Branch Meetings

Our Branch meets in the Church Hall on the 3RD WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH at 2pm.

We have around 20 members, and are a friendly group. Each month we usually have a speaker or we sometimes enjoy a trip out. We are happy to arrange transport for our members if needed.

Other Activities

We hold two Coffee mornings each year in the Town Hall, and the Deanary M.U. Advent Service. We celebrate the annual ‘Women’s World Day of Prayer’ together with member churches of ‘Downham Market & District Churches Together’ — St. Dominic’s Catholic Church, The Salvation Army, DMkt Methodist Church, DMkt Christian Fellowship and St. Mary’s Parish Church, Wimbotsham, each hosting the Service in turn.

New Members

New members are always welcome, including from other parishes within the District which no longer have a branch of their own.
