All adults are welcome to come to Crafty Coffee meetings to do your own craft or just to have a chat. We meet in The Mews every Wednesday 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM for friendship, tea, coffee and biscuits. Occasional outings are also arranged.
The Home Group is for anyone who wishes to think more about faith-related topics.
We usually meet at 7:30 PM on Wednesday evenings in someone's home. Typically, we will meet fortnightly for 4 to 6 sessions to study a particular topic and then have a gap of a few weeks.
Our discussions often look at a particular book of the bible or at what light the bible sheds on a particular topical issue. The sessions are informal and people start from a range of backgrounds. The sessions are led by lay people and everyone is able to contribute, but not obliged to do so.
We meet once a month at Tarporley Garden Centre for fellowship and chat. Anyone is welcome whether or not you attend church or live in the parish.
First Thursday Café is very popular with the mainly retired people who attend, although anyone from the community is welcome. We have a list of eager cake makers and there are usually about 5 tasty cakes per session to choose from to enjoy with a chat over a cup of tea or coffee.
The café was originally started to help with social isolation caused by the pandemic and has now become a regular social fixture for many.
It is always held on the First Thursday of each month for ease of remembering.
Tune ringing on handbells is a lot of fun and very sociable. Would you like to learn?
We meet weekly on Wednesdays, from 4:00 – 5:00 PM in The Mews, Church Green, Whitegate. Come and have a go. No experience necessary and don’t worry if you don’t read music. You only need to count.
St Mary’s Singers is an occasional choir which is targeted at all friends of St Mary’s Church, be they part of the regular congregation or beyond. It offers the opportunity for anyone to come and sing alongside the regular church choir and prepare special music at various times during the year.
The choir meets typically in December, to prepare music for the church’s Service of Nine Lessons and Carols and a Christmas Concert at Vale Royal Abbey. It also prepares music for a special event on the evening of Palm Sunday, and a Choral Evensong towards the end of the Summer Term.
Mothers’ Union is a worldwide Christian movement which aims to give practical support for family life.
We meet monthly, usually in The Mews, alternating between afternoon meetings starting at 2:00 PM and evening ones, which begin at 7:30 PM. Our members pool ideas for our yearly programme and we aim for a varied mix of meetings.
We support Mothers’ Union charities by holding fund raising events and we support each other and our parish in any way we can. Visitors and new members are always welcome.
