Communi-Teas

Next meeting in January 2020

A group of us are meeting at All Saints Church on the 3rd Sunday of each month from 4.45pm, to enjoy an hour of friendship, fellowship… and Tea &Cakes.
This is not a fundraiser, just something we wanted to do.

Please come along and join us, even for a little while. There is an Evensong Service at 6pm. You are very welcome to stay for this or not, as you wish.

We do hope that you will come up to church on a Sunday afternoon to join us for Tea & Cakes. You’ll be very welcome!
