Ladies, you're invited to our bible journaling event, 10am on the 27th of October at Camelon Community Centre! Bible journaling is a creative approach to exploring God’s word and many people find it a helpful approach to help them to explore, remember and apply scripture to their daily life.
This event is for everyone - seasoned artist or nervous novice! If you have a journaling bible, please bring it along, but if you don’t it won’t matter at all! All materials will be provided so don’t worry about bringing art supplies as we have plenty to go round. Throughout the morning there will be examples of how women in our own church have grown their understanding of the bible through journaling and also plenty of time for us to be creative.
There will be tea, coffee, pastries and chat for us to enjoy while we create. The event costs £2.50 and that will be payable on the day. Any questions feel free to get in touch - firstname.lastname@example.org
Our next Ladies event is our Ladies Night In on Saturday 29th of September (Camelon Community Centre- 7.30pm). We will have the opportunity to come together to share an evening of worship, hear a message from our very own Niki Jordaan and catch up with each other over dessert. We will also be having a collection of sanitary products to add to the storehouse ministry to bless women of our community who experience difficulty purchasing sanitary wear due to finances. Tickets are £5 and available at church on Sunday. If you have any questions, comment here or send a message. So looking forward to sharing this evening with you!
Well ladies, that’s craft night done for another year- and it just keeps getting better! Or so I’m reliably told… Friday evening was actually my first ever experience of the legendary Falkirk Vineyard ladies craft night. Despite being on the team last year unfortunately I couldn’t make the actual event, so having heard such wonderful things about previous years- I was very much looking forward to this year! So much so that in my giddy excitement and anticipation of the event I agreed to lead a craft table… need some jewellery stamped?! It turns out I’m not really your girl for the job… but you were all so kind to me and did a fabulous job stamping! Who knew hammers could cause such hilarity?!
As well as my hammering we had other much more proficient crafters offering decopatch, cross stitching, card making and beautiful colouring sheets. Thank you so much to those who led a craft table, we know how much time and effort goes into preparing for these events and we love your talents and were so blessed by the craft skills you shared.
This year we had 55 wonderful women who participated in crafting and we loved having you! And we’d really love to invite you to the four other events we have in our calendar:

As well as 55 crafters, this year we also had 7 stalls selling wonderful treats, treasures and gifts, including our own Eden pop up shop. The stalls added such a lovely atmosphere to the room both before and after the crafting and bonus- I finally started my Christmas shopping! Thank you so much to the stall holders, you really made this years event special.
We were also lucky to have such kind staff from the park hotel who really went out of there way to serve us and who even partook in a little festive shopping of their own. I’m sure the poor bar man will one day recover from the horror of me answering his question ‘of what type of bowls do you need?’ With – ‘well you know bowls. Just the kind of bowly bowls to put stuff into that you normally put into bowls.’ But you’ll be glad to know bowly bowls were provided and snacks consumed aplenty.
And when I wasn’t snacking I was watching and learning from our lovely Lyndsey. As always fabulous Lyndsey Henderson led our FV Ladies Ministry team so well to organise craft night. Tonight I am thanking God for Lyndsey’s leadership, commitment and heart for women in Falkirk Vineyard and beyond. I’m also praying for next years craft night and would love if you would pray along with me for guidance, wisdom, provision and for the women who will join us next year for an evening of festive crafting.
Thoughts, experiences, and encouragement from the ladies of Falkirk Vineyard.
