The Afternoon Guild is for ladies and meets on the second Monday of each month at 2.30pm at St Martin in the Wood Church. We enjoy excellent speakers and refreshments.
Beacon Cafe meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month from 10- 12noon at St. Boniface. We offer delicious home-made cake (coffee and walnut is the big favourite!), real coffee or tea and a friendly welcome. There is a craft table with a different craft to try each week, and always knitting to do. There is a lot of chat, but if you prefer to sit quietly, we have newspapers and magazines to read. All are very welcome.
Holiday at Home
Holiday at Home is for Senior Citizens, held at St. Boniface Centre on Mondays between 10.30am and 4pm every 6-8 weeks. The aim is for everyone to have a fun day away from home in the company of others enjoying a variety of activities, entertainment and home cooked lunch and afternoon tea. The emphasis is definitely on fun.
Once a month we invite our men to come together at 8.30am to 10am for a full English breakfast and a talk from an interesting speaker. We’ve had everyone from politicians to church leaders, industry chiefs to those in the media. Please have a look at our what’s on page for details of the next event.
A group for all women to grow in their faith, and enjoy breakfast together! Meetings are generally on the 2nd Saturday of every other month. Donations to cover costs welcome.
Parish lunches are on the 3rd Thursday of the month at St Martin in the Wood at 12 noon. Join us for home cooked main course and scrumptious desserts.
Film nights are held monthly in Salisbury Room, St Boniface Church Centre, starting at 7.30pm.
No membership is required. Everyone is welcome and Film nights are open to everyone and anyone interested in sharing a film. There are no charges for the evening as it is offered as an opportunity to meet others, chat (but not during the film!) and enjoy a film. The choice of films is a combination of ideas and suggestions and what DVDs we have between us. Please pass suggestions for future programmes to Barbara Dobson. There is a variety of genre and if you haven’t heard of the film – give it a try! The programme can be modified when something exciting comes up!
Tea and coffee is provided but you are welcome to bring your own refreshments if you prefer something more exciting. From time to time, some people bring delicious home-made food to share!
There is no need to reserve a seat – just turn up from 7.15pm.
