Wednesday Fellowship

The Wednesday Fellowship meets in the Lower Hall at Christchurch from 2:00pm to 3:30pm most Wednesday afternoons between September and June.

Historically, this was a meeting for older women, but men and women are now welcome to attend on a regular or occasional basis. Younger members would be particularly welcome! Some of us are well established members of Christchurch, but we also have a significant number who have moved to Ilkley and find our meeting a good place to develop new friendships, whether or not they attend any Church.

We enjoy a wide variety of speakers, some of whom entertain us, others share their experiences of working in difficult situations, or travelling to far flung places. There is always a devotional aspect, with members taking responsibility for the opening worship and regular visits from our minister. 

You are most welcome to join us. If you would like further information please contact Val Appleton or Joan Loach via the Church Office.
