MEN OF BOTOLPH

The Men of Botolph meet every month from October until May . The meetings are usually held the first Saturday of the month . We gather at 8.00 am for a Eucharist followed by a light breakfast. Following breakfast we have a guest speaker who speaks for about thirty minutes. Our meetings finish at about 10 am. Everyone is welcome.

LADIES OF BOTOLPH

The Ladies of Botolph meet five times a season, bi-monthly, starting in October through to June the following year. It is always on the second Saturday in the month. We gather in church for 8 a.m. start with said Eucharist and then light breakfast with a guest speaker who speaks for about twenty minutes. We are usually all done and washed up by 10 a.m. All are welcome!

CLOISTER LUNCHES

For several years now, a group of people have met in the Cloister on the last Wednesday of each month to share lunch together, to chat and to spend spiritual time together with prayers and meditation. There’s been a lot of laughter, valued fellowship and friendship - and some excellent food!

The two course lunch starts at 12.30pm and is funded by donations of approximately £4.00 per person. The food is prepared by church groups on a rota basis - usually something simple, but very delicious! We’re always looking for more volunteers to do the catering; obviously the more we have the less often we have to do it! If you feel able to help in this way, please contact me.

Watch out for the lists in the Cloister and get your name down - we’d love to see you!

HOME GROUPS

There are a number of Home Groups at St Botolph’s which are greatly valued by those who belong to them. Those who have never attended one perhaps wonder what they are all about!

Well, they give the opportunity to enjoy fellowship and get to know other members of the church better, to learn together about faith issues through Bible study or teaching DVDs. They also enable members to share the joys and challenges of the Christian life and support one another in prayer.

The groups and a contact person are listed below. If you might be interested in joining a group, or perhaps attending a session to ‘taste and see’, do get in touch with the contact person.The groups generally meet fortnightly during term time.
