Compassion Group

Compassion is a group for those who have been bereaved.  We meet every Monday afternoon (not Bank Holidays) 2.30pm – 4pm, in the Parish Centre, for tea, cakes and chat.  Towards the end of the afternoon, we have a time of thought provoking Reflection with a Spiritual content, and the afternoon always ends with a prayer.  You don’t need to let us know, please simply come!

Friendship Group

The Friendship Group is for lonely people who cannot get out on their own. The group runs from March to November, on the last Friday of each month. We go for pub lunches, cream teas and garden centres around the area.  Please contact Margaret Lee on (0121) 445 5226 to request a membership form, or if you would like to offer help as a driver.

Lunchbox

Come to the Parish Centre on the second Wednesday of every month (except August), where we serve lunches from 12.15pm to 1.15pm.  The hot meals are home cooked and served to your table by our team of helpers. You can choose from 3 main courses (including 1 vegetarian option) and a selection of desserts, followed by tea or coffee, for just £4 per person!

Studley Bell Ringers

We meet in the Church Tower for practice on Thursdays 7.30pm – 9pm, and to ring for service on Sundays 9.15am – 10am. We also ring for occasional weddings, for which a fee is paid, and make an annual outing to ring in other Towers. Contact Tower Captain Rachel Page for more information (01527) 852238.

TRAMPS Walking Group

TRAMPS Walking Group meets on Wednesday evenings from May to August to go for a tramp/walk. Different walks are put on each week and are usually 3 – 4 miles.  The 2017 programme is available here.Tramps Walks 2017 final

The walks are not just for church members, but for anyone who would like to come along.  Please contact the organiser of the walk on the particular day you are interested in for more information, or simply turn up at the meeting point and look for the group of people standing around in walking boots!
