When and where: Monday, 1.30pm – 3pm in the church hall.

We meet weekly for tea/coffee and cake, followed by a variety of activities: past sessions have included playing skittles on a traditional wooden alley, a talk on beekeeping, information and advice from our local Police Community Support Officers, exotic fruit tasting, learning about Mindfulness, the history of St John the Baptist Church and a cream tea in the Jubilee Garden.

We always have lots of talks, activities and outings planned, so do come along and join us. There is a charge of £2 (pay as you go) per session.

We would also welcome helpers willing to make drinks or provide cake. Alternatively, if you can give a talk or organise and afternoon activity for the group, we would love to hear from you.

For more information, including a programme of events, please contact Ruth Ruocco Brown c/o the parish office on 020 8546 2590 or by email.


This is a social gathering for local people and has been part of the community for over 25 years.

The group meets every Wednesday morning between 10.30am and 12pm in the Andrew’s Wing. Everyone in the community is welcome to drop in for a cup of tea or coffee and a chat, men and women, young and old, any faith.

Prayers are said at 10.30am so do join us then; if you do not wish to join in prayers, please drop in from 11.00am.
