Getting Real in Nottingham

On May 18th, we welcomed over 70 women to our Women of Influence Get Real day in Nottingham.

We started the day with a round of Human Bingo to get to know each other better, and then Jess led us in some beautiful worship.get real 5

Jo Hargreaves, our guest speaker, gave brilliant talks which were rich with content – both thought-provoking and highly practical. We also loved how she took on board the Get Real theme, with an opening session that was both challenging and hilarious in its honesty as she looked at the importance of remembering ‘whose we are’.

After drinks and cake, we broke off into 3 groups for workshops, either completing a spiritual health check with handy steps to move forwards, considering ways to achieve better balance and different journaling techniques to help us Get Real with God.

Lunch was absolutely fantastic, prepared by women from the Betel charity, who took sandwiches and salads to a whole new level! Then, after a game of ‘Would I Lie to You’, two of the women from Betel shared their inspiring stories of how learning to Get Real when joining the Betel community lifted them out of addiction and depression, and enabled them to find new life through Jesus. We also heard a testimony of comfort and challenge from Pearl about Getting Real when it comes to losing those we love.

Jo Hargreaves then finished off the day by looking at the power of perspective.

It was an amazing day all round, crammed with opportunities for God to speak to us, and for us to connect with him and each other. We were especially thrilled that one woman gave her life to Jesus for the first time!

A huge thank you to everyone involved in making the day so fantastic.
