EMBRACE - An Event For Women Of Faith


The World Vision ‘Embrace’ series for women is finally underway! Please see the scrolling images on the homepage for all the up coming dates and venues or check the calendar. Dates run until November 2014. For more information about EMBRACE and the worship leaders involved please read below.

Ladies hope you can join us at one of the venues nearest you!

Embrace is a brand new event for women of all ages brought to you by World Vision.  Travelling around the country, it will bring women together for an inspiring and memorable evening. The evenings will primarily consist of praise & worship, mission, prayer and the spoken word all beautifully woven together. It’s our hope that all those who attend will be refreshed, re-energised and feel able to meet with God in a heartfelt way. Embrace will be hosted by World Vision Artist Ambassador Lara Martin who is best known for her songs ‘The Voice of Hope’ ‘God is Here’ and ‘Divine Exchange’ which are sung in congregations all across the world. She has made regular appearances on Songs of Praise and continues to equip churches through her role in The Kingdom Worship Movement.

At each event Lara will be joined on stage by three other worship leaders including top selling Christian artist Lou Fellingham, who features on countless Christian compilation albums and who is known widely for her stunning rendition of Stuart Townends ‘In Christ Alone’. Also joining Lara is Velveta Thompson of Beracah Music who has toured extensively with Graham Kendrick and along with her husband founded ‘Casx’, (Creative Arts School of Excellence) a training programme which provides opportunities for parents and their children to develop creatively. Another wonderful addition to the team is songwriter Donna Akodu who has penned anthems such as ‘Rain on me’ and ‘When Heaven Breaks In’. Donna has been leading worship for over 20 years and is the vocal director for The Kingdom Worship Movement here in the UK.

We’re also thrilled to welcome guest worship leaders Cath Woolridge (from Sound of Wales) and Nicki Sims (from Christian Growth International) who will be appearing with us at selected venues.
