This is our invitation for you to join at the April Come Closer on Zoom.
Last month we started looking together at the armour of God. We began discovering the fullness of what God has given us and exploring what it means to ‘suit up’ with our spiritual armour.
This month we are going to focus in on RIGHTEOUSNESS – the breastplate of Righteousness. We have a few women who are going to be telling their stories, as together we excavate the treasures of God’s word. We’ll also have a visual download for you to print and use at home (see above).
We hope you’ll join us on April 23rd at 7:30pm on Zoom. The meeting details are below:

(Please message Emma Beaney for the password or email email@example.com).
So what happens on the Zoom:
This is a space where we connect and spend some precious time together. Grab yourself a drink (and maybe a treat to eat) and join the team as we relax together and enjoy some uninterrupted time of encouragement.
They’ll be a short message and a time to breakout into groups. If you feel a bit nervous, and have a friend attending too, message Emma and she will try to place you both in the same breakout room. We really are a friendly bunch!
We’re really looking forward to seeing you. Go on… Be Brave… come along… We so look forward to being together!
Love your Come Closer team.

A taster of previous Come Closer sessions and speakers:
Saturday July 6th : Special Morning Come Closer with guest speaker Cathy Madavan @ 9:45am –
We are so grateful to Cathy Madavan for coming and sharing at Come Closer. It was a powerful morning. The women leaned in and God did what only He can do. Thank you Cathy for coming to Come Closer. We love you and will be praying as God continues to do great things through you!
Speaker Kelly Minter – Tuesday was a great evening! Gathering together with amazing women across the city and beyond! Kelly truly blessed us! We worshiped together and then leaned in to hear what she had to say. She encouraged and challenged us in that reaching out to the poor, lost and least: always leads us to the end of ourselves, but then ultimately to Jesus; reminds us of where we have come from (the grace, power and wonder of salvation); and it is a common entry into God’s story!
Speaker – Rebekah Taylor – Rebekah spoke about the power fear can have over our lives. Read Rebekah’s blog here!
Speaker Birgitte Grace – This was a powerful message where Birgitte broke down the complex subject of the soul into bite sized chunks with brilliant visuals. Thank you Birgitte! We will never forget the bald hedgehog!
Speaker Emma Beaney shared some thoughts with us! “Be encouraged. God is so good, and wants you to come so much closer to Him. To rest in Him, to lean into Him. Let me encourage you to ‘pause’ and take steps over these coming weeks to give him the much needed ‘space’ in your life. I pray you will know His presence, His peace, His life and His altogether loveliness. He is faithful and His love endures forever. Love Emma “
Speaker: Cally Magalhães – We were incredibly privileged and excited to have had Cally Magalhães speak at Come Closer. Cally is an absolute inspiration who runs the Eagle Project – working on the streets and in the prisons of São Paulo – Brazil. The Eagle Project does amazing work, helping each individual rebuild a hope filled future.
‘MY STORY’ Evenings – These are evening where everyday women share something from their life stories. If you have been to a ‘My Story’ evening before at Come Closer, you’ll know this is not to be missed.
