Day Centre

Tuesday, 10.00am – 2.30pm
208, Stapleton Road

We run a day centre for eldery people that are local to our church. Come and join us on a Tuesday from 10.00am until 2.30pm.

People tend to arrive anytime between 10 and 11.00am to suit themselves. The morning is very informal with tea, coffee, biscuits, sweets, chocolates, dominoes, card games, background music and of course, much chatter.

We serve a hot meal at lunch from 12.15 until 1.30 for which we charge £3. Then, during the afternoon we run activities which vary from monthly visiting speakers, quizzes, beetle, scattergories, hymn singing and an epilogue.

Speakers on various topics have entertained and informed the listeners and the
dinners have been much enjoyed and appreciated. We have had some visits from
local schools. The folks have enjoyed this interaction with the children. We pray that the time of hymn singing and gentle Bible teaching will bring conversions and
stimulate a hunger for the gospel.

We have approx. 30 regular attendees with approx. 40 that join us occasionally. A team of over 30 people aid the running of this weekly gathering by means of transport, welcome, cooking, serving, kitchen assistance, moving chairs, or having conversations. Please pray about if you can help with this ministry.
