Women@St John’s

The Women’s Team organise lot’s of opportunities for women to meet together. There are Women’s BreakfastsEvening WalksQuiz nights and other social events also enable women to have a break from the normal routine and develop friendships within the community. There are regular opportunities for meeting together to study the Bible and to be encouraged by hearing how others have overcome difficulties and gain support and strength from one another through our Testimony Evenings.

Women’s Book Group meets monthly to discuss a chapter or two of the current book. Contact Becky Lee or Ruth Atkin for more information and how to join the group (details available from the Church Office).

The Women’s Conference held on 15 September 2018 was enjoyed by all the women who came along. Our speaker was Christine Perkin, who is an associate pastor and leads alongside her husband, Paul, at St Mark’s Battersea in London, and the daughter of one of our church members! Christine talked about three women in the Bible who had encounters with Jesus and encouraged us in our own relationship with Him. There were seminars on friendship, family life and prayer, as well as lots of time for sharing, chatting, eating and drinking coffee!
