Come Closer usually has various things happening through the year. However, in line with government guidelines, we have cancelled our monthly meetings, where we gather together, for the foreseeable future. We will let you know when this changes.


In order to build and strengthen yourself, we have both a book club and do periodic Bible Studies. See below for some recommended reading via out book club called ‘Read it Closer’. Also below are details of free on-line Bible Studies. Enjoy!

studyitcloserStudy it Closer is the periodic Bible Studies we do.

If you would like to do a free on-line Bible Study, why not visit Lifeway Women. They currently have a number of studies you can follow whilst we are all at home. Simply sign up by going to: 





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.
