Wednesday Lunches / Friendship Club
Following the Wednesday 11am service (sometimes this is a communion service) in St Helen’s, coffee and biscuits are served in the church. But every alternative Wednesday lunch is served in the church hall from 12.30pm. This is a chance for everyone to share a home cooked hot meal at a very reasonable price, and for many this is, for some the highlight of the fortnight!
Following lunch the Friendship Club starts around 2pm offering good company and stimulating activities all help to make the Wednesday Friendship Club the place to be for Stapleford ‘gentlefolk’ of a certain age! The programme of events varies considerably ranging from a travelling theatre group to quizzes and intersting speakers. The afternoon ends at 4pm.
Friendship Club also encourages members to keep in touch especially through tough times or illness, as such is a good place to make new friends. The group is friendly and welcomes everyone, and attendance at the church service in the morning is great but definitely not compulsory!
“A friend is a treasure
A friend is someone we turn to
when our spirits need a lift.
A friend is someone we treasure,
for our friendship is a gift.
A friend is someone who fills our lives,
With beauty, joy and grace.
And makes the world we live in,
a better and happier place.”
