Welcome to the Flourish Women’s Ministry page.
The Flourish committee consists of eight members.

- Secretary: Karlene
- Treasurer: Pearl
- General Committee Members: Gill R, Gill G, Hannan, Rebecca
The committee is meeting regularly by Zoom, seeking God to help us in supporting the women of the congregation.
Current world and local events are times as we have never known them before. As governments seek to control COVID-19 we are required to maintain physical distance and places of worship have been closed. We are no longer able to meet physically as the body of Christ. Despite our physical distancing and potential isolation it is important that we do not become socially isolated. The Flourish committee is seeking ways to help women of the congregation stay connected and supportive of one another during these times. We have had a number of ideas and hope to be able to implement them in the coming days.
This is the place where the Flourish committee can communicate with the ladies of the congregation. Please check this space regularly to stay informed.
We have set up an email address so that you are able to contact the Flourish Committee in order to express interest in our programs and provide your details. The email address is: email@example.com. We will also send you emails from time to time from this account, including email devotions, if desired.
The WhatsApp group aims to keep the women of our church connected via phone (especially while we cannot meet in person). In this space, we can share practical and prayer needs and encouragement. Please email your mobile number to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the group and download WhatsApp on your phone.
Zoom Coffee Evening – 7:30pm Monday 28 September
Thank you to everyone who attended the recent Zoom Coffee Evening. What a blessed time we had. There was lots of chatting and catching up. Janet organised a fun game and Ange’s talk both challenged and encouraged us. Her concluding words were: “Welcome God into your struggle…He is faithful. He will do it. Don’t give up.” This is true for each of us today.
Conference – postponed until 2021
The previously announced Flourish Women’s Conference will be postponed to next year due to current restrictions on large gatherings.
In the 2019 Flourish conference on the topic of prayer, we were encouraged to meet in small groups for regular prayer and encouragement. The Women’s Prayer Meeting has met this need in the past. While restrictions are in place, these small group meetings could occur via phone or video call. If you are not currently meeting with other women for prayer, we are able to assist you in forming a small group. If you are interested in joining or forming a small prayer group, please email us at email@example.com to express your interest.
Do you enjoy reading? Do you enjoy friendly, encouraging discussion? If yes, then Book Club is a great place for you. The group reads a nominated book and then meets every five weeks via the zoom platform to chat and discuss the read book. So far this year we have read five books, Joni, Lineage of Grace, In the Land of the Blue Burkas, Gray Matter and Forgiven. Each book has encouraged us in our faith as we have thought about and discussed their themes and testimonies. Our next book is The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom. It is available online in hard copy from several stores and in both e-book and audiobook format. Our next Book Club meeting is on Monday 23rd November at 8pm. We’d love you to join us. Please send us an email, firstname.lastname@example.org so we can send you the zoom meeting details. Feel free to contact us if you need more details or help.
Today’s challenges can make a fulfilling Christian life for women seem like an impossible dream. However, the Word of God has all the secret nuggets we need to soar in our Christian journey. The Flourish Committee has therefore decided to share fortnightly devotions by email with ladies to enrich their Christian life. These devotions will be prepared by different ladies of the congregation. Kindly send your email address to email@example.com if you wish to receive fortnightly devotions.
Bible Study Packs will be prepared monthly. Each pack will contain four booklets, one per week. Each month will follow a particular theme. Lydia is preparing the study material as part of her METRO traineeship. All ladies who are interested in receiving these packs please email us your details, including your postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If any families or households of the congregation are presently experiencing difficulties in providing meals or obtaining groceries, please send us an email with your details and need to email@example.com. We will work in coordination with the Deacons to see what we are able to do to help.
