Groups

SUNDAY MORNINGS

Every Sunday morning at 9:45 we come together to sing, learn and pray. Led by one of our minister, one of our regular  preachers, or a visiting speaker. The service generally lasts an hour, and everyone is welcome. The second Sunday of the month is an all-age service targeted more towards family, and attended by members of our uniformed organisations.

FIRM FOUNDATIONS

Meeting every other Wednesday in the Oak Room (back door of the church building), we meet to discuss numerous topics relevant to the Christian faith, and how Christianity is relevant to 21st century life. We are a mixed group varying in age and opinion, and we welcome anyone who would like to come and join in. We start at 7:30pm and finish at 8:45pm.

VIKKI’S OLDER ACTIVE PEOPLE

The longer we live the more important regular exercise becomes for a full and active life. These classes are designed specifically for older adults and improve flexibility, strength, co-ordination, well being and general fitness. Classes are held in the Hall. There are two classes on Monday, 10:00-10:45am & 11:00-11:45am, and one class on Friday at 3:00-3:45pm. Each session is £3.50. Come along and join in the fun.

MEN’S BREAKFAST

Every second Saturday of the month we hold a breakfast which is open to all men, regardless of age, race, faith or postcode. It’s an opportunity to meet new friends and old, share a laugh and a joke, listen to whoever our guest speaker may be, and enjoy a full English breakfast. All the meat is supplied by our friends at G. Lomas butchers. There’s no second rate sausage here! Starting at 8:30 until 10:00, it’s the best £3 you’ll spend all month.

Through the year we hold special fundraising mornings with various stalls, where all the money is donated to different charities. It is very well supported throughout the year and is open to all who would like to drop in at anytime and enjoy a chat over a cuppa in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

PILATES

METHODIST WOMEN IN BRITAIN (MWIB)

A women’s fellowship, we meet fortnightly in the Oak Room (back door of the church building) on a Tuesday afternoon, 2:30-3:45pm, and have speakers from around the area. We are a charity raising money mainly for overseas mission, but some funds are used in this country. Everyone is welcome to join us, and stay for a cup of tea and a chat.

FELLOWSHIP MEETINGS

We are a small mixed house group who usually meet fortnightly between 7:00 and 9:00pm at member’s homes. We study the bible and hold discussions, ending with a time of prayer. We always round the evening off with a drink and fellowship. Please contact Rev Jen Mullis to find out more details.

ANSTON FRIENDSHIP CLUB

Friendship Group meets every Thursday between 2pm – 4pm in our Community Hall and is open to anyone in the local community, although it’s mainly attended by the retired. Why not come and spend time with like-minded people be it just for a chat, a game of dominoes or cards and a cuppa. We have occasional speakers as well as special events and outings.  We are a none profit organisation, in that all money collected through subs go back to the members in one form or another.

SEQUENCE DANCING

Calling All Sequence Dancers – whether beginners or more able. Come and enjoy an evening of friendship and laughter. We usually meet on Friday evenings at 7.30pm until 9.30pm in the Community Hall – cost £2 per person. Tea/coffee and biscuits during the interval included in the cost. If you haven’t got a partner we can usually find you one. See you there!

WORKING PARTY

Meeting every Tuesday between 8.30am & 12pm, with a break for a drink & fresh baked sausage roll. As a group of like-minded people we try, within the bounds of health & safety, to keep the buildings and grounds in a good state of repair, be it tending the flower beds, painting, cleaning or general repairs.

The fellowship & fun is a tonic in itself! Anyone can just pop in to see if there are any suitable jobs to do or just be a general helper. There is no commitment. Come as often or as little as you can spare the time.

Why not pop along sometime to have a look around and a chat. 10.30 is a good time as you can get a tea/coffee and that famous sausage roll as well as introducing yourself.

YOGA

Weekly one hour yoga sessions take place on Tuesday 4th September at 2:00pm. Sessions cost £5.00. Why not try this ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental well-being.
