The women’s work at Emmanuel comes under the name Flourish. Different events are organised throughout the year which allow women of all ages to enjoy fellowship. This provides women with the opportunity to support and encourage one another as they study God’s word and pray together.

Shirley takes the lead in organising flourish. She is married to Colin and they have four grown up children. She works as a care assistant in a residential home for people with dementia. She loves walking, fitness training and meeting friends for lots of coffee!
