We believe that God has a plan and purpose for everyone, but at Embrace (Women’s Fellowship) we have a particular desire to help everywoman to identify, fulfil and function in their God given purpose. We meet regularly on average every 4-6 weeks usually on a Saturday morning in Buckhurst Hill. No two events are ever the same….we range from Pamper sessions to Bible Studies! We discuss life issues, the Bible, pray, share testimonies and generally support each other practically and spiritually.
Over the last year we have run Breakfast meetings, a visit to the theatre, Question Time with the men, Healthy Living morning, an evening meal at an Indian resturant, prayer meetings, and run a joint party with the men. Where possible we try to have a crèche at our in-house meetings so women are free to attend knowing their children are safely looked after by CRB check staff.
Our purpose is to create a forum where all women whether they are from the church or not can join together. It’s a forum where women can laugh, cry, be supported, share experiences, be encouraged, get practical help and exercise their gifts and talents.
We have a tremendous team of ladies who head up the ministry and each have a responsibility to develop their specific area of responsibility whilst recruiting others to help them. The various areas include: pastoral care, evangelism, social events, finances, young women, publicity…
We want women to get involved and serve God. We welcome any ideas or suggestions that can help develop this life link. We are always looking for more women to join us, if you would like to find out more then contact the church office.
