Welcome back to our in-person conventions this Autumn. What a long time it has been!

We are thrilled to be able to come together again from across our churches in the North of England. It is so good to meet with women from various places, backgrounds and churches but all seeking to know Christ better and serve him more. 

It is also a fantastic opportunity to gather women from your church family together for a day in Manchester or Leeds and hear God’s word, to build you up, and to sing praises together to refresh your souls.

We are planning to do things a little differently this year – we have a less intense programme to give more time for fellowship, conversation and coffee, an opportunity to browse the bookstall, and time to absorb and discuss what we have been learning.

We are delighted that our friend Felicity Carswell is coming back from the USA to be with us and teach us from God’s word.

We pray that this day will inspire, encourage, and challenge us. We pray for God’s Spirit to work through his word so we may be built up in Him.

Felicity currently lives near Chicago, USA, but previously lived in Leyland, Lancashire. She is married to Jonathan, and they have two boys, Rufus (6) and Billy (4). They’re in the States with 10ofThose.com. When not on a book-selling adventure in a big yellow van, Felicity can usually be found entertaining little boys, teaching the Bible in her local church or podcasting with her sister with Two Sisters and a Cup of Tea. She loves people, playing sport and reading a good novel.


Following Jesus in family life

Claire Wroe

Social media is full of dream homes and ideal families. Friends often contribute their new-found life hacks and helpful tips. In this seminar we will spend some time thinking through how we can help families shape their culture. What kind of culture can we try to develop that helps children to become more like Jesus?

Serving as an older woman

Daphne Ross

Our latter years can be an exciting time of service and evangelism. Contrary to much current thinking, advanced age does not bar us from fruitful service to both younger generations and non-believers. But how? Come and find out from Titus 2 and share lots of practical advice.

When church hurts

Karen Soole

At times Church is a great joy but at others it is the source of deep pain. We have many expectations of what Church should be, yet many frustrations with what it actually is. We can be hurt by Church; some have experienced horrific abuse. We can be tempted to give up on it altogether. Why does the Church seem to constantly fail? What do we need to know when Church hurts?

Please note: this seminar is now fully booked in Leeds

reflection and prayer

Our lives are often so busy it’s hard to find time to think and pray through what God has been teaching us from his word. As well as seminars, this year we’ll also have space and time for you to take time out, by yourself or with friends, to reflect on the message you’ve heard. There will be sheets with questions for reflection available.
