If you are interested in joining any of these friendly groups at All Saints’, or would like to find out more, please get in touch. Some of these groups are currently suspended for Covid safety reasons.
Chat and Do
The 'Chat and Do' Club meets on the third Thursday of each month, between 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm in the Paynter Room in the Church Centre. Our members bring a variety of craftwork or activities such as embroidery, knitting, sewing or cardmaking, although some people just come for the chat! This is a lovely friendly group with lots of fun and laughter.
Cuppa and Chat Club
The 'Cuppa and Chat' Club meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month, between 2.30 pm and 3.30 pm in the Paynter Room in the Church Centre. This group was formed to provide support and companionship for mainly older men and women in the parish, and transport can be provided. The Club enables our guests to form friendships and share their news over a cup of tea and homemade cake, with the opportunity for a private chat if required.
We have several Home Groups, where people meet regularly in someone’s home in a friendly, caring and supportive group, to explore different aspects of the Christian faith and the Bible, and what this means for everyday living. The groups meet at different times on different days, so if you would like to join a Home Group please let us know which days or evenings you are free.
Our Lunch Club meets on the first Saturday of each month in the Hall of the Church Centre where, for a small charge, our guests enjoy a home-cooked two course meal, followed by coffee. The club is mainly for people in the parish who live alone or have mobility problems and who enjoy, and benefit from, the company and friendship that the club offers. Transport can be provided and new guests are always welcome.
The Mothers’ Union is open to all Christian women and men, and it aims to promote Christian family life and family care. All Saints’ branch of the Mothers’ Union welcomes new members.
At 7.30pm on the first Wednesday of each month, the Prayer Team leads a prayer meeting in the Church Centre, to pray for our community, the world, and the church. We also lead meditations, including during the special times of Advent and Lent. All are welcome to join us and to share in the church’s prayer life.
This very friendly group is open to all women of any faith or none, and there is always a warm welcome for newcomers. We meet at 2.30 pm on the second Thursday of each month (apart from August) in the Church Centre. After a brief service we normally have an outside speaker to talk about their particular interest, followed by refreshments.
