Older people play a valued and integral role in the life of our church family. In addition to supporting the vision and ministry of New Life through their many giftings and life experiences, there is opportunity to support each other in ongoing discipleship and outreach through various events, including:
Food for Thought: A thriving group of retired folk and senior citizens who meet fortnightly on Tuesdays at 12 noon for a wonderful home-cooked lunch, followed by a half-hour service to which a wide variety of guest speakers are invited. Nominal charge of £3, with local transport included if required.
TAFFY: (Thursday Afternoon Fellowship For You!) meets on the alternate Thursdays at 2pm for fellowship and friendship. Relationships are deepened with God and with each other, and meetings with guest speakers are regularly interspersed with trips and outings to the countryside and places of interest.
Quarterly Services: Guest services held at 3pm on a Sunday at Christmas, Easter, Midsummer and Harvest. Attended by older people from throughout the community, with transport provided where required. A seasonal service with guest speaker, followed by afternoon tea and fellowship.
