The Ladies Breakfast Book Club was started in early 2014 with the intention of bringing together ladies of all ages to discuss Christian books of different styles and genres. We meet from 8:30 – 10:00 am on a Saturday morning every few weeks for coffee, croissants, fellowship and, of course, conversations about our latest book.
If you’d like to know more, please do get in touch via this website and you’ll hear back from us shortly.

We are currently reading Being The Bad Guys by Stephen McAlpine. We will be discussing this book at our next meeting, on 27 November 2021.
The church used to be recognised as a force for good, but this is changing rapidly. Christians are now often seen as the bad guys, losing both respect and influence.
In our post-Christian culture, how do we offer the gospel to those around us who view it as not only wrong but possibly dangerous? And how do we ensure that the secular worldview does not entice us away with its constant barrage, online and elsewhere, of messages about self-determinism?
Author Stephen McAlpine offers an analysis of how our culture ended up this way and explains key points of tension between biblical Christianity and secular culture. He encourages Christians not to be ashamed of the gospel as it is more liberating, fulfilling and joyful than anything the world has to offer. He also offers strategies for coping in this world, with its opposing values, and for reaching out to others wisely with the truth.
