Women of Faith breakfast meetings were designed to invite women to tell and hear the stories of their Christian journeys. The program was initiated by the Reverend Claire Wade and has been continued after her departure by a planning committee headed by Alison Keenan.
Each gathering begins at 8:45 on a Saturday morning with breakfast and conversation in the great hall. After a delicious breakfast we move into the chapel for singing and inspiration in the form of scripture readings, skits, short essays or meditations. This is followed by more singing and our speaker of the day – usually a woman from our own congregation, but occasionally from outside the community. We try to be finished and leaving for home by 11 a.m.
The breakfasts are self financed, with the women giving a free will offering when they arrive. Excess funds over expenses have been donated to other church ministries.
All women of the parish are invited to attend these gatherings and are also encouraged to bring along friends and neighbours.
