community. Please feel free to post questions or helpful comments.

We want to provide food for thought and – more importantly – food for action. Our desire is that by joining with us you will feel inspired and resourced to Activate your life, your faith and your mind.

This weekend 14-16th November is our annual Weekend Away at the Royal Court Hotel in Coventry. So if you are a spontaneous sort of person and fancy a last minute break then why not contact us and see about joining in?

We’ve got a fabulous girly weekend planned with lots of fun, good food and good company so watch this space for feedback.
Hope to hear from you soon

Activate Autumn Weekend Away

Switch On – Because you’re worth it!

We hope you’ll agree that it’s wonderful being a woman. But isn’t one of the downsides that we often don’t value ourselves enough – don’t recognise our own worth?

So our fabulous Activate Autumn Weekend Away is designed to redress the balance! There’ll be lots of opportunities for pampering yourself as well as gently stretching your brain and your muscles.

You can sample any or all of the goodies on offer yourself over the weekend and then take the best of them back home to share with others in your community. We’ll look at time management for manic mums – or any busy women for that matter – as well as great easy recipes to free up some kitchen time, and we’ll share some good food and fun. We’ll look at books and film, ethical fashion and beauty, self image, career and personal development.

And we’ll leave time for pampering. You can take home some recipes for potent lotions and potions to make as gifts for others or to use in your own bathroom. Hopefully we’ll all learn to love ourselves a bit more. There’ll also be an opportunity to explore why we’re of so much value to the one who made us just the way we are.

Tempted? Then book now and reserve yourself a place – Because you’re worth it!

Unlocking the Door: Evangelism in the Real World

Ever thought ‘I don’t have any friends who want to attend an Alpha course’? Or ‘No-one I know comes to outreach events’?

You’re not alone. Most non-Christians are not ready to do an evangelistic course – but most resources are aimed at those who are. This fills that gap. Ruth Adams and Jan Harney are passionate meeting non-Christians where they are and Unlocking the Door gives you masses of ideas on how to do so. Based around a house, it shows how we all have resources, interests and talents that we can use to build bridges of friendship.

A must-have to make your outreach more effective, efficient and imaginative.
