Thursday Morning Group

For those aged 50+

Last month 20 very chatty and friendly folk gathered for the first meeting of this Thursday Morning group. It was a great opportunity to spend an enjoyable morning meeting new people over a cuppa and a few specially made cup cakes.

The next gathering will take place on Thursday, 19th April, also from 10-11/11.30am. On this occasion we hope to confirm the following:

  • A name for the group. One suggestion is the Thursday Rendezvous group.
  • That the group will meet every 2 weeks after this date.
  • Details about the variety of short talks or presentations which we hope will happen at every other meeting of the group.

There is no cost but donations are welcome.

All those aged 50+ are welcome to come along and join us on 19th April. You are guaranteed a warm welcome and to feel a valued member of the group.

For more information please ask Sue Purbrick, Liz Burton, Carol Carter or Julian Patching.

Coming soon – Connect!

On Friday, 20th April Connect will start taking place at St John’s, every Friday from 7-9pm. It will be open to all those aged 11-18.

If you would like to volunteer (must be 18+) to help out at Connect or if you would just like to know more about Connect or any other of our plans for our young people, please speak to Julian Patching, our Community & Youth Pastor on 07535674594.

Men’s Breakfast – St Luke’s Hospice

Tired of eating sawdust covered in cold milk while you stare at the back of a paper on the other side of the breakfast table.  Well we can help you to change that with one of our men’s breakfast held at St John’s Church coffee bar on a saturday morning.

There you will be treated to a proper man’s breakfast of sausages, bacon, beans, mushrooms, fried bread, eggs, toast and tea/coffee.  You will also find fellow men ready to talk about the things that matter – world news, the latest gadget and who’s going to win the league.

From our Church Mag – March


….to those of you that told me off last month for not helping Jezebel rake up leaves in January. Let me tell you about my morning today. It is still year end at work and I have wall to wall auditors coming out of my ears. I’m spending so much time answering their questions at the expense of current work that I’ve had to bring stuff home with me this weekend. I also have art to do for daughter 2 (that’s Cainetta to you). She wants me to do her a muriel in her new gaff.
