Across the parish we have a variety of activities and events that are run specifically for adults.
We love to welcome people to church, no matter your age or previous involvement with church!
Both St Mary's and St Christopher's host community projects with activities for adults to get involved with, through the work of the Good Neighbour Project and the Vine Centre.
Community Cafes also run there through the week.

The Good Neighbour Project
At St Christopher’s, the Good Neighbour Project runs various activities to help improve the lives of local people.
These activities include: a Day Care Centre for over 50’s, a Community Café, a Breakfast Café, a Fruit and Vegetable Market, Line Dancing plus a range of Health & Wellbeing Activities for over 50’s.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, most of these activities are currently closed. However, we have now re-opened our Community cafe on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday lunchtimes from 11am – 1pm. We are hoping to re-open most of our other activities in the coming weeks.
The Vine Centre
At St Mary’s, the Vine Centre runs a busy programme of activities and events for older people in our community through their Over 55’s Day Centre.
In the past these have included: crafts, prize bingo, quizzes, reminiscing, gentle exercise, table top games, and baking or cooking.
The Vine also works with local partners to provide affordable family days out, and runs a Community Café.
