MEN'S FELLOWSHIP

Our Men's Fellowship group is run jointly by Ridgeway and Elburton Methodist Churches. The group meets every two weeks, monthly at Ridgeway and also monthly at Elburton. Meetings take place on Tuesday evenings, usually the second Tuesday of the month at Ridgeway, at 7:30pm. There is always a visiting speaker as well as a time of fellowship. For more details please see the church diary.

PARENT AND TODDLER GROUP

During term-time, the Church organises a Parent and Toddler Group which meets on Tuesdays and Fridays. Fees are £1.20 per session, and we provide tea, coffee, orange squash and biscuits. Second cups are available, but there will be a small charge! We are able to provide changing facilities for babies. Children can now join the church Pre-School from the age of 2½, but once they reach the age of 3 years unfortunately we will not be able to accommodate them at Parent and Toddler.

PATCHWORK GROUP

On Tuesday mornings from 10.00 am until 12 noon our Patchwork Group meet in the Church Lounge. As well as being an opportunity for fellowship, the group has made several banners which can be seen in the Church. The group also made a banner for a school in Malawi as part of a renovation project supported by Ridgeway School.

OTHER GROUPS

Various daytime activities take place in the Church during the week. On Saturday mornings our OASIS Coffee Bar is open from 10.00 am until 12 noon in the lower hall. Money raised often goes towards Church funds but we support many other activities through the Coffee Bar as well. At these events as well as on Sunday mornings fairly traded tea and coffee is used, and fairly traded products are also available at the OASIS Coffee Bar from the Traidcraft stall. Coffee is also served from 10.00 am on a Wednesday as well, in the upper hall, and is followed from 12 noon by cooked lunches.

The Church has a badminton group, which meets on a Friday afternoon to play in the Church Hall, and we also organise monthly Dartmoor Walks on Saturdays. For more information on any of the events at the Church please contact us.
