Community Groups 

We have a number of different community groups that meet throughout the week at different times and for different purposes. All of our community groups are here to provide opportunities for people to share in fellowship together whilst being introduced to the Good News of Jesus Christ.  

Please note: All of our Community Groups have been significantly affected by Covid-19.  The details listed on our website help give you an idea of the kind of groups we have but at this time not all of the groups meet in this way or at all. 


CAMEO (Come and Meet Each Other)

When: third Saturday of each month
Time:  3pm - 5pm
Where: Lounge (off the church hall)

Come and Meet Each Other in the hall. CAMEO is a great chance to get together and meet new people for an afternoon of fun and friendship. This community group meets on the third Saturday of each month. There is often a guest speaker. 

 
Lunch Club

When: every Tuesday 
Time: 12.30pm to 2pm 
Where: church hall 
Cost: £4

Every Tuesday we have a Lunch Club that gathers to share a meal together. The meal consists of 2 courses followed by tea or coffee afterwards. This is a fantastic community made up of primarily elderly people who enjoy a time of fellowship and food together. Once a month we have a service directly before lunch club during which there is opportunity to sing hymns, pray and listen to a short talk. 
 

St Patrick's Tigers

When: Saturdays every few months
Time: 9.00am, 
Where: parkrun

The primary purpose of St Patrick’s Tigers is to take part in the 5K run/jog/walk matches against other local churches. These are held roughly every couple of months at one of the local parkruns. Please see this churchrunner.co.uk for details of the next match.

If you would like to give a 5K run a go, please do join us. This doesn’t have to be at a match. Members of St Patrick’s run most weeks; our most popular location is Roundshaw Downs. Most of the courses are a couple of laps (so you can stop half-way) and it’s OK to walk some of the way. Alternatively, parkrun is always looking for help with marshaling etc.

In order to take part it is essential that you register with parkrun – you can list St Patrick’s Tigers as your running club, if you wish. If you are running on one of the competition days, please let the church office know!

Please note that St Patrick’s Tigers is different from the other activities listed as it is not an activity run by the church. This means that St Patrick’s safeguarding policies do not apply and parents remain responsible for their children; please note parkrun’s requirements which include that under 11s must be accompanied by an adult.
 

TGI Thursday
 
When: Every Thursday in term time

Time: 9.45am to 11.00am

Thank God It's Thursday (TGI Thursday for short) is a group for parents meeting every week during term time - it's a chance for mums to have a bit of a break. TGI is a great opportunity to meet with others to have some time out from the busyness of every day life. There is a varied programme of activities each term including guest speakers, craft mornings, tasting and lots more. There is always time to relax and have a chat over a cup of tea or coffee

There's a fully staffed creche - you can leave your children there, or join them in the creche for as much of the session as you want.

During the summer holidays we meet in different local parks, gardens or the church, suitable for all ages. Check the Facebook page or with Helen to confirm the location for that week.
