Twice a month, women are invited to attend Women's Fellowship at The Salvation Army Camberwell. The fellowship is based around art and craft activities and also exists to provide specific support to members of the church and wider community.
Some of the fun activities conducted in this fellowship are listed below.
Prayer Quilt Ministry
Can you touch a prayer? Can you pull it close and feel its comfort? You can if it's part of a prayer quilt.
The idea behind these beautiful prayer quilts is simple, yet powerful. A heavy thread is used to take stitches through the quilt layers, and the ends are left free to be tied with a square knot. As each knot is tied, a silent prayer is offered for someone in special need - someone who has asked us to pray for them. The quilt is then given to that person.
What makes each quilt so special is not the pattern, colour or workmanship, but that the fact that prayer is symbolically tied to each one. The comforters are a statement of faith, and a testimony to our belief in God and in the power of prayer.
Through our prayer quilt ministry, a number of quilts have been distributed, each a special gift of love. They have been made for sick babies, for terminally ill patients, for adults and children facing surgery or difficult family situations - for many reasons, but each for someone in special need of the healing power of prayer.
