Aim of the Day

Our desire is to enable women to be secure in their identity, living in the fullness of life that Jesus intended and being present in the heart of their community – creating innovative opportunities and meaningful relationships. Our aim is to be creative, forward-thinking and always stretching the boundaries of how Christian women can be salt and light in a fluid society.

Here is some of the feedback from past events.

Could you describe the day away in one sentence?

  • Inspiring, encouraging and real.  It’s a great day to learn more about God, myself and those I live and work with.
  • I came away feeling blessed and more confident, so thank You!
  • It was easy to understand and practical: you can take it into your walk with the Lord and reach others in little ways.
  • An uplifting, empowering and enlightening day which has helped me to be equipped to go forward in all aspects of my life.

What is your main 'takeaway' from this event?

  • How we can have an impact on others using different stratagies.
  • Blessed - learnt a lot from the speakers. Lovely songs to worship God with all the ladies there.
  • I honestly feel that I'm taking many opportunities to tell friends and neighbours about Jesus and help them on their journey towards him.
  • That being ‘me’ with God at the centre is enough. I’m thankful that my eyes have been further widened to how ‘power’ is misused in all walks of society, including in our own home. With this information and support today, I can make healthy changes to my relationship and in my workplace.

Any other comments.

  • The speakers were excellent, well informed and obviously have a heart for what God has led them to do.
  • The speakers were fantastic, very real and honest. Looking forward to going to the next event.
  • I wasn’t sure what to expect- Evangelism is a big word, but I could understand about Love and I felt enabled to show it and have God use that in His way.
  • Felt very loved and looked after. And to be able to worship with other ladies. A very special day. Thank you.
