Details of our occasional social activities, meals, parties, concerts and outings are listed below.
We also have a regular coffee hour and time to chat after the Sunday service each week.
‘Our Favourite Poems’ – Poetry Evening:
Thursday 16th August, 6.45pm for a 7.00pm start, finished by 9pm
Do bring a favourite poem or two to read to the group and let Sarah know a few days beforehand what you plan to bring so we can have copies available for everyone. A special invite goes out to people who write poetry – do bring one of your own poems along to share with us. There’ll be seasonal refreshments to enjoy too.
Sunday Afternoon Tea Dances
Sundays 23rd September, 9th December 2018 from 2-5pm
Join us for a tea dance with social dancing and actual tea and cake! Come and enjoy a gentle afternoon learning some basic social dancing steps with Rachel who can teach even the most left-footed people (there will be a beginners dance lesson at 2.15pm – in September it’s rumba). This is an inclusive event for anyone including LGBTQI+ people and we ask that everyone is respectful to each other. The partnering at this tea dance is gender-neutral, meaning anyone can lead and anyone can follow, and we are completely body positive. The venue is wheelchair-accessible and has gender-neutral toilets. We ask you not to wear high heels as we need to protect the floor! You are invited to bring your own home-made cakes (clearly labelled), to raise money for our nominated charity, Diversity Role Models. At previous dances we have had a good selection of teatime treats including some vegan options.
Tickets: £10 on the door (free entry to members of Essex Church).
