Here are some of the things that happen as part of our ministry to women at All Saints. You will find regular groups, occasional events, mentoring opportunities as well as resources that we have produced or recorded from previous events. If you would like to talk to someone about what is on offer, Antonia Easley would love to hear from you. Email her on firstname.lastname@example.org
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:
Antonia Easley (Chair)
There are two events to look forward to this autumn term 2021. Both will be cafe style and held in the church.

Saturday 4th December from 8-9.30pm.
A Christmassy occasion to invite a friend to. Trish Scobell from All Saints Crowborough will be our guest speaker.
Women's Weekend Away
6th - 8th May 2022, Horsley Park - click for more info and booking...
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.

Deeper Still - Linda Allcock, May 2021
Although we were sad not to be able to hold our weekend away this year, we asked our planned speaker, Linda Allcock to come and share with us about her recent new book on Biblical Meditation called 'Deeper Still'. To hear an interview with Linda, a talk by her about biblical meditation followed by some questions for reflection, please click below.
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.
