Branch Treasurer: Jean Dilkes 07732 971653

The Branch meetings are held in St James’ Rooms next to the church on the second Wednesday of every month at 7 pm and the fourth Thursday at 1.30 pm.


Branch members donate items and contribute to organisations that support families who are going through tough times. They organise, provide and serve at Church Lent Lunch as well as many other church activities. They also wait on at funeral teas held in St James Rooms.

Our Mother’s Union runs the Tiddlers and Toddlers group at All Saints.

Joining us is a good way to make friends and find support. On each evening, there is a short act of worship, a speaker or activity and then light refreshments.

During the year, we have a number of other social events, day trips and visits, all good fun, and we often help raise funds for areas of need, e.g. the homeless.

Why not contact us, and we can make sure someone is waiting to welcome you?
