Wombourne Wives Group

Church Wives Christmas LunchWho are we?

We are group of ladies, many of whom attend services at either St Benedict Biscop or the Venerable Bede churches in Wombourne.  The group meets on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at the Venerable Bede Hall in Giggetty Lane, Wombourne WV5 9ED.  Our meetings commence promptly at 8.00 pm.  Visitors are always made welcome.

What do we do?

Once the meeting has been formally opened and any outstanding administration and organisational matters addressed, a speaker for the evening is introduced, who then presents their talk, followed by a question and answer session.  The evening concludes with coffee and biscuits and general conversation – the atmosphere is very informal.  In addition to the meetings, members and their spouses, or partners are able to take advantage of an annual, long weekend break by coach, to an area of interest within the UK.
