The Church at Bents Green

Regular events for adults

Below are details of the regular activities and groups for adults. 

Tea, Toast & Time 4 Thinking - Thursdays 10.30am

This is a time to reflect on what following Jesus is all about and a place for all those seeking answers. Each session starts with tea, toast and chat. We then look at a Bible study or video followed by a time for discussion. Carers of young children are especially welcome (and so are the under-5s!). The atmosphere is relaxed and we put toys out to keep any little ones entertained after they’ve finished their toast. We usually meet in the upstairs lounge. For more information please contact Sue on 0114 2307556.

Games, craft and chatter - Wednesdays 12.30pm to 3pm

A chance to meet up and enjoy indoor bowling, scrabble, chess, dominoes, jigsaws and cards, knitting and crafts. The group is very friendly and welcoming. Feel free to come along to see if you like it or contact Ruth on 0114 2686507 for more information. The group usually meets every Wednesday including in school holidays.

Several of the members of this group were involved in knitting the Angels that were given out to the community in December 2020. There were lots of excited children that morning when they found the lovely knitted angels hung on bushes and railings that they could take home and put up on their Christmas trees.

Men’s group – Every few weeks

This is a group of around 10 men who meet every few weeks for discussions and to provide support and encouragement to each other. Men of any age are welcome to join. For more information please get in touch via the Contact us page.

Harbour coffee – Wednesdays in term time 3.45pm until 5.15pm

A small group meets in the music room for tea, coffee, biscuits and a chat. Anyone is welcome to drop in, including parents of children in our after-school club.

Coffee morning - 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month 10.30am until noon

We meet in the church for hot drinks and a chat. Everyone is welcome. 

Prayer meeting - 1st Saturday of the month 10am until 11am

We meet in the music room to pray.

Porter Valley Dementia Café - First and third Thursdays of the month 2pm until 4pm

This is a non-religious group that is run by Age UK but we have included details of it here because it takes place in our Church and several of our church members attend or are involved as volunteers. It is for people with dementia who live in their own homes, and for their families and carers. It offers a social afternoon with snacks and refreshments, a range of activities and relevant speakers and guests.

Come as you are
