JEWEL 2018 - CHOSEN Women's Christian Conference
We are so excited to invite you to the 2018 JEWEL Conference!
We believe that this will be another incredible day together and would love to see you there.
This year's theme is ‘Chosen’ because you are! You are handpicked, picked out, selected, pre-destined and He has created you for a purpose - Jewel 2018 will be a day full of encouragement and hope. Wherever you are on your journey, this is an opportunity for us to gather as women, lift one another up, encourage one another and seek Him.
With inspirational & faith-filled messages, powerful worship, prayer, fun and expectation; make that choice today to come and be a part of it. We can't wait to see you!
Tickets are just £12. Some of our last year's attendees would have liked the option to pre-buy a packed lunch. So, this year, we have also included this option. The packed lunch option will include a sandwich, crisps, a piece of fruit and piece of cake for a further £5. Please note that Wigston centre is literally a 2 minute walk and has many retailers that sell lunch items.
Doors will open at 9.30am for a 10am start.
Whilst praying about the conference, we were directed to the passage in Colossians 3:12 "As God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience". As a local Christian event, we would like to be able to show Jesus's love to others by supporting local courses.
This year we have chosen to work with Women's Aid Leicestershire. This crucial service is a unique provider that accompanies domestic abuse and sexual violence survivors on every step of their journey whilst also working to prevent future violence. It is a safe haven where a woman and her children can escape if they are in fear of their lives, providing accommodation, emotional support and practical tools which help them to take control and move on in their lives.
These ladies and children have often had to leave their living arrangements without any belongings. This valuable organisation helped over 2500 people last year and receives no Government funding, having to find £139k per year to meet its costs. We would like to bless the staff and those that use this service by showing them that they too have been chosen by God, are seen and loved.
You too can help. This year, we will be taking an offering during the day that will be used to buy items that the refuge has identified plus some extra bits that we hope will bless these ladies and their children. These will be made into gift hampers for the ladies that use this service.
