Connect Mums

Connect Mums meets in Christ Church with our children from 9:45-11:30am on Wednesday mornings during term time. We warmly welcome mothers-to-be, mums with new babies and mums with school age children. We seek to form a sense of community where we share friendship and support one another. We explore ways of developing a greater sense of God at work in our lives and our relationship with Jesus. Connect Mums is run by Esther our Children and Families Minister who can be contacted at estherwhittleseareed@gmail.com.

Connect Mums is a welcoming environment where we nurture one another as Christian parents and where we share our faith, joys, challenges and find peace in a caring and inspiring space. The group enjoys a strong sense of community and fellowship from the simple act of sharing ‘our week’ and ‘our lives’ with each other, enjoying a cuppa and biscuit, exploring the bible, praying together and being of mutual support and encouragement on life’s journey.

As ‘Mums’ we do talk about our role as mothers, but we also seek to ensure that we retain our own identities. As Christian parents we discuss and explore together how the home can become a place in which our children are nurtured into the reality of God’s presence and love. We seek to build up and nurture our own relationship with God so we are equipped to share and encourage our children to grow in their own relationship with God.

We seek to provide an opportunity for Mums to meet and support one another, encounter God together and encourage a safe place where we share and learn from each other. Our group is a safe, non-judgemental, empathetic space where kindness, encouragement, laughter, patience, wisdom and happiness are key elements and where we can explore our own Christian discipleship and have sense of connection and belonging.
