Grace Abound is committed to encouraging and equipping the women of the church to use their gifts, for the benefit of the whole church, both here in Wandsworth and around the world, for the glory of God. Our Women’s Ministry Team aims to serve the women of the church in helping them grow in their love for the Lord Jesus, and living for him as 21st century women. We wholeheartedly embrace God’s design for men and women – who are equal with one another, but differ in their roles and responsibilities.
The Biblical pattern (Titus 2, and 2 Timothy 3) is for women in the church to teach and encourage each other in Godly living, to the benefit of the whole Church, and for spreading the good news about Jesus. A central focus of our women’s ministry at Grace Abound Ministries is therefore teaching Biblical womanhood that would be less appropriate in a “whole Church” setting. We also look to create opportunities for friendship and fellowship, prayer support, honest and real accountability relationships. This may be through inter-Church activities, one to one partnerships, cell groups or small groups for prayer and Bible study, as well as bigger events such as a breakfast or an away day, and occasional evangelistic events aimed specifically for women.
Have a look at some helpful resources.

Women’s Away Day
Each year we have an away day for all of the women of the church to spend time learning and discussing together. Talks from the away day 2017 “Enjoying the love of God – Father, Son & Holy Spirit” are available to download in our media section.
Surrendering the Secret

Want to get involved in women’s ministry?
There are many ways in which you can serve with other women in the church, and everyone can (and should!) be involved. If you would like to be a prayer buddy, or offer one-to-one support to a student for a year, visit someone, or get up on a Saturday morning and cook breakfast, we can use you! Please get in touch with the team.
