We meet fortnightly at 2.30p.m. on a Tuesday afternoon in the church hall. We number 18 members, mostly ‘ladies of more mature years’, but have been delighted in recent months to welcome a number of gentlemen. We are, of course, always pleased to welcome new members, younger or older and occasional visitors. Our meetings usually begin with a hymn, Bible reading and prayers, followed by an address by our invited speaker, finishing with another hymn and the blessing, and of course, tea and biscuits. We have a varied programme and every few weeks a bring-and-buy stall, the proceeds of which are donated to various charities, as agreed at our AGM.
Some highlights from our last programme include ‘Favourite Hymns’ with Maureen Lake, ‘Special Needs Children’ with Tony Severn, ‘How I came to be here’ with Rev. Alice Venning, ‘Action for Children’ with Madeleine Clarke, a ‘Christmas Celebration’ with Rev. Geoff and Mrs Lesley Hunter, ‘Thoughts for the New Year’ with Rev. Dr. Martin Wellings, ‘Miracles’ with Hope Price, ‘St. Valentine’s Day’ with Rev. Philip Beuzeval, ‘Emmaus Homelessness Community with Jon Robson, ‘Music for Spring’ with Margaret Hill and Lin Treharne and ‘Holy Week’ with Rev. Alison Mares. We always enjoy a treat and thanks go to Gill Neller for cooking us delicious lunches, one for Thanksgiving last November and one for Shrove Tuesday in February.
