Fresh coffee and homemade cakes

Connections is a safe and welcoming place for Seniors to gather.  We meet Tuesday mornings in church. It provides a great opportunity to meet over coffee and cakes in a welcoming and friendly environment. There is a constantly changing range of activities with everything from mini hand massages to craft activities and games as well as special interest tables put together by local guests. All are welcome!  If you would like to run a special interest table please let us know.


Welcome, friendship and support

The church is transformed with small tables and chairs to host the activities and to provide a place to sit and chat. It is a welcoming and friendly place to connect with other people and share stories, joys and challenges. As part of the morning there is a  short Thought for the Day as well as the opportunity for you to talk and pray with someone or visit our prayer corner if you would like.

Note to Carers

If you are looking for opportunities to get out of the house with the person that you care for, Connections and Connections Coffee Stop may be a great place for you.  We offer a wide range of activities in a welcoming and friendly environment.



Connections Coffee Stop

Connections Coffee Stop meets on the alternate Tuesday mornings to Connections. It provides a relaxed and informal environment to meet for fresh coffee and chocolate biscuits in the weeks between Connections.
