Social Events

We run regular social events to help strengthen friendships within our worshipping community, with the wider parish and with our christian neighbours.

As well as our regular Jumble Sales, Cake Sales and Soup Lunches, we also hold seasonal events such as our annual Christmas Tree Festival and Fair and our Harvest Lunch. Since 2014 we have also played host to some of the annual Mitcheldean Folk Festival performances and in the last few years we have enjoyed several themed evenings, including a 'Magic Lantern' show, a Burma-themed fundraising meal in support of the Free Burma Rangers, an Elizabethan Banquet and various Film Evenings.

Mini Market

Our longstanding 'Mini Market' is held every Thursday morning from March to October. Members of our parish gather in church for the Mini Market itself and to share a coffee and talk.

Please feel free to join them for fellowship if you have the time.

Mitcheldean Lunch Club

Our Lunch Club, successfully launched on Friday 21st March 2014, now has over 30 members.

Meeting every 3rd Friday of the month, a friendly, chatty atmosphere greets everyone.

A hot, 3 course meal is served with a choice of apple/orange juice, rolls and butter plus tea or coffee, including necessary dietary requirements. We are delighted to have been able to collect and welcome many who have mobility problems, isolated or just plain lonely. This is a community venture, supported by both churches and the Parish and District Councils.

We are fortunate to have the use of Forest Gate's mobility coach so transport is not a problem. There is room for all, folk who need us and folk who want another direction in their lives. So come along, we meet in Forest Gate Chapel and will be delighted to include you.
