Somers Park Methodist Church
From September to Easter there is a ‘Games Evening’ every fortnight in the Church Hall. We play a variety of games - from table tennis and (small table) snooker to draughts, scrabble, ludo, shove halfpenny and many others.
All over the age of 11 years are welcome - there is no upper age limit. Men and women, girls and boys, all join in. The evening is from 7.45 pm to 9.00 pm if you are under 15, or 10.00 pm for everyone else.
Through the season we hold tournaments in most games. These start in October and entry forms are available in the church vestibule or at the September Games Evenings. There is tournament entry fee of £1.50 covering entry to as many tournaments as you wish to enter. There is also a charge per evening of 60p (30p for young people) which includes the cost of refreshments.
Further information is available from Jennifer Bryers (01684 575773).
We are a friendly group and would welcome more members.
Membership of the Junior Church is small, but there is a loyal group of children who attend each Sunday. Each year they are presented with books for regular attendance.
Every Sunday morning the children join the congregation at the start of the service, and the second hymn is always one of their choosing from “Junior Praise”, after which they go to their own lesson in the small hall. During this time they do various activities in connection with the stories they are learning about from the bible, including drawing and making cards for special occasions, growing bulbs and sometimes making something to eat which they then take home.
If you would like to come along on a Sunday morning and join our activities the children would be very happy to see you, as would the teachers - Sue Amphlett, Anne Bennett and Avril Phillips.
