Women at St Mary's
Our aim in all we do is to encourage women in their love and service of Jesus and to equip them to share him with those around them.
Events for women include:
4pm Women's Weekend Away - 24th-25th April
We’d love you to join other women from the 4pm congregation on our weekend away at St Katharine’s, Parmoor, RG9 6NN in Henley-on-Thames. Timings are 5pm Friday 24th - 5pm Saturday 25th April, or just join us for the day from 9:30am-5pm on the Saturday.
It’s always a great time of fellowship, quiet reflection, friendship and growth in our faith, and this year our focus is “Using God’s story and my story to tell my friends about Jesus”, with teaching from Rachel Meynell and Laura Swain. Costs are £75 for the weekend or £20 for the day, and if you have any questions please contact .

Bible Study groups
We run regular day-time Bible study groups for women throughout the week. Whether you are a young mum or well into retirement age, a new Christian or someone who has followed Jesus for years, there is a Bible study for you! Some groups meet on Tuesday mornings at the church with a crèche, others in people's homes. There's time to look at God's word and pray for each other. Come and join us! Contact the church office for more info.
Held once a term with an external speaker, croissants, coffee, chat and an engaging talk.
