Women

There are a number of great opportunities for women to meet other women of all ages from the church family, to build new friendships and strengthen and encourage each other. 

Some events are regular and you can find details of these below.  Others are occasional meetings which include crafts, a film night, meals and other social events. Details can be found on our Future Events page when available.

For further information about any of these activities please email Liz Turton.

Connect

ConnectConnect is our weekly Bible Study for women of all ages held every term-time Tuesday morning from 10.00 to 11.30 am at LCBC with coffee, Bible study and prayer. A crèche is provided for those with young children.

Thame Ladies Bible Study

This group follows a similar format to Connect but meets in members' homes in Thame at 10.00am on a Monday morning .

Women's Breakfasts

Several times each year we meet on a Saturday morning at LCBC for breakfast together, before listening to a guest speaker talk about an aspect of the Christian faith or their own personal experience of Christianity.  All are welcome to join.

We also have occasional Curry Nights.

See Future Events for details of the next Women's Breakfast or Curry Night.

Women's conferences

Every two years the women of LCBC have the opportunity to gather for a day of Bible teaching, encouragement and practical equipping for growing in our faith in Jesus. This day is open to all women no matter what age or stage of life. 

The most recent conference took place at LCBC in March 2016.  You can read our NewsBlog post about it here.

Women's Book Club

ForgivenessA number of women in the church meet once each half-term to discuss a book in an informal setting over refreshments.  A variety of different Christian books are read including biographies, fiction, Christian living. 

This is not just a book club to discuss a book on an intellectual level but a place where women come together to challenge, encourage and pray for one another about how they can put the lessons they've learnt into practice in their lives.

Books read so far include Forgiveness by Julia Marsden, Dangerously Alive by Simon Guillebaud, Compared to her by Sophie de Witt and The freedom of self forgetfulness by Tim Keller.

For summer 2017 our book is Barbara, come back by John Miller. It is an inspiring account of a prodigal daughter's return to faith and her reconciliation with her father. It is a moving story written by both the father and daughter and is a great encouragement to those of us who have prodigals. 

Reviews of books read are sometimes published in the NewsBlog. Here are some previous ones:
