House groups

There are three house groups that meet regularly in people's homes. They provide an opportunity to study the Bible or explore other issues during a time of fellowship in informal surroundings.

Monday, 7.30 pm — Rowanfield fellowship group: by arrangement
Wednesday, 7.30 pm — Benhall Housegroup: first Wednesday of the month
Thursday, 2 or 7.30 pm — Harp Hill Housegroup: every three weeks

Tuesday Fellowship

Meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month from October to April at St Mark's in the small hall. The programme, which consists of suggestions from the membership, is as varied as possible, and is structured around four devotional meetings during the year. Every year one or two sessions are devoted to a charitable cause.

All are welcome, and new faces are especially good to see. You can come for a single meeting, or for many.

Friday Club

Friday Club provides a service to members of the church and the wider community, whereby they can meet in an informal setting to enjoy an afternoon together. We meet in the church hall on the first Friday in the month from 2.30 to 4 pm. The club is for those who are looking for friendship in the community.

The afternoon starts with a varied programme of entertainment, such as choirs, instrumentalists, or talks. There is then a short prayer, followed by a cup of tea with cakes, and a chance to chat with friends old and new. We have a shop selling a variety of sweets, chocolate, greetings cards, and books.

If you are interested in coming along, either as a member or a helper, please contact us via <> or call in one Friday – you will be most welcome.

Monica's Art Group

This group meets for two hours in the church hall fortnightly on Thursdays from 10.30 am, to do botanical art, drawing from specimens available at the time of year. It is also a fellowship time.

Tuesday Coffee Morning

All are welcome to our weekly coffee mornings on Tuesdays from 10 am to 12 noon.

You can have free coffee (or tea) and a piece of cake. This is a chance for the people of our church and neighbourhood to meet in a relaxed atmosphere, and have a chat and a brew together. You can stay for the whole of the two hours or just drop in for a short time.
