For those of you who missed the women's breakfast on Saturday 21st November. You are now able to view this on YouTube.
Hannah Bowring's talk is well worth watching . She mentioned some great resources, quotes and bible references. Here are a few you might like to explore further:
- Walter Bruegemman's The Prophetic Imagination
- The Hopeful Activist Podcast
- Sister Joan Chittister

We would love to hear any feedback you have to share. Please do send us your thoughts on how it went for you and how we can make it even better next time!
We are not yet sure when the women's breakfast will be. We aim for one a term so perhaps we will see you in the New Year - either face to face or online.
