The Church doors first opened to Pop-In on 7th May 2011. Everyone who wishes to pop in for a ‘cuppa and a natter’ is welcome.
Pop-In meets once a fortnight on a Wednesday after the mid-week Holy Communion Service and has built to an average of 20 to 30 visitors. There is a real mix of people from the three congregations and also the local neighbourhood. Pop-In provides an excellent platform for support and counselling to the community.
A number of dedicated helpers attend in order to serve refreshments and display bric-a-brac and books. No particular charges are made but donations gratefully accepted. Quizzes are held regularly for those who enjoy them and occasionally free bingo with prizes, which have been donated.
Over the years Pop-In has hosted a variety of
guest speakers, giving advice or providing information on local issues or matters of interest. Visits to historical venues as well as a theatre trip each season have proved popular and both the
spring and Christmas lunches out are well supported by our members. A day out by coach
has become an annual favourite where friends and relatives take up any spare seats.
