Welcome to Arise Women’s Ministry here at Lakes Christian Centre.
Arise is headed up by Shelley Atkinson. Shelley is passionate about prayer and gathering women together under one banner: seeking Christ and knowing who we are in Him. Arise endeavours to help women build each other up in faith, let go of the past and enjoy their freedom in Christ.
We annually host ‘Her Story’, an event where the church sanctuary is transformed into a beautiful space for women to relax and enjoy an evening together. It is a night of fellowship, good food and listening to someone share Her Story of a life with Christ. This is a great opportunity for ladies within the church to invite their non-Christian friends, neighbours and colleagues to a night where many have been touched by the Holy Spirit.
A big thanks to Diane Comer from Oregon who came to share her testimony with us in February 2017. It was a blessed evening and no doubt a great encouragement to all. If you were unable to come along, you can have listen via the link below.
We would like to thank everyone who attended our first mini conference in 2016 called 'Illuminate'. We enjoyed an encouraging afternoon of worship, prayer, fellowship, refreshments and a message of inspiration from Diana Berry who spoke on 1 Peter 2.9-10.
We also launched our first Arise Women's Magazine, which you can read and listen to below.
