The Winter Glory Women’s Conference has grown out of the annual women’s day at the church of Christ the King in Kettering (ctk.org.uk). After three years in the church we felt the Lord was telling us to “give it away” to the wider church. We had always had women from other churches attending, but this was to be for everyone. In recent years, we have been amazed by the wide range of churches, denominations, and geographical locations represented among our conference guests. Right from our first event in church we have always started with a team day of prayer, in which we have sought God’s plans for the day and then all the shaping of the conference has sprung from that time.
Our aim has been to glorify the Lord and to encourage his daughters in every way that we could – making them feel welcomed, loved and valued. Thoughtfully decorated spaces, free magazines and bible notes, little gifts and a whole team of “smiley ladies”, along with the opportunity to take time out to listen to God and worship him – we aim to pour out love over our guests, as a reflection of God’s love. The Lord has provided amazingly to enable us to run the conference, and each time the women attending have given generously to the offering too, so we have been able to donate over £10,000 to charities.
Things will be changing again in 2019: The Kettering conference will be moving to a new venue – Kettering Bucchleuch Academy. St George’s, Stamford will be taking a break from hosting a conference for this year. We have a new additional conference venue for 2019 – Holy Trinity Church in Leicester will be hosting their very own Winter Glory Conference.
