Stitch & Chat
The unique feature of this group is that it is not mandatory that to stitch – chatting helps! So, if you have a few hours to spare, please drop in. You can either bring your own handicraft project, or help someone else with theirs.

Recently, Stitch & Chat received a legacy in memory of Geoffrey & Hazel Kershaw and used the monies to purchase linen to make altar cloths & purifactors. The linen was dedicated during our Easter Day service when we were pleased to welcome Vaughan & Diane Kershaw to church

 

 

Book Club
If you enjoy reading books and talking about them – then don’t miss our Book Club. We meet once a month, for a chat about a book we have read during the previous month. In order to make it meaningful and interesting we have evolved a system whereby we take  turns to choose a book to read. This helps us to widen our choice of books and get some idea about what others are reading! It is always interesting to see what sort of books other people find interesting!
The discussions are certainly not high powered or intended for only the clever. This book club has been going for several years – that is the best testimony that it is interesting and rewarding.
We meet on the 4th Tuesday of every month (except December) at 2.15pm in church
Our next meetings are:

28th May – Pompeii – Robert Harris

25th June

On Friday 18th January, 9 New Explorers visited the Bradford National Science & Media Museum. There were 6 floors to visit and something for everyone to be interested in

On Friday 19th October 2018, 7 New Explorers visited Kirkstall Abbey after a visit to Kirkstall Abbey House Museum. The museum was a hidden gem especially as there was lots to see for only £4.50 admission. There is quite a bit of the Abbey still standing and we were able to imagine how it worked when the monks lived there
