Agnes Maude Royden (November 23, 1876-July 30, 1956) was a preacher and suffragette.

She was born at Mossley Hill, Liverpool, the daughter of Sir Thomas Bland Royden, 1st Bart., of Frankby Hall, Birkenhead. She was educated at Cheltenham Ladies' College and Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, and afterwards for some years did settlement work in Liverpool.

She also lectured on English literature for the university extension movement, and in 1909 was elected to the executive committee of the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies. From 1912 to 1914 she edited the Common Cause, the organ of the union. Miss Royden became well known as a speaker on social and religious subjects, and in 1917 became assistant preacher at the City Temple, being thus the first woman to occupy this office.

After World War I, Royden's interest shifted to the role of women in the Church. Royden made several world-wide preaching tours from the 1920s to the 1940s.
