At St Andrew’s we want to encourage women to live for Jesus in every area of their lives: whether that’s at home, at work, with family and friends or as part of the church family. We want our women to grow in this both on Sundays, as we hear God’s word and spend time as a church family, and throughout the week. We encourage everyone in our church family to:
prioritise meeting as a church family at one of our Sunday Services,
be a faithful member of one of our weekly Home Groups where we can encourage and support one another
use the gifts that God has given us to serve our church family and those around us.
Aside from these, there are other things we encourage women to get involved with to help them to grow as Christians:
We encourage women to meet together to read God’s word and pray. This gives us a safe place to share with others what’s going on in our lives and to encourage each other to live for Jesus in the midst of it. If you would be interested in this, please speak to Becca or Kirsty.
We have a women’s breakfast each term on a Saturday morning, and this is a chance for us to enjoy a delicious breakfast together and be challenged, taught and built up in a particular area of the Christian life.
Northern Women’s Convention
We also take a group of women from St Andrew’s to the Northern Women’s Convention. It’s great to meet other women from many different churches and learn together with them. Find out more information about the Northern Women’s Convention here
As part of our Women’s Ministry we want to help the women in our church family to speak to their friends and family about Jesus. We run an event most terms that women can invite their friends to so that they can hear about Jesus in a fun and relaxed environment. Speak to Michelle if you want to know what’s coming up next!
