Social

 

Heald Green United Reformed Church is a very sociable community church, with a wide choice of activities for all ages. To see activities and clubs just for younger ones, visit ‘Children, Young People’, on our menu. Below is a list of activities for older people in our community, as well as our Activities Night, which is for all ages together.

Activities Night

rummikub_mainWednesday evenings 7.30 pm – 10.00 pm is a club night evening suitable for all ages.  All sorts of pleasurable activities are possible. I can reveal that ‘Rummikubs’ is the current front runner!

It’s just a pound to join in the fun, and refreshments are also available if you work up a thirst.

The Pensioners’ Plod

happyplodderOnce a month, we have a hike of about 3 – 4 miles for those who, shall we say, are past that immediate first flush of youth. We meet in the church car park and arrange cars informally for transport to our starting point. The route is chosen carefully, not just for suitability and scenic appeal, but also to include, as far as possible, a suitable establishment for our midday meal. You don’t have to belong to the church to join in, just meet in the church car park at 9.45 am on the dates listed below.

Coffee Morning (first Saturday in the month, 10.30 am)

cup and saucerOn the 1st Saturday of each month a Coffee Morning is held at our church, from 10.30 am – 12.00 pm. It’s a chance to meet friends old and new, enquire about our church or simply to enjoy the company for a while. There is no charge for any of the refreshments (though often people do wish to make a small donation) so no one should feel excluded. And of course, all our hot drinks and many of our snacks are Fairtrade. Why? Because we believe they should be!

Columba Club (Ladies) (Tuesday evenings, 8.00 pm, fortnightly)

Columba Club is a Ladies’ Group which meets fortnightly on Tuesday evenings. There is no official membership, all ladies and friends being welcome, whether attending regularly or whenever the programme is of particular interest. We enjoy a varied programme of Speakers, Demonstrations and Club Nights, as well as an annual Christmas Dinner and a Summer Outing. A small subscription is paid on attendance, to cover refreshments and professional Speakers’ fees.

Luncheon Club – by referral (Friday lunchtimes, 1.00 pm, fortnightly)

sunday-roastThe Luncheon Club is run by volunteers from our church and meets fortnightly in our church hall, catering for around 20 people. Unfortunately, places are limited, and therefore the membership of the club is by referral only, mainly those who are housebound or infirm. If you do know someone living in Heald Green who meets the criteria please do contact us with details of the person concerned.  If no space is available we can if you wish keep your contact details until we have a vacancy. 

Volunteers from the church also provide transport for those who need it; members of the club are picked up to arrive by 12.30 pm, ready for lunch.
