Women and God Annual Gathering 2019
Women and God is our national annual gathering for women to 'explore, learn and grow' and celebrate what it means to be a Woman of God.
Women and God weekend is the UKIT national event for women and we are looking forward to a fantastic time, full of challenge, exploration, fellowship and fun.
Once again we will be in the lovely surroundings of the Hayes Conference Centre and will be making full use of all the facilities and, weather permitting, the grounds and surrounding area there.
Extra-ordinary. Discovering the Power of an Ordinary life
This year our theme is Extra-ordinary. Discovering the Power of an Ordinary life.
We are especially focussing on what it is to invite God into the ordinary everyday of our lives, discovering that He uses the ordinary in the most extraordinary ways!
Most people would see themselves as pretty ordinary and if we are not careful we view ordinary as “being of no real consequence” and nothing could be further from the truth. We see time and time again in scripture, how there is no one so ordinary that they are over looked by God and cannot be used in unimagined and spectacular ways. The most ordinary of tasks, performed out of love for God and others, will always have the most profound and eternal consequences, even if we don’t always see it!
St Paul says that God uses ordinary clay jars and fills them with His glory - Wow!
So why don’t you join us…
Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering…You’ll be changed from the inside out…God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12: 1, 2 The Message
