Open Circle has been part of Selly Oak Methodist Church, for over 40 years, following the closure of the then ‘Young Wives’ group, which had started in 1959. As the name implies the Circle is ‘open’ to all women who wish to join us, whether they belong to our church, another church, or live in the local community.
We are a thriving group of ladies of mixed age range with an average of 35 ladies at each meeting. We meet regularly for most of the year on alternating Wednesday evenings at 7.45pm in the church lounge, where a varied programme takes place providing fellowship, education, fun, and thought provoking subjects. We also provide care and support for each other.
We have a fund raising event during the year which enables us, with other funds, to donate to various local charities i.e. Edwards Trust, St. Mary’s Hospice, Leukaemia Research.
We also have an annual coach trip to an interesting venue.
New members are always welcome, so why not come along and join us.
