What we do for women
At St John's we aim to provide friendship, support and encouragement in the name of Jesus Christ for women of all ages.
Jigsaw is a weekly Bible study group for women of all ages. It meets every Tuesday morning during term time in St. John’s Church Centre.
Coffee is served from 10am, and Bible study is from 10:30-11:30. There is a crèche for pre-school children. Lunch is available from 12:00 for anyone who wants to stay and share fellowship.
Ladies' Fellowship meets every Wednesday afternoon at 2pm in the Church Centre.
A time of friendship, learning and fun. We start with singing, and then usually listen to a guest speaker. There is sometimes an activity and plenty of chance to enjoy fellowship together and have a cup of tea. Do join us!
Ladies' Meal takes place on the third Thursday of every month.
Many of the women from St John's - and their friends - get together to enjoy a meal. We use a variety of different venues, including 'The Indian' in Castle, local pubs and our own Church Centre. Anybody is welcome, please do come along, we would love to meet you, especially if you are new to St John's or just new to the area.
For special events in the Church Centre we invite a guest speaker to share a Christian message. These are usually in April, July and December.
1:1 Discipleship Partnerships
1:1 Discipleship Partnerships are for people who are serious about their spiritual growth and want to commit to praying and reading the Bible with somebody else.

We also have guidelines for making the most out of a discipleship partnership and tips for effective Bible study and prayer times - all downloadable below.

We aim to bring together everyone who is in a Discipleship Partnership every other term to share experiences and progress. Partnerships can be changed on a yearly basis.
