Every Wednesday, Beaminster’s St Mary’s Church comes alive with coffees and teas, activities, laughter and a sense of wellbeing as it throws its doors open to the weekly Walk-in Wednesday community initiative
Driven by the Beaminster Area Team Ministry of 15 churches in the heart of rural Dorset, Walk-In Wednesday is a place where anybody in the community who feels lonely and isolated, can come together and enjoy the company of others in an friendly and welcoming environment.
A communion service takes place at 10:00 am in the side chapel for those who enjoy traditional worship while other activities take place in the larger church space.
From a play space for pre-schoolers to coffees, teas, cakes and soup served over lunchtime, this initiative is geared towards giving everyone something to enjoy. A folk music group invites you to join in, with recorder lessons taking place in the afternoon.
If you’re partial to a bit of knitting, join the knit-and-natter table where volunteers kindle knit blankets for a maternity hospital in South Africa, supporting the Hug A Baby charity.There’s a book exchange where you can bring your old books and exchange them for something new to enjoy, and an art table where you can try your hand at painting and drawing.Open most weeks of the year (apart from two weeks over Christmas and during the Beaminster festival in June), this initiative is a great chance to find a new hobby, volunteer in your community, and make some great new friends.
Open to everyone!
