You will find regular groups, occasional events, mentoring opportunities as well as resources that we have produced or recorded from previous events.

Seasons of Change
Over the coming months we will be launching a number of resources produced by women at All Saints to help encourage the whole church family. Initially we will be focusing on the theme of change - growing through God's faithfulness in every chapter.
Beckie, Sandra and Luci (February 2023)
It’s a joy when our church family grows as new people join us. We love the sense of vibrancy and excitement. But have you ever stopped to think what a big change it is for those people coming along? Bekie, Sandra and Luci are all new to our church family over the last two years. They represent different stages of life and have different challenges as they seek to integrate. I asked them questions to draw out their experiences, wisdom and longings. Do read and be encouraged. But also, be challenged and pray that our church family will be a place of warm welcome where people are drawn to the core of our family life around Jesus.
Diane's Story (May 2022)
Carol's Story (April 2022)
Carol is married to Robin, and they have three grown up boys. Having recently retired from a teaching career, she’s been reflecting on the changes she’s experienced and the things God has been teaching her.
Chrissy's Story (February 2022)
Patsy's Story (March 2022)
Chrissy is married to Mark and they have two children, Ethan and Seth. She is a part time teaching assistant and has been coming to All Saints for eight years. Chrissy shares with us here how God has helped her through the experience of losing both her parents in a short space of time.
Women's Weekend Away 2022
Please find links below to listen to or download the talks from our recent weekend away with Jenny Rees. You can also download a copy of the weekend away programme here. (PDF)
Women Together is our umbrella group bringing together women of all ages and stages from across All Saints Church.
Meeting about 6 times throughout the year, our events are a great opportunity for more conversation than we often have time for in church life. We get to know new people, build relationships and benefit from mutual support and encouragement. Some events are great to invite our non-Christian friends in the community to. Others are aimed at deepening our relationship with Jesus through testimony and talks.
Our events will be publicised in All Saints News and on our Women Together FB page. Also see below for coming events. The Women Together Committee comprises: Becky Cornwell, Antonia Easley (Chair), Katharine Hobby, Sarah Newnham and Carol Taylor.
Small group for women
This is a group for younger women, who struggle to get to an evening Connect Group meeting, on Monday mornings in the Tiger Lounge between 9.30am and 11am, term time only. Following the same themes as the rest of the church Connect Groups, this is an opportunity for close fellowship and nurturing in faith with other women at similar stages of life. We don't currently have a creche alongside this group.
Coffee Plus has been unable to run for the past year but will hopefully be back in September 2021. This is our group of young mums that meets on Thursday mornings in the Tiger Lounge with a creche for pre-school children. We enjoy a range of topical, relevant discussions, hearing people's stories, creative activities and of course, coffee and cake along with plenty of laughs and supportive friendship.
Named after Titus Chapter 2, where women who are more mature in their faith are encouraged to nurture those who are younger in their faith, this is our initiative to offer one to one mentoring relationship to women who would value this. We endeavour to find someone who will spend regular time with you, praying, reading the Bible or a Christian book and encouraging you in your walk with God. This is always an investment that results in mutual growth and blessings.
If you would value time to talk about things in confidence, that you feel unable to bring to a member of clergy, a group leader or a close friend, do make contact with Antonia Easley (email@example.com). She is happy to meet in the capacity of listening, coming alongside, spiritual support and prayer.

Advent Event, November 2020
The Women Together team would like to make the main elements of our reflections on Mary available to you for your personal devotional time this Advent. We based our session on Luke 1:26-38 and 46-55. Below you will find a video of reflections and links to two reflective songs and questions to think about.If you're part of a Titus women mentoring relationship, or in a small prayer group why not use it together.
