Welcome to Girls Night Out! We are women from Gordon Church and friends and family. We are all ages and different backgrounds. Our reasons are: to engage in a variety of activities both at the church and in our neighbourhoods, to share
our joy and challenges of life and learn and grow as women, to hold one another up in prayer and especially
to laugh ! Please come and join us, usually the last Monday of each month at 7:00pm. If you need a ride, just let us know.
We have a number of people in the congregation who take turns welcoming worshippers to our church service as they enter the building.
