We are a friendly group of Christian men & women, aged 40 plus, from various Churches in the area. We have all become single again. If you have been through a loss (either divorce or bereavement or both ) it can be a difficult time readjusting for all sorts of reasons. Having been through similar experiences we can understand one another. After Church can be an especially tough time when you are on your own. At times there can can be a lack of practical understanding of our situations even within churches which can be very family & couple focused and we can often feel invisible.
We usually meet on the first Sunday of the month at a different pub or restaurant. It's a time to share a meal, discuss the meaning of life, topical issues or trivia (basically to talk about anything & everything), laugh, & have fun together. If the weather is good we often go for a short walk nearby, for those who wish.
Other events may be organised from time to time, such as walks, & visits to places but Sunday Lunch will be a regular feature and was the original idea for the group. Ideas always welcome.
Please note Photos of animals or other images not accepted for membership because we would like to recognise you!
From March 2016 - I will be asking for a £1 sub for lunch attendance as there is & has been a 6 monthly fee to the organiser for running this site from the beginning (which is $59.94 (£39.31) every 6 months =£78 per year for up to 50 people). I would like to keep the group to 50 and under.
No Shows" ie RSVP "yes" then not turning up on the day without any word: unfortunately if this happens on 2 occasions membership will be ended.
Members inactive for 4 months or more will be removed from the group but are free to rejoin again at any time.
