Our church is a busy place throughout the week, with a large number of regular groups and activities. We hope that there really is something for everyone, and are constantly looking to find out what people need in our community. Whether you are a new parent, a student, or you live alone, everyone is an important part of our community and we should all be able to find something to feel part of.
If we listed all of our groups here, it would be a very long list, so we have tried to group them according to ‘categories’, which hopefully makes it easier to find what you are looking for. Simply click on the names of any groups which interest you, and you will be redirected to the page for that group.
FOOD AND DRINK
We have lots of opportunities to get together and share food. Whether it is a lunchtime gathering to meet old friends and new at SOUP AND SWEET, meeting and chatting over morning coffee and the Saturday papers at TOAST, or afternoon tea and cakes at TEAPOT, or even a 3 course meal at SUPPER CLUB. Most weekday mornings we run COFFEE MORNINGS which are a great place for a coffee, tea or hot chocolate and a biscuit or two. For ladies,there is also our weekly WOMENS’ WEDNESDAY GROUP, and for those who enjoy handicrafts, the CHATTY CRAFTERS.
We know how important it is for new mums and dads to meet others, and we aim to be a welcoming and child friendly place to enable this. We host a weekly toddler group, TADPOLES, during term time. Dads and male carers can enjoy WHO LET THE DADS OUT once a month, and everyone is welcome to come along to TOAST.
We are very proud to support the discipleship house group CATCH which has been set up locally to SJR to give students and young adults the option to meet on a weekly basis in an informal setting and enjoy the chance to worship and converse about how the Christian faith is helping them in what can be a busy student life.
Our BOYS’ BRIGADE AND GIRLS’ ASSOCIATION is the focus for our work with children and young people and we are proud to have been the home of the 4th Southampton for 100 years!
HOBBIES AND INTERESTS
If you enjoy singing, then our CHURCH CHOIR might interest you. Those who are sporty could consider our BADMINTON CLUB or our BOWLS CLUB. If you love technology ( or maybe more importantly, if you don’t love it, but need to use it), then why not give COMPUTER CLUB a visit?
