This autumn GB Ministries is hosting a retreat weekend for women of all ages at the beautiful Cliff College. The weekend, based around the story of Abigail in the Old Testament, will take place from Friday 26 to Sunday 28 October 2018.
Tucked away in the Old Testament is the little-known story of Abigail, a woman described as both beautiful and wise who finds herself in a difficult situation. Responding to the crisis she reaches into her well-stocked storehouse and prepares a meal as a peace-offering. She is ready. Her offering is received. Peace is resumed.
Join us as we discover the richness of this simple tale, consider how we can restock our own spiritual storehouses, and invite God to develop our character as we do so.
Following on from a refreshing taster weekend for GBEW leaders in June which looked at the story of Mary and Martha, this retreat will be open to women of all ages, inside and outside of GB.
The weekend is an opportunity to get together and support one another, spend time with God, and be refreshed. We hope to see you there!
Date: 6.30pm Friday 26 October – 2.30pm Sunday 28 October 2018.
Place: Cliff College, Calver, Hope Valley, Derbyshire, S32 3XG.
Cost: £175 which includes all food, accommodation and materials. Single room supplement £20.

On Wednesday, Girlguiding released its annual Girls’ Attitudes survey. The biggest survey of its kind in the UK, it asked the opinions of just under 2,000 girls and young women aged 7 to 21 (not just members of Girlguiding). As it gives us an insight about how girls feel about a range of issues, emerging pressures and what they need to support their happiness, wellbeing and opportunities in life, it’s important that we listen to their voices.
