Monday Cookery Club

Make new friends as adults come together to cook and share a meal. Every Monday during term-time from 10 am - 12.30 pm. There is a small charge of £2.00 per session towards costs.

Community Hairdresser

Every Friday 9:00am - 11:00am

Our Community Hairdresser has been working with older people on Woodhouse Close Estate for over 30 years and for the last few years has been based here at the Church Community Centre where people can come to have their hair done at a competitive price.

Day Club

Every Thursday 10:00am - 2:00pm

Up to 24 attend this very popular club, which has been going for over 20 years.  Activities include our fun weekly seated exercise class, bingo, ‘arts and crafts’, various speakers and advice on issues facing the elderly, including health, welfare and legal advice. Some of our members are not able to make their own way here and we have secured funding to allow us to provide a taxi service where needed.

Friends in Fellowship

First Wednesday of every month 7:30pm

We get together to enjoy a programme of events, activities and guest speakers throughout the year.  

We have an active membership of over 24 and we aim to have a programme that has something to interest everyone.  Annual events include our Charity night, Summer outing and Birthday meal as well as church festival celebrations. 

The Friends is a great group and new members can be sure of a warm welcome. 

Lunch Club

Every Tuesday and Thursday 12:00pm

We currently serve up to 30 three course meals each day for a low price and the food is freshly cooked by our two cooks and volunteer helpers.  If you would like to have a hot meal in good company then please come along. You would be guaranteed a warm welcome.  

Meals on Wheels

Every Tuesday and Thursday

Our friendly volunteer drivers and escorts deliver a hot, two course meal cooked on the premises from fresh ingredients to elderly and vulnerable people in and around Woodhouse Close.
