Paul and Jean have spent the weekend at Christian Women's Fellowship weekend with 106 amazing ladies - Paul shared about unconditional love and the way the church is leading the way in offering unconditional love in almost every area of need in our nation. Jean led a workshop on hospitality and Paul led a workshop around the night-time economy.
The amazing ladies raised over £560 (£700 with Gift Aid) for the golf buggy appeal for the Majorca Street Angels Spain - this will help the team get people back to hotels and then get back out to help more people - walking people from hotel to hotel takes up valuable time! One lady imagined we were wanting to buy golf club buggies - she had images of us lifting people into the golf club bag and then wheeling them to the hotel!!! (still deciding head or feet first!!!)
Thanks to the ladies for the invitation and support for what we do in 125 communities across UK, Spain and Australia!

Article which mentions that:
"The churches are very much larger than any British political party. Even the Methodist church has more paying members than the Conservative or Labour parties – more than the Conservatives and Ukip together. The Church of England has five times as many people in church every Sunday than the number of Tory party members."
Many of the ladies also knitted chickens which include a Creme Egg and the message, "You are amazing because God made you to be you! As you eat this egg pray that God will offer you a new start this Easter." The 45 chicks and eggs will be distributed to projects across the UK to hand out to some of those we help over the Easter weekend.
