Time set aside for women to encourage and be encouraged.
The women's ministry in St Martin's gathers irregularly during the year though when we do meet, we aim to encourage women to flourish in God’s goodness and purpose and build rich and lasting friendships.
Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.
They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water…
Jeremiah 17: 7 –8a (NLT)
We arrange occasional events and meetings which offer help, encouragement and friendship to women in the midst of busy lives.
Every April we spend a weekend at the beautiful Buckfast Abbey, leaving husbands and children at home to fend for themselves! Our time together is always a time of spiritual growth and we very often find out more about each other - and ourselves. There is usually a guest speaker and good food provided.
We also enjoy occasional away days for times of spiritual refreshment and encouragement. These often take place in local churches and we enjoy hearing from visiting speakers and joining together in prayer and worship, as well as sharing a light lunch together.
If you would like to know more about any of these events please Contact Us for more information.
