Women’s Ministry

We have many Small Groups for Women at St Jude’s that meet regularly, some mixed with men, others just women, still others with and without kids, during the day and in the evening to suit a range of needs in our church community. Our weekly open Women’s Bible Study is a good place to start, or have a look at our small groups page to find a group that would suit you. You can also  contact the office for more information about a group that suits your needs.

Wednesday Women’s Bible Study

Each Wednesday between 10am and 12 noon we meet by the open fire in the church foyer for bible study, friendship and prayer. Women of all ages and stages in their walk with Jesus attend this group from university students to retirees. For women with children they can attend while their young children are cared for in a crèche. We meet for morning tea at 10am and start bible study at 10.30am.
