There are currently NO services at St John’s due to the 2nd lockdown. We are open from 11am to 12 noon on Wednesdays during November for private prayer.
Helping older people connect with and strengthen their community.
Join us every Thursday morning for Tea, Cake and a Chat.
10:00am until 12:00pm
St John’s Church Community Room
Our Thursday morning social sessions are for local people aged over 60. We engage in a host of activities including craft, music, local history and art. The community events are a great place to come and make new friends and we are always happy to give you advice and support for your current situation.
ASPIRE seeks to address social poverty and bridge ethnic and inter-generational divides in Birkby by reducing the isolation of older people and improving community relations. Each session has been designed to provide education and support; helping older people engage with contemporary culture and social change.
We already have a good number of older people in regular attendance, growing steadily each week. Our hope is that participants will develop a greater sense of significance, through serving each other and members of the wider community, in the weekly sessions and elsewhere, and as a whole.
We hope to reach out to meet needs and benefit the community for many years.
