"May the graciousness of the Lord our God be upon us and prosper the work of our hands, prosper our handiwork." (Psalm 90:17)
"She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands" (Proverbs 31:13)
Founded in the 1990s, this friendly group meets fortnightly throughout the year on alternate Wednesday mornings in members' homes, making crafts and recycled greetings cards to sell for church funds. We have also made several banners for church.
We support each other with prayer: as we work, we share concerns that we have, and then pray for those situations. We have had some amazing answers to these prayers for which we thank our loving Father God.
We also have a prayer shawl ministry, using a pattern based on the Trinity, from the book “Knitting into the Mystery”. These warm and comforting shawls and blankets are much appreciated by those who receive them.
Occasionally, we have outings to craft shops and garden centres, and we have a celebration shared lunch around Christmas time.
