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.
The women's ministry team put on an outreach event once a term and also an in-house equipping event once a term. Do look out for details.
There are also many women who meet to read the Bible 1:1. If you are interested in doing this please do have a word with Liz Turton, or email her here.
Connect 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.
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.
As part of our mission as a church we want to equip women to love Christ wholeheartedly and to live out the gospel in all of life. In order to do this we put on an event each term where we study his word, share how God is working in our lives, pray and encourage one another. Our next equipping breakfast will be on November 11th 2017 from 8.00-10.30 am.
A 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.
For Autumn 2017 our book is The Joy of Service by Julian Hardyman. Self denial and sacrifice are unpopular ideas in our culture. Even as Christians, it can be all too easy to make temporary happiness our goal. We can doubt that the call to take up our cross and follow Jesus is actually for our good. In this honest book, experienced pastor Julian Hardyman discusses the relationship between serving, ministry and joy. He writes openly of how his own experience of suffering has shaped his ministry. He explains that pain and suffering are not only to be expected, but are the tools that God uses to equip us to serve others joyfully.
We will be meeting on Thursday, October 12th 10.00-11.30 am to discuss the book. Do feel free to join us or to just read the book!
