"Senior Moments" aren't a bad thing here at Garstang Free Methodist Church. We value our older members and are keen to provide a supportive, friendly and enjoyable experience for all. That is why we have various activities going on throughout the year, as well as the normal church services.
See below for details of our regular activities and look at the calendar to see what we have coming up.
Join us on for free tea, coffee, and biscuits as well as the chance to chat and make new friends. It also includes a short 'pause for thought' given by various people from the church.
Friday Lunch for the Older and Wiser is a two course lunch provided by outside caterers. It is a great opportunity not only to enjoy good food that someone else has cooked but to share a meal with others rather than eat alone.
We show a film on our big projector screen & serve refreshments. See the notice board at the back of church for details of film showings and times or check the online church calendar.
Our craft days are very popular, with a range of different crafts on offer. Try your hand at card making, painting, flower arranging etc. These days can be great fun and relaxing for everyone, whether they feel creative or not.
At times we may organise a day trip to a place of interest.
We try to address problems and questions relevant to older people.
We visit three residential homes in the area each month to hold a service.
Bowgreave Rise: first Sunday of each month at 10.15am.
Westwards House, Croston Rd, Garstang: second Sunday of each month at 2.15pm.
Stanley Lodge, Forton: last Sunday of month at 9.50am.
