Monday at Eight meets on Monday evenings at 8pm in the Methodist Centre. The group is a gathering of ladies not just from our church family but also from the other churches and the local community. They meet together to enjoy a varied programme, undertake projects to support charities and for friendship and fun.
A programme of events is issued each Autumn, Winter, and Spring (the group doesn’t meet in July and August). All are welcome to come and join this friendly group. For further information email firstname.lastname@example.org

A number of years ago a member of the group found the passage below. We feel it decribes very well how we feel about the group.
How generous God is that he has given me these few and special friends who are true friends of the heart.
How he must love me that he has let us find each other upon this crowded earth. We are drawn to each other as if by some mystical force. We recognise each other at once. We are sisters of the spirit who understand each other instinctively.
There is no blood between us, no common family history. Yet there are no barriers of background, or even age. Older, younger, richer, poorer - no matter. We speak the same language, we have come together in a special moment in time, and the sense of union we feel will last through eternity.
