Milk & Honey, a non-for profit organisation and online hub for young women launched their inaugural event ‘The Precious Conference’ over the weekend.
St Mary’s Church in Marylebone opened their doors to young women aged 16 to 25 for a day of sisterhood, worship and empowerment.
The conference supports the ‘I Am Precious Campaign’, a movement by Milk and Honey that strives to tackle the common societal pressures that 21st century women face.
Guest speakers delivered hard hitting testimonies of how God has used them to win souls, and the spiritual nourishment they have received as a result of their choice to surrender.
Hannah Thompson, a support worker from Mercy Ministries, shared her story of how God turned her life around and helped her realise the importance of acknowledging self-worth.
She explained the importance of surrendering to God and discarding the past.
“No matter what your past may look like, no matter what hurt, what thing you’re ashamed of, God is alive in you. When he looks at you, he sees you as pure, he sees you as a new creation,” she said.
