God, Tea and Cake (at Healaugh Vicarage)
Open to anybody who would like to come along to the Vicarage on the first Thursday of each month, to talk about God in our world and in our lives. If you intend to come along please let me know. To assure people these groups aren't strictly prayer groups, neither are they strictly bible study. Those coming to a group like this won't be expected to pray openly in front of others, neither will they be tested on their biblical knowledge. It is God, Tea (or Coffee) and Cake and a chat in a safe and comfortable environment.
Every first Thursday at 7:30 PM for 1½ hours
