Meet up Mondays is all about, well, meeting up on Mondays...

Our next get together is on Monday 8th July 2024

 We're trying to make it easy for our Holy Family parishioners and visitors to get together in a light hearted way, in a warm environment, and to enjoy each others company. There is no charge but we do have a raffle for £1 a ticket.

Come along to our next Meet Up Monday on Monday 8th July from 10am-12pm.  

At June's Meet Up Monday, we welcomed Sister Catherine from the Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul who gave us a very informative talk about her order and her work within it. She is a great speaker and had us all laughing in some parts and being very moved in others. Thank you for coming along Sister Catherine and we hope to see you again soon. After the talk, one group moved on to the next stage of watercolour painting and another group made delicious lemon and cardamon biscuits. If you have been wondering whether you might enjoy Meet Up Mondays why not come along next month on Monday July 8th. We will be learning some drawing techniques and having a (non-alcoholic) gin and tonic tasting session. Come and see what it's all about!

A huge thank you to Margaret Whiteside for donating lots of arts and craft materials to the Parish. They will be very well used! Two boxes of card have also been taken to Holy Family School.

We are looking for parishioners, with some arts and crafts expertise, who would be willing to come along to Meet Up Mondays to run one-off sessions. In particular, if anyone is skilled in card-making or knows how to get the best use from a Big Shot card-maker then we would really like you to get in touch via the Parish Office.

This is a great opportunity for all members of our congregation to get together.

You are welcome to join in at any time and to leave when you are ready. We have hot drinks and a variety of activities on offer.

We'd love to see you!

We are hoping to have some practical activities suitable for all at each event.

The kettle's on, and we'll have some gluten free goodies if you need them, as well as cake and biccies.

No booking, just turn up around 10am and we'll finish at 12.

You are very welcome to bring along your own painting, knitting etc to work on during the session if you prefer.
