Flourish Women's Ministry

Flourish-logo-png

To flourish means 'to thrive and grow'! 

So what does Biblical flourishing look like? 

  • Coming to know Jesus as our Lord and Saviour. (John 3:16) 
  • Deepening and strengthening our faith as a follower of Jesus (John 10:10)
  • Being part of a church community where we can build friendships, pray and worship together and learn from each other. (Acts 2: 42-47, Galatians 6:10, Hebrews 10: 24-25)
  • Making a positive difference for those around us, whether they are family, friends, work colleagues  or people in the wider community. (Matthew 5:14, Matthew 25: 34-40)     
Throughout the Bible we see stories of women of all ages, cultures and backgrounds who walked with God and served God's purposes in their generation. They continue to inspire us today as 21st century women! Flourish is about gathering women together to worship and pray, equipping them by teaching from the Bible and inspirational life stories, and encouraging women to find purpose in serving those around them.

Planning your Visit

A Warm 'Hello'!

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know beforehand what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where & When?

We meet at the Storey's Field Centre in Eddington (details below) for our Sunday Service starting at 9.45am.  When you arrive, you will be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team..

Accessibility

There is wheelchair access and a disabled toilet on the ground floor. There is wheelchair access to the first floor by lift.

Our Sunday Service

The main service begins at 9.45am with a warm welcome from one of our leadership team. Then follows a time of  worship, led by our band. Sometimes a person might pray out loud or read a small passage from the Bible. Sometimes people share things that they believe God is saying to the whole church family. This might seem strange the first time that you hear it, but it’s all part of our connecting with God. One of our leaders will then give a sermon that is Bible-based and that we can apply to our everyday life. We then finish with a final worship song. There is always an opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service.


What About My Kids?

We have a great programme lined up for kids of all ages (click on them to find out more about them):

We really value worshipping God together as a family, so we encourage children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service for the welcome, songs and notices. After this, the children will go to their various groups. You will need to go with your children to their groups and register them as part of our Safeguarding Policy.  

The kids' group activities vary depending on the age but usually there is a friendly welcome, Bible stories, testimonies, praying, music, craft, drama, fun games and free play. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.

Getting Connected


Small Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out our Midweek Groups page and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.

Serving & Volunteering

If you want to get involved in the life of the church and help us make Sundays run smoothly, you can sign up to serve on a team.

Pastor Ian Rawley

 

Carole Rawley

In 1974 I had an encounter with God that changed my life, causing me a few years later to train as a pastor. As well as leading New Life Church, over the last few decades I have had the immense privilege of helping to equip church leaders in many nations of the world. Welcome to our website & our church!

 

Hello and welcome! I decided to follow Jesus when I was 15 years old and it has been the greatest adventure of my life! At New Life Church, I lead our youth ministry and our women's ministry. I also work alongside Ian and our leadership team in overseeing our pastoral care. We are here to serve you!  

 

We are looking forward to welcoming you to New Life Church and hope you enjoy your time with us.
