The Women's Worship Circle was founded in 1993, largely by women who were connected to St. Paul Seminary at the University of St. Thomas in St. Thomas, Minnesota. Many of the early members had attended the Re-Imagining Conference that toook place in Minneapolis also in 1993.
Members divided the work of preparing church services, which were informed by Catholic and Lutheran liturgy. They met and had their services in the United Church of Christ Lyndale Church from December 1994 until 2000. The group disbanded in 2000.
