We are excited to offer the Wycliffe College Women’s Breakfast to churches and small groups who are looking for an easy way to encourage fellowship and learning in their Women’s Ministries. Is this something your church would be interested in? There is no cost for the livestream, so all you need to do is host a simple breakfast and get your guests there. We will have step-by-step instructions on how to access the live-stream and a detailed plan to help you run your very own Wycliffe College Women’s Breakfast!
