An Invitation to join us at our Friday Group

We have recently enjoyed having the opportunity to meet with others and share our thoughts on how we feel about a piece of Scripture, Text or a Poem.  We have a relaxed and informal atmosphere where, if you wish, you can take part in the discussions, or simply just enjoy being part of the group.  We are hoping that, if there is sufficient interest, this could become a regular gathering so we invite you to join us and look forward to welcoming you, everyone is welcome.

Book Group

St Chad’s Book Group meet on the second Monday of the month from 10am until noon, and everyone is welcome. Being in the Book Group widens our reading and sparks memories of personal experiences.  The discussions are invariably stimulating and there is always some laughter! We get to know each by sharing our thoughts in a friendly environment.

Starting life in September 2004, the first ever book for the group was Alexander McCall Smith’s The Full Cupboard of Life, which gave the group a great start for subsequent meetings!

We have enjoyed visits from a local author, made trips to places of interest and always enjoy opportunities for sharing meals together.  Please note there is no Book Group in August.

Supper Club

These well-attended events see everyone enjoying evenings filled with delicious food from around the world. Each evening focuses on food from one particular country and so far has included Italy, India, Greece and Spain, complete with a glass of wine and relaxing music.
