Over 50s


We warmly welcome over 50s and value their wisdom, experience and sense of fun. They are actively involved in every area of church life and mingle with people of all ages. Many join in with country walks, park runs and quiz nights or volunteer to help at our children's holiday clubs. 

Most church members are linked to a small group for Bible discussion, prayer and support. They meet around the city in church members' homes most Tuesday or Wednesday evenings. There's also a women's group on Thursday mornings and occasional weekend events for men, and a short course for those exploring the Christian faith or who want a refresher on the basics for beginners. Contact us if you would like to try a group.

A slice of life is a group for over 50s of all faiths or none, at 10.30am on the second Monday of every month except August. We meet to make friends over coffee and cake, and each meeting has activities or a guest speaker on a theme. Activities have included crafts, sharing gardening tips, or tasting our way through a history of chocolate. We've welcomed guest speakers who've worked in the Antarctic, led the council, and appeared in Dad's Army. Each month a church member shares a little about their story or faith.
