We long to see women in our church family and beyond coming to Christ and growing to maturity. Dundonald has a range of ministries that seek to encourage women to understand, respond to, and apply the life-giving gospel of Jesus in every aspect of their lives. We all benefit as the women in our family pass on to other women their gospel convictions, and the wisdom of what it looks like to live these out as a disciple of Jesus in the 21st Century.
Our Women's ministry is led by Genevieve Johnston.

Stepping Stones

Stepping Stones was launched in 2020 as a small playgroup for local families with pre-schoolers (under 3s). We aren’t currently running this group but are looking forward to opening this or something like it again when circumstances permit as it was a highlight of the week for those families who came. The group is run by a team from Dundonald Church whose aim is to host a warm, welcoming playgroup with great toys for the 0-3s and great coffee and cake for the parents.  Each week we end the session with a fun time of singing and a true story from the Bible.

First Steps

First Steps is a monthly group for new mums with babies aged up to 12 months. The aim of this group is to enable new mums (whether from Dundonald Church or our local community), to meet together to build friendships and to encourage one another in the new role of motherhood. The mornings include an opportunity to have a catch up chat over coffee, hear from a more experienced mum and have a bit of discussion over what she’s shared. We’ll also open up the Bible for some encouragement and wisdom.

For the timebeing, these monthly meetings are taking place on Zoom so do email first.steps@dundonald.org if you would like to receive details about joining the next session or click through on the links below to sign up to attend.

Termly Women’s breakfasts

We host termly breakfast events for women from across our church family to get together.  We open up the Bible, have a short time of teaching and opportunity to discuss the same in small, cross-congregational groups.  We’ll hopefully hear testimonies each time, share our personal experiences and pray for each other.

Saturday 17 April 8:30-9:30am
