Refresh @ Christchurch – Women’s Day 2018
Last Saturday, Christchurch was filled with joy, laughter, worship, prayer, singing, praising and, of course plenty of chatter(!), as friends old and new met up for our Women’s Day 2018. A BIG thank you to the 136 ladies who came along and made it such a special occasion. Anne Calver, a speaker at New Wine, gave two inspiring talks during the day (available on our website under Growing > Teaching). We heard two blessed and thought-provoking Testimonies. Thanks also go to the Men’s Team of helpers, the Tech Team and the Worship Team for all their support (Julian’s first year leading the Worship Team was a great success), to the bakers for their delicious cakes and to Gwen for the beautiful flowers.
Our chosen charity was One25 which deals with street girls and women of Bristol. Sue and Joy gave us an informative insight into the problems these girls face every single day, including some scary statistics. An amazing amount of £365 was donated towards their work, as well as a mound of clothing and toiletries which just fitted in their car! Please have a look at their website one25.org.uk.
Look out for details of our Women’s Breakfast in June.
