All meetings at St Augustine's Church Hall unless otherwise listed
Our robed choir sings every Sunday morning at the 9.15am Holy Communion service. New members are always welcome and you need no experience. Choir rehearsals take place on Fridays from 7.30pm to 8.15pm. They are friendly, informal rehearsals and members enjoy learning new music.
If you are interested in joining the choir, do get in touch (see the Contact Us page)
Do you wake up on the second Wednesday in the month and wish you had somewhere to go?
Are you aged 50+ ?
Well maybe we can fit the bill!
Open House meets on the second Wednesday in each month at 2.15pm. Apart from occasionally going out for a meal, we meet in St Augustine's Church Hall.
We have tea and coffee and conversation as well as a guest speaker. Recently we've heard experts on subjects as far-ranging as Greyhound Rescue, Flanders & Swann and the Fishermen's Mission.
Open House meetings are such warm, friendly places to spend time together and anyone who would like to come along will be made most welcome.
The Theology Reading Group used to meet to discuss a given book at the same time each month. However, during 2017 we're going to try something more flexible. Below is the list of suggested reading for the whole year, so you can see what might be of interest. And then if, having read the book, you'd like to meet to discuss it with others, a meeting can be arranged for those who would like to come, at a mutually convenient time and location. To let us know that you'd be interested in talking about any of the books, let Angela Thomas know (email her here).
