The Gathering

  • River City Church 7950 Belfort Pkwy Jacksonville United States (map)

Welcome to The Gathering! We are a sisterhood called to rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep. The Gathering is an event for women to come together for a night of connection and encouragement through worship, teaching, and ministry. Join us as guest speaker Niki Hardy, co-founder of our sister church in Charlotte, N.C. , shares her story, filled with raw honesty, life-giving hope, practical help, and the humor we need when life falls apart.

More about Niki

Niki Hardy is a Brit in the USA, rectal (yes, rectal) cancer Thriver, pastor’s wife, tea drinker, and teller of bad jokes. Her speaking and writing offers encouragement, truth, practical resources, and a humorous dollop of reality so you can thrive, no matter what life throws at you. If she can’t hug you in person, she’d love to connect with you and hopefully hear your story at

Educated in Oxford, England, she now lives in Charlotte, NC with her family. Her work has appeared in Christian Today, RELEVANT Magazine, Woman to Woman (Premier Radio), ThriveMom, and Living By Design Ministries. When she’s not speaking, writing, or running trails with her Doodles, you can find her with a nice cup of tea, trying to figure out which remote control actually turns the TV on.
