Being a Christian woman in today’s world is hard, no matter what age or stage of life you are in.
You may be a young woman leaving school, entering the workforce and navigating new relationships.
Or you may be single, or newly-married, or perhaps you’ve just become a mother.
Or maybe you’ve now become an empty-nester or grandmother or widow?
We know that it really does take a village to raise a child, and our church can provide that village to help each other.
So often women tell me they would love an ‘older’ Christian woman to walk alongside them—sometimes just to listen, to advise, or to read the Bible and pray with them.
This is what Paul talks about in Titus 2 where he calls older women to be mentors, advisors and role models for younger women.
It seems we are all looking for that older, godly woman to be our mentor—but maybe that person might be you?
However, you might look at your life and think that it’s just too messy to have anything to offer another woman.
But here’s the thing: we all have messy lives, and the experiences you have lived will be of great value to help equip you to listen, advise and mentor other women.
That’s why we’ve launched ‘Nourish’: a place for women of all ages and walks of life to connect with one another over a lovely morning tea.
We plan to meet in the hall on every Thursday morning from 9.30 to 11.30am during school terms.
While we’re not specifically a craft group, please feel free to bring your knitting, crochet, cross stitch, or whatever if you’d like.
We love little ones, so please feel free to bring along toddlers… and we’ll even have some morning tea available for the kids!
So whatever your age and stage of life… no matter whether you’re single, married, widowed, a mother or a grandmother, we’d love you to join us at Nourish.
