Our Coffee Shop is open every Saturday morning from 10am-12 noon: the high standard of home-made cakes, quality of tea/cafetière coffee (Fairtrade) and the service with a smile ought to make it worth the visit anyway!
But you will find a real sense of community here too.
For some, this is the Church Community because they come across many life situations here, talk about just about anything, including faith, and look out for each other.
Women’s Walking Group steps out most Tuesday mornings on a mutually agreed route allowing for friendly chat and fitness.
Unfortunately due to the current Coronovirus restrictions we are unable to hold all the following usual weekly activities. It is hoped that many of them will resume soon.
The Book Club, runs each second Monday of a month from 10am-12noon. Each month, one member of the group chooses the title for the next month from a library list of available collections and there follows a lively discussion of reviews over coffee! (It is held in the Church Lounge which is entered via the side door).
Craft Club/Welsh Class runs every other Friday morning of each month. Individual members are providing guidance to other group members in craft skills for projects from 10-12 followed by a short Welsh conversation beginners’ class. (Craft Club is held in the Church Lounge and entered via the side door.)
Home Group/Bible Study There are two possibilities to attend Bible study and discussion group – one held in a home on a Wednesday evening and one held in the Church Lounge on a Thursday afternoon from 2.30 – 3.45pm. The format and style of the groups are slightly different but each gives the opportunity to study the Bible, pray together and get to know each other.
Men’s Fellowship, a collaborative group between Churches with speakers on a variety of topics, runs fortnightly on a Thursday morning and takes place in Elfed Avenue United Church, Penarth.
Soup Lunches take place in the Church Hall over a run of Friday mornings, usually in the Spring (Lent Lunches) and Autumn and are in aid of specified charities.
A simple home-made soup, cheese and roll lunch at a set price is served by a rota of paired teams from the Penarth Churches, allowing a substantial collection for a charitable causes like Christian Aid, Croeso Penarth Syrian Refugee Appeal or Drought Relief and also providing a welcome opportunity for community conversations.
