Activities for all
There are a number of special-interest groups within our Church who provide a range of activities to entertain, exercise the mind and, in some instances, the body too! In addition to fellowship these activities also reinforce our underlying ethos to be mindful of the needs of others both in thought and in deed. They are intentionally accessible and form a substantial part of our vision of ‘A Church without Walls’.
Refreshments are provided at all meetings and several of the groups arrange periodic outings and annual meals for their members.
Coffee Morning & Place of Welcome
Tuesday morning at 10.30am
A welcome awaits at our weekly coffee morning in the Parlour where a refreshing cup of coffee or tea with biscuits or a slice of cake may be enjoyed. This is a great opportunity to enjoy convivial company and informal conversation, and to find out more about our Church and the many activities within and beyond our walls.
1st & 3rd Thursday mornings of the month from 10.30am until noon
An informal talks and discussion session where topics of social concern within our communities and beyond are considered along with occasional lighter themes. Visiting speakers frequently give talks and presentations on a wide range of subjects and a deep well of knowledge also exists within our own ranks with members sharing their experiences concerning working life, voluntary work, travel, hobbies, music, sporting achievements and the like. The Forum also contributes periodically to the regular Church services and occasionally mounts its own special services based on themes pertinent to today’s world.
1st Tuesday evening of the month at 7.30pm
Fellowship and fun for women of all ages with discussions and talks by guest speakers on topics many and varied, light and serious. The programme also includes occasional quiz nights and special events to celebrate Christmas and Easter.
