The Wednesday Meeting

Meetings are held in our cosy Foyer and begin with announcements, a short Bible reading and prayer. The talk usually begins at 2.10pm, ending at about 2.45pm, followed by a cup of tea/coffee and scone/cake; questions sometimes drift into tea-time.

The programme covers a wide range of topics, of equal interest to men and women, and has included The art of China’s Buddhist Caves, Why is English spelling so weird?, The benefits of Physiotherapy, Mozambique Revisited, Training Detectives, The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Charles Dickens and the North East, Climate Change: Biblical Fact and Modern Myths, Living on the Farnes, Fire Safety in the Home – further details of the programme in our news.

There is no charge for admission, but the speaker receives a small payment/fee/gift which is usually paid for out of voluntary donations by attendees.

The programme for Spring/Early Summer 2024 is as follows:

Wednesday 17th April. Revd Peter Moth – “How I Met Albert Pierrepoint and Lived to Tell the Tale”

Wednesday 15th May. Donald Lloyd – “Engineer Traveller”
