We had our second Ladies’ day Saturday , 16th and it’s already fading in our memory – yet once again we were blessed in many different ways. Over 50 Ladies mainly from our church got together to spend time with God relaxing in God’s presence and with each other.
The theme was ’In the Light of His presence’- Sheena had made us a brilliant back drop which enhanced the sanctuary as the place to spend time with the Lord. The morning was spent with worship – wonderfully led by the Glendale worship team, we shared communion together and Liz led us in a few thoughts about Mary and Martha and then it was literally relaxing with the Lord in a one to one, using different areas in the church. The loft , the café, the quiet room and the sanctuary subdivided into different areas – each with readings , drawing and writing materials as needed.
At Lunch we enjoyed each other’s company and got to know people over an ample spread.
The afternoon starting with sharing in small groups about what happened in the morning and then we enjoyed another time of worship and reflection over what it means to ‘walk with the Lord’ and we finished with lighting a candle individually, to symbolise our renewed commitment to walking with the Lord and sharing His light with the community around us. Looking back it was a wonderful day relaxing in the Lord’s presence and re-charging our batteries for the weeks and months of 2016.
Look out for announcements of the next Ladies’ day in the spring or summer.
