GROUPS MEETING REGULARLY AT EMC
Details below of:
• WELCOME CLUB
• WESLEY QUILTERS
• MINISTRY OF FLOWERS
• LISTENING AT EMC including LOSS AND BEREAVMENT SUPPORT
Welcome Club aims, when lockdown ends, to meet at 2.15pm on the final Thursday of each month in the Lower Lounge. The club combines the qualities and ideals of the Care and Share and Monday Club groups by focussing on friendship, caring, sharing and of course welcome. We anticipate that we will continue to provide an interesting and varied selection of events and activities in the coming months. We finish at 3.30pm with a cup of tea and a piece of cake. We look forward to seeing all our old members and many new ones when we reopen. When we do, please come along and bring a friend as it will definitely be ‘the more the merrier!’
This group was formed in 1985 by the then Minister’s wife and several friends, taking Susannah Wesley (John’s mother) as our namesake. Over the intervening 33 years many ladies have enjoyed being part of the group and we still have one original member. Although we are principally interested in quilting, we are a group who share a love of needlework in all its forms.
MINISTRY OF FLOWERS
Prior to lockdown the church flowers were donated each week in memory of a loved one or to mark an anniversary etc. There is a rota in the church
foyer. Feel free to add your name or send an e-mail. Each week after the Sunday services the flowers are taken out to people who are sick or in need of comfort.
LISTENING AT EMC
Listening: A free service every Tuesday from 10am - 1pm in Roots for everyone over 18 to speak confidentially to a trained listener about anything on their mind. Listeners do not offer advice, interrupt or judge. In addition, we want to reach out to those in the fellowship of our church and the Epsom community who are experiencing or have experienced loss and bereavement, to offer support, friendship and fellowship in a safe environment.
