Essence was started by Gill Broadfoot who, when it first started, commented:
"God's timing is always perfect and I believe He inspired me and gave me the passion I needed to branch out and set up a ministry for women with the aim of supporting, encouraging and helping each other. My vision is that women will come together and through that will spend time with each other. There will be informal times, times of teaching, fun times, more formal gatherings and anything else that God leads us to."
Gill adds that the name 'Essence' was "God-given", and explains,
"The word brings to mind perfume or fragrance that permeates the surrounding area, in the Bible perfume was used to annoint Jesus and I was left thinking of the fragrance that must have filled the room where He was, in the same way I hope that we will reflect the fragrance of Jesus as we come together."
