With the pressure of singleness, then for many the pressures of home and children with the isolation that this brings, the possibility of coping as a single parent, and the joys and responsibilities of being grand-parents, many women face difficulties that are unique to women and need a particular ministry.
In order to support and encourage women in Street Baptist Church, and enable them to be built up in Christ and use every opportunity to reach out to their friends, we provide a number of activities and events that are specifically designed with women in mind.
The following pages provide details of the women’s ministries we are establishing in the church.
Everywoman is a group for every woman! Our vision is to equip, empower and enrich one another as together we grow in the knowledge and love of Jesus.
We come together – a group of ordinary women, to have fun, develop friendships, share, listen and encourage each other.

Ladies Bible Study
Many women are unable to join in a Home Group because of child-care commitments or work commitments. To provide support and fellowship for women, and to provide Bible Study on topics that are particularly important for women, we have the Ladies Bible Study.Women of all ages (if child-minding is a problem; pre-school children are welcome too), from all backgrounds and regardless of where you are in your walk with the Lord are very warmly welcome and encouraged to join us at our Bible study which takes place at 10am-12pm every other Friday. We normally meet in Steph Hall’s house (7, Housman Road, Street, Somerset. BA16 0SB) but please check the current church notice sheet for the location.
In 1 Thessalonians 5:9-11 God calls all of us to walk more closely with Him. He desires that we might continually know the fullness of His Holy Spirit, and so He encourages us to be active in building one another up. He desires to feed us with His spiritual food – His Word – and so encourages us to teach one another. Our hunger for Him is only truly satisfied when we are fed by Him!
So, come on Ladies! Let’s get together and learn more about God. Let’s live for Him, encouraging one another as we learn from His word and apply it in the ups & downs of life, and let’s allow God to lead us as we seek to live each day for Him.
For ladies living in the villages to the south of Street, or those who no longer have child-care commitments but are available during the day, we provide a weekly Bible Study in which we seek to study through a book of the Bible so that we can encourage one another and grow together in the Lord.
This session we will be studying through a series of studies entitled “entitled “Full of promise”, which will take us through the Old Testament to provide an overview of the Old Testament and help us see the wonderful story of God’s plan of salvation for His people worked out over the millenia before God’s promise was fulfilled in the coming of Jesus as Messiah.
This group is one of two Ladies’ Bible Study groups – the other one being held in Street bi-weekly on Friday mornings. The Street group is more appropriate for young mothers with children and other ladies who would wish to support them in their walk with the Lord and grow in God with them, or for ladies who live in the Street area.
