WEFT (Women Enjoying Fellowship Together) is a group that meets on Monday evenings from 7.00pm to 9.00pm here at Christ the King. The group is for both church members and those in the wider community and includes various crafts, a reading group and a healthy living group.
WEFT - who are we & what do we do?
In a weaving, the vertical threads that form the framework are called the warp and the horizontal ones that are woven in and out, are called the weft.
When WEFT started, fourteen years ago, we envisioned a group for church and community, where lives of women were woven together- with Jesus providing the framework thread. This is what has happened, by the grace of God, with a beautiful warm group that loves to welcome new women. Women have come with a real passion for making and others who just like to come and have a go. Some teach us their skills, others add to the group just by being there. We have nearly 40 regular members of whom about 20-30 attend each week.
It is a great group to bring someone to. Maybe you’d love to spend time with a daughter(16+), your mum or sister or a friend or neighbour? Why not come with them and enjoy relaxing Monday evenings together. We’d love you to come and join us!
WEFT is a group of women who get together on Monday evenings. As you can see from the programme, we spend a lot of time making things but also have other activities from time to time. Although we enjoy making things, the real draw to come to WEFT is because of being together: chatting, laughing and sometimes crying. It is a safe place and a place of warmth and welcome. It is a church-based group, but designed for all; about half of our members come to Christ the King and half either don’t go to church or go to other churches.
Each evening we close with a few minutes reflection and anyone who would like prayer for themselves or a friend or loved one tells us and we pray for them. You are welcome to leave or stay for this part of the evening.
