Description

Real Life & Singleness

'Real Life and Singleness’ is a one-day event for women to gather together to be encouraged and refreshed. The workshop is suitable for Christian singles (never-married, separated, divorced, widowed) and those in ministry with singles.

We would love for you to join us on Saturday 2nd September as we speak on the challenges and joys of singleness.

Christian singles come in all ages, professions, relationship status and genders. You may be never-married, separated, divorced, widowed; a lawyer, a child care worker, a personal trainer; teenager or octogenarian.

We will explore the concerns of single Christian women and the bibles response. It provides a safe place for single women to discuss their concerns on relationship, intimacy and sexuality, and explore ways in which these feelings and desires can be dealt with.

The day will consist of small group discussions, time for sharing and time for prayer.

Why this event….

Many years ago, during a time when I was deeply hurting, I started to question what Christian care should actually look like… on a day to day, week to week basis what should the church’s response be to single women who are really struggling?

At the time, I’d approached my church for help because I didn’t feel like I was coping on my own. The advice I was given was to read my bible more and make sure I was attending church consistently.

While there was nothing inherently wrong with the advice I was given… I remember thinking that if that was the extent of the support available to me it was going to be a very lonely journey.

I was reading my bible, I was praying, but what I needed was for people to accept me where I was at and come around me in a real and consistent way.

God in His grace provided for me, he brought women into my life that had experienced many of the same emotions and experience of aloneness that I had felt. I found wisdom, comfort and encouragement in their experiences.

I’m sure that it wasn’t always easy or convenient for them to always make the time, at times it would have been a sacrifice, but the time and relationships that these women gave me made a huge impact on my life.

I’ve found that God has continued to bring women with similar experiences into my life, similar stories of feeling alone and isolated. I wanted to create a forum that in a very real way addressed the day to day and week to week issues that these women were faced with and shed light on the experiences of single Christian women – whether divorced, unmarried, long term single or widowed.

In opening discussions, we know that some of the questions may not be ‘neat’ or ‘nice’. We may not be able to provide all the answers… but we want to open a dialogue, where unspoken issues can be spoken in the open.

In organizing this event we have been praying that women who have walked alone, or felt alone will be blessed and encouraged.
