Friday September 13th @ 7:45pm


On Friday September 13th we have our first Come Closer after the summer break! We’re really looking forward to all that is in store over this coming time together. This month we couldn’t be happier to tell you that the wonderful Laura Oxley and Sarah Shrimpton are coming to share at Come Closer. They are formidable and gifted women who love God. They both have a ministry in music, and will be sharing from their own personal walks and encouraging us.
So, we’ll be having an evening filled with music, worship and inspiration. Come along and don’t forget to share this event with all the other women in your world. Admission is free. Our address is World Vision House, Opal Drive, Fox Milne, Milton Keynes, MK15 0ZR
Looking forward to seeing you soon
Love all the Come Closer team.

Saturday July 6th : Special Morning Come Closer with guest speaker Cathy Madavan @ 9:45am –

We are so grateful to Cathy Madavan for coming and sharing at Come Closer. It was a powerful morning. The women leaned in and God did what only He can do. Thank you Cathy for coming to Come Closer. We love you and will be praying as God continues to do great things through you!

This term we are reading ‘Unexpected’ by Christine Caine.

Please note this Book Club doesn’t replace the Come Closer Bible study, it’s just another layer for those who are interested. Feel free to join us!

At Come Closer we completed the Bible Study by Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer and Kay Arthur called ‘Anointed, Transformed, Redeemed’ based on the life of David.

We’ll be doing another bible study shortly, and will update you with more details.




A taster of previous sessions and speakers:

Speaker Kelly Minter – Tuesday was a great evening! Gathering together with amazing women across the city and beyond! Kelly truly blessed us! We worshiped together and then leaned in to hear what she had to say. She encouraged and challenged us in that reaching out to the poor, lost and least: always leads us to the end of ourselves, but then ultimately to Jesus; reminds us of where we have come from (the grace, power and wonder of salvation); and it is a common entry into God’s story!

Speaker – Rebekah Taylor – Rebekah spoke about the power fear can have over our lives. Read Rebekah’s blog here!

Speaker Birgitte Grace – This was a powerful message where Birgitte broke down the complex subject of the soul into bite sized chunks with brilliant visuals. Thank you Birgitte! We will never forget the bald hedgehog!

Speaker Emma Beaney shared some thoughts with us! “Be encouraged. God is so good, and wants you to come so much closer to Him. To rest in Him, to lean into Him. Let me encourage you to ‘pause’ and take steps over these coming weeks to give him the much needed ‘space’ in your life. I pray you will know His presence, His peace, His life and His altogether loveliness. He is faithful and His love endures forever. Love Emma “

Speaker: Cally Magalhães – We were incredibly privileged and excited to have had Cally Magalhães speak at Come Closer. Cally is an absolute inspiration who runs the Eagle Project –  working on the streets and in the prisons of São Paulo – Brazil. The Eagle Project does amazing work, helping each individual rebuild a hope filled future.

‘MY STORY’ Evenings – These are evening where everyday women share something from their life stories. If you have been to a ‘My Story’ evening before at Come Closer, you’ll know this is not to be missed.
