Groups at St Martin’s and St Thomas’s
The church organises many groups which meet regularly for fellowship, discussion and activities. If you are interested in finding out more, the contact details are provided below.
Home Discussion groups
These meet at various times during the week. Contact Colin Thorpe (01223 246736) for details.
Mary and Martha
A women’s group which meets every Thursday from 10:00 to 12:00. On the first meeting each month it takes the form of “Mothers’ Prayers” (see www.mothersprayers.org, though this link has sometimes not worked!). Contact Elizabeth Baker (01223 244091).
We started in December 2019 meeting monthly on a Saturday morning from 10:30 until 12:00 for tea/coffee, cake, chat and craft.
During lockdown we met every Saturday morning on Zoom for chat and optionally sharing our current craft and cooking activities.
From 18th September 2021 we went back to meeting in person on the third Sunday of each month, continuing in October and November, but we have now taken a break and are planning to resume in the autumn of 2022.
St Martin’s Lunch Club
Alpha or Christianity Explored Course
We have run Alpha in conjunction with St Philip’s church, and may run a Christianity Explored course in future. Contact Johannes (01223 665848) if you are interested.

A group welcoming women from all cultures, customs and backgrounds who would like to meet others.
