We have found that Saturdays can be the loneliest day of the week for many local people who are over 60 and whose families have grown up and left home, or who are suffering bereavement and loss.
This is why our Friendship Club meets generally on the second Saturday of each month, from 2.30 pm until 4.30 pm, at St Philip's Church Centre.
The Friendship Club gives people an opportunity to talk, make new friendships and share memories and laughter about old times.
Everything we do is underlined by our commitment to the Christian values of caring for, and being interested in, those around us.
We normally have a different guest speaker every month and organise occasional mid-week coffee mornings which are particularly useful if you are new to the area.
We make a point of picking everyone up from Dorridge and Bentley Heath so all of our members can attend the meetings.
Tea is very important at every event, so we always have sandwiches and cake, and our entrance fee is £3.
