Who we are
Women of Grace seeks to build life-giving relationships in the body among the women of GBC. Whether you are young or old, the Lord uses our unique experiences to weave the gospel into the lives of other women and play a part in their life stories.
We believe that discipleship happens best in and through relationships. Within GBC several of our groups are specific to women and are places in which we cultivate a relationship with God and others. It is within these communities that women build personal relationships and practise applying the gospel to our lives. Group members also serve together throughout the community and beyond, putting faith and compassion into action.
How to get involved
Twice a year, we hope to organise gatherings and trainings for all the women of GBC to gather, connect and study God's Word together. In May 2022, we held a Women of Grace event, which was a half-day gathering of the women of GBC.
Throughout the rest of the year, the women are involved in formal groups or more informal discipling relationships. Many of the women are also plugged into their own care groups.
We have a number of women's Bible study groups that are open to anyone who desires a deeper understanding of biblical truths as well as those interested in exploring Christianity more in depth. We hope you will consider joining one of our small groups which include:
1. The Golden Girls l 2nd and 4th Wednesdays l 9.30–11.30am
For the senior ladies (more affectionately known as Golden Girls) of our church, the group meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month. Contact Miauw Suang at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
2. Wednesday Bible Study l Every Wednesday l 7.30–9pm
The night typically starts with a teaching session at 730pm followed by the study from 8-9pm. The teaching session is done with the men, but the women gather to do study and discussion together. If you are keen or wish to find out more, please contact Jena at email@example.com.
3. Friday Ladies Group l Every Friday l 10am–12noon
This group aims for women of all ages to come together build relationships around God's Word. Through the study of God's Word, it serves also as a platform to get to know other ladies in church and to help each other grow in holiness and Christlikeness together. Contact Jena at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
4. Mums Connect l 2nd and 4th Friday l 9.30am
Mums are often busy with many demands being made on their time. This group meets to allow a platform for the mums to study God's Word together and to encourage each other as they seek to grow in this season of life. Find out more about their ministry and what they are doing here. Contact Siew Ting at email@example.com if you are keen to join them.
5. Precept Class l Every Saturday l 3.30–5pm
Open to women of all ages, the group is currently doing the book of Jeremiah. From August 2022, the ladies will be studying the books of 1 and 2 Peter. Contact Yoke Meng at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Serving the community
[Due to Covid-19, the activities have been put on hold.]
Some of the women also partner with the Gladiolus’ Place, which is just across from GBC. These women provide home-cooked dinners and interact with the girls once a month on the last Tuesday evenings of the month. They also organise monthly Sunday lunches for small groups of girls, to be hosted by families and small groups from GBC. There's also the opportunity to host the girls twice a year for a full day of activities and interactions at GBC.
If you are interested in serving in this area, please contact Grace (Tuesday dinners) at email@example.com, Yuh Jane (Sunday Lunches) at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Pastor Ollie at email@example.com.
