The Thursday afternoon Women's Fellowship continues to grow and, at one of the November meetings, we welcomed two new members. The Sharland Room makes an ideal venue for our weekly, open and ecumenical fellowship where we average 25 members. It is really good to share with ladies from St John’s Church, St Antony’s Church and the United Reformed Church as well as with those who have no particular church link.
This past autumn we have welcomed many speakers who have entertained, challenged and informed us on a wide variety of subjects. We heard about the work of CAFOD and the range of help available from the Dorset Blind Association. We enjoyed Mike Webber’s Quiz and listened to the local Royal British Legion Standard Bearer, Wayne Barker. These talks are mixed with several “Homespun” afternoons, the one of Special Treasures or Memories aroused much interest and conversation.
For the coming programme January to April 2019, some more interesting afternoons have been arranged. We look forward to hearing from a former URC Mission Partner to Papua New Guinea, Di Baggs will whisk us around the USA, Mike Webber makes a return visit and our afternoon of 11 April will be an open afternoon when we hope as many people as possible will fill the Sanctuary to hear The Quaysiders in concert. Look for leaflets in the Notice stand in the coffee lounge – you are welcome to any of the meetings – come and enjoy a cup of tea with the ever popular big biscuits.
