Tuesday Together

Tuesday Together meets on alternate Tuesdays during term-time from 10.30 am when we gather for tea/coffee and chat, followed at 11.00 am by a varied programme of entertainment e.g. visits from our local primary school choir, talks by various charities, quizzes and lots more (see our current programme below). We conclude with a short ‘Thought for the day’ followed by a delicious two-course lunch at 12.30 pm. Seniors are invited to come along at any time but booking for the lunch is recommended - please ring the Church Office on 0117 962 9990 - and costs £5.00 (some of our guests just join us for lunch)

Activities for seniors

There are a substantial number of seniors among our church community, who regularly share in worship time together on a Sunday. However, we are always happy to welcome non–church attenders to share in our other activities. We try to meet the social and spiritual needs of our senior friends and we have a Focus Group for Seniors that oversees their needs within our church community. (Focus group members: Sheila Cooper, Liz Dawson, Phil Heard, Carol Symes, Gay Wale, Jenny Witts)

Praise at 3 o’clock takes place on one Sunday afternoon each month. We meet in the Church Foyer from 3pm and sing our favourite hymns (old and new) for about 45mins, sometimes sharing the memories they evoke..... Our time together includes some informal worship, then we enjoy tea and cakes together. So come along and enjoy a time of informal worship singing your favourite hymns!

Next date is: 9th June 2019

With any queries regarding any of these activities, please ring Sheila Cooper on 0117 962 0618 or Liz Dawson on 0117 962 9405.
