Regular events for adults

Below are details of the regular activities and groups for adults. 

Tea, Toast & Time 4 Thinking - Thursdays 10.30am

This is a time to reflect on what following Jesus is all about and a place for all those seeking answers. Each session starts with tea, toast and chat. We then look at a Bible study or video followed by a time for discussion. Carers of young children are especially welcome (and so are the under-5s!). The atmosphere is relaxed and we put toys out to keep any little ones entertained after they’ve finished their toast. We usually meet in the upstairs lounge. For more information please contact Sue on 0114 2307556.

Games, craft and chatter - Wednesdays 12.30pm to 3pm

A chance to meet up and enjoy indoor bowling, scrabble, chess, dominoes, jigsaws and cards, knitting and crafts. The group is very friendly and welcoming. Feel free to come along to see if you like it or contact Ruth on 0114 2686507 for more information. The group usually meets every Wednesday including in school holidays.

Several of the members of this group were involved in knitting the Angels that were given out to the community in December 2020. There were lots of excited children that morning when they found the lovely knitted angels hung on bushes and railings that they could take home and put up on their Christmas trees.

come as you areCome as you are – 2021 dates to be confirmed

This is a group for women of all ages. It is for sharing love, encouragement and fellowship with those anywhere on their faith journey and for discovering ways to support each other practically and prayerfully. We usually meet up every few months in Church for a themed event with amazing refreshments and baked treats. The events usually include a short talk and then various activities to join in with. For more information please contact Katie on 07464 824462.

As well as the events at Church there is also a ‘Come as you are’ facebook page – please feel free to ‘like’ this so that you can share in the regular inspirational and encouraging posts.

Men’s group – Every few weeks

This is a group of around 10 men who meet every few weeks for discussions and to provide support and encouragement to each other. Men of any age are welcome to join. For more information please get in touch via the Contact us page.

Harbour coffee – Wednesdays in term time 3.45pm until 5.15pm

A small group meets in the music room for tea, coffee, biscuits and a chat. Anyone is welcome to drop in, including parents of children in our after-school club.

Friendship club – Tuesday 2pm (temporarily suspended due to the pandemic)

The main purpose of Friendship Club is in the title! We meet to chat with our friends, to be entertained, and to enjoy fellowship in a warm, convivial atmosphere. The sessions often include an interesting talk from a guest speaker. It takes place in the Church Hall (enter by the side door opposite the shops). A warm welcome awaits any who would like to come – especially men and women over 60. For more information contact Pat 0114 2497280 or Jackie on 0114 3483069.

Coffee mornings – 1st Saturday in the month 10.30am until noon (temporarily suspended due to the pandemic)

All are welcome at our monthly coffee mornings which take place in the Church. 

Porter Valley Dementia Café - First and third Thursdays of the month 2pm until 4pm (although these arrangements have been impacted by the pandemic so please check before attending)

This is a non-religious group that is run by Age UK but we have included details of it here because it takes place in our Church and several of our church members attend or are involved as volunteers. It is for people with dementia who live in their own homes, and for their families and carers. It offers a social afternoon with snacks and refreshments, a range of activities and relevant speakers and guests.
