Activities

We have a variety of regular, small group activities that take place on a weekly or monthly basis. These are attended by church members as well as others and are welcome to all.

Oasis of Calm Wednesdays (except 1st Wed of month) from 1.00 to 1.45pm
Take time out of a busy week, a chance to sit quietly, enjoy some silence, tranquil music and contemplative readings. Only have a few minutes to spare? Don't worry - stay for as long as you wish. We will not disturb your private reflections, but will be pleased to talk with you if you desire.


Quiet Time First Wednesday of month between 1 and 2pm
Time for reflective music and silence, plus a speaker chosen from a range of faith traditions and local organisations. Followed by tea and coffee.


Bookstall-Social Call Second Saturday of month between 2 and 4pm
Games to play, tea to drink, friends to make and books to buy! All proceeds go to Samaritans and Smile.


Green Team Third Wednesday of month between 11am and 12.30pm
We work towards making our church more eco-friendly as well as taking part in local and national environmental campaigns. Recent projects include planting insect-friendly plants in our church garden and improving our recycling facilities.


Mindfulness@Lunchtime First Tuesday of month between 1 and 2pm
A chance to practise meditation and mindful eating in the company of others. Please bring food to share.


Poetry Group Monthly - see What's On or newsletter for details
An informal group, held together by a simple practice of having several themes and usually one particular poet, agreed between us in advance. We read in turn around the circle and make ad lib comments - but a shared enjoyment of the poems is paramount.


Spiritual Book Group Meets occasionally - see What's On or newsletter for details
A book is chosen for discussion on the basis of the spiritual insights or inspiration which it has given to the chooser. So far we have discussed Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress, Kingsley's The Water Babies and Erich Fromm's The Art of Loving.
