Hello Beloved One,
First, thanks for taking a little time out of your day to come and be here. My hope for this site is simple:
Come Closer Together…. To encourage everyday women (like you) to come together and inspire and encourage one another.
Come Closer to God… Through the articles and materials shared on this site, and the opportunities to meet together both on-line and in-person, you will draw closer to your heavenly Father God whose love for you is so magnificent.
We have a number of ways which we hope blesses and encourages you.
Our blog ‘Simply Closer’. We chose the word ‘simply’ as we believe God told us to keep things simple. We can also come to God simply (completely) as we are and allow Him to change us in only the way that He can. Articles are written by myself, the Come Closer team and other everyday women who simply want to share with you their own experiences.
We aim to strengthen you in your everyday life through meeting together, whether on-line or in-person. Colossians 2:6-7 says: Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. Alongside meeting we post videos to encourage and build you up In Him.
We are currently praying for a new venue to enable us to meet together following COVID. Our aim to begin meeting together again, gathering in Milton Keynes, England. With a time of worship, guest speakers and simply laughing and sharing life, our prayer is that you’ll be encouraged and equipped and know Him more and more. We keep things real at Come Closer, so whether you’re feeling frazzled or just had a relaxing facial, come along and let’s be genuine together.
We are all on a journey and the women who contribute to Come Closer are no different. None of us have the same story. We’ve all faced obstacles, some harder to imagine than others, but we know that God is who He says He is, and is able to help YOU every day, no matter what your past or present situation is.
So, take a look around… Why not start by reading a poem that started us on this journey called ‘Come Closer’.
Be strengthened. Be encouraged.
Emma Beaney and all the Come Closer team.

Dear Emma and Deborah
Thank you so much for a wonderful Come Closer Zoom session this evening. It was lovely to be able to join with other Christian ladies to be reminded of God’s wonderful love for us all which is so important to us all during these difficult times.
I look forward to joining you again next month.
Kind regards Sandra Gardner
