Barnwell Baptist Church has been running a group for the Over 60's for many years and we have been grateful for the many who have helped to make this group successful and to enable us to continue running.
As we emerge from the Pandemic, and begin to learn to live with Covid, we are starting to meet again. We have missed this over the past 2 years and sadly we have lost one or two members, and others are now finding age and mobility make it difficult to join us, so we are keen to grow the group and welcome new members.
We plan to run activities on the 1st Monday of the month, in most cases - there are one or two where we change due to other circumstances, so always best to double check. We also have a games afternoon on the 3rd Monday of the month. We have a printed programme which we would be delighted to send to you by email, post or to hand deliver if more suitable.
Over the course of the year we arrange other trips and outings - a Spring and Summer trip are always well received. We also hold a special service during the summer, at Christmas, and Easter and invite folk to join us for other special services as well - Harvest being another particular favourite.
There is a membership fee for the year (or for half a year) which entitles members to discount on some of our trips and covers the costs of our speakers and entertainment. We don't want money to be an issue, or a membership fee to get in the way of people coming. We encourage folk to come and have a look and if after a few weeks or months they enjoy coming, then we can talk about membership.
Everyone over 60 is welcome, although we primarily aim to serve the residents of the Abbey ward. And alongside these regular sessions we do support other activities locally and promote events in the city.
