Friendship group

This is a place for fun and friendship, sharing time together over coffee, and around a delicious meal, aimed at the over 60's both here at St Alkmund's and in our surrounding community. Friendship Group, however, is much more than just a coffee morning or lunch club. We are seeking to be a community on mission together to the 60+ generation, providing an environment of love and servicewhich cares for the overall well-being of our members, and we provide support spiritually, physically, pastorally, and emotionally. Our founding principles are based on God's love. 

We meet on Tuesdays from 11AM at the church for our coffee morning, lunch then starts at 12.15pm and costs just £3.50 per person. Every other week we have a worship service (1st Tuesday of the month is Holy Communion), with a talk or fun activity on the alternate weeks. You are welcome to stay for all of it or just some of the day. Come and find friendship, fellowship, and a very warm welcome!
