Prayer and Study
A weekly Bible study group meets from October to May in Whittington Church following the 9.30am Thursday Holy Communion service. There is coffee at 10.00am and the study begins at 10.15pm. There is no study when the monthly coffee morning, Coffee and Company, is being held‘.

Prayer is offered in church for people who are ill, and for the families and friends of people who have recently died. We are also happy to pray confidentially for people in any kind of need.

Friendship and Support
Coffee & Company is a monthly coffee morning in church, offering refreshments and an opportunity to chat and make new friends.

We also have a number of fundraising events each year, including concerts, Lent lunches and a summer barbecue. These are a good opportunity to meet new people and we are always grateful for offers of help.

Please check the parish magazine, the "Ripple" for more detailed information on all of these activities.
