Women’s Away DayAbby Brook
Our long-awaited Women’s Away Day took place on Saturday 23 September and it was wonderful. Our speaker Gill Tuck from Above Bar Church, Southampton, reminded us what a privilege it is to be invited by God to come to him in prayer. It was great to be able to spend time talking together about overcoming hindrances to prayer and to spend time individually and in groups praying. We were encouraged to choose creative ways to pray – using candles, contemplating wooden cross and even while colouring with crayons – and we spent time worshipping God in words and music.
We also had the opportunity for perusing a book stall, enjoying a walk in the autumn sunshine, creating bracelets or silk paintings, and just getting to know one another better – all in a beautiful setting at Gorsley.
Last but not least, we were served with delicious food! Grateful thanks to all who organised the day so well.
