After a truly engaging and inspiring time with Gemma last year, we are delighted that she is returning with more to share at Bountiful 2019.

Fun loving, enthusiastic TV presenter Gemma Hunt has worked in television for 15 years, hosting children’s shows for the BBC as well as Christian events such as festivals (Spring Harvest, New Wine, Big Church Day Out) and the Alpha Film series. Gemma has moved from the West Country to London to Kent and experienced a whole heap of churches (Baptist, Anglican, Home Churches, Apostolic) on her journey.

Gemma has many stories to share. Her life has taken many different directions which have given her lots of insight and experience in things that will surprise and interest you. But through it all, Gemma’s faith in Jesus has kept her strong against the odds: relationship traumas, parental disappointments, homelessness, Gemma has faced them all. But, God has gifted her with the talents, abilities and wisdom as well as an army of friends and family, to bring her through and keep her going with a successful career and a smile on her face.

Workshop: Walk taller – Claire Musters
Do you know that you are made worthy through Christ, but sometimes struggle to truly believe that and live in the light of it? Claire Musters shares honestly about her own difficulties with low self-worth, the journey she has been on to truly understand God’s love for her and the tools she has found helpful in the daily fight to stand firm in our identity as women of God. The world is constantly telling us who we should be, and pointing out what we lack, but we truly can rest in the knowledge that we are His beloved, worthy daughters and enjoy being who he made us to be.

Workshop: Persistent promise – Helen Thorne
Many of us see ourselves through the lens of our past – imaging we are useless, unloveable or worse. Many of us see God through that same lens and suspect he isn’t quite as sovereign or good as the Bible says. Join us as we look at Ephesians 1 to discover who God truly is and who we are in Christ and in the process find real hope for a joyful and fruitful life.

Workshop: Precious rubbish – Melinda Wells
After spending her formative years under the influence of people trying to convince her she was garbage, Melinda Wells was able to change that when she accepted that being “Made worthy” for her was Jesus taking the garbage out of her soul and filling the space
with gold. Knowing she is precious and valuable effects how she treats herself and other people. She comes at life from a place of knowing she has something valuable to give and lives looking to encourage and lift those around her. In this workshop she will seek to share her insight into living a life by faith, and, by way of questions and answers to give you the practical tools and equipment to put into practice in your own daily walk with God.

Keynote speaker: Gemma Hunt
“Made worthy” is at the core of who we are, it is God’s design for us. He loves us, is proud of us and created us in His image. But, we get in the way of that. We allow others to get in the way of that and sometimes, we allow the way we perceive God as a father to get in the way of that too. As a result we suffer, either openly or inwardly or both. As women, we have a great capacity to cope or appear to be coping because we do NOT want to loose face or appear to be a fraud. We need to allow God to speak in to these insecurities and speak His love and truth in to our deepest places. He’s done it for countless people in the Bible and in those around us, so why not us? When we realise our true worth, we let the pressure off ourselves and can enjoy life in all its fullness as God intended.
