Community Groups

St Gabriel's Church is in the midst of the community of Cockbrook.  The church building is a flexible space that lends itself to many different uses.  Current community groups include Brownies , Rainbows, dance and exercise classes and Baby Sensory.

A Place of Welcome!   

Mondays 9.30am until 12noon

St Gabriel's Church is opening its doors every Monday morning from 9.30 till 12.00 to invite people from the community in to our building to enjoy a free drink and refreshments. This is not just for church members but for everybody in the neighbourhood who would like to come along.

We hope that people will come along to socialise and just enjoy each other's company. During the morning we aim to provide simple entertainment such as a quiz sheet, some armchair aerobics, bingo, craft activities etc. We are sure that some of you may even have your own skills to share!

However, none of these are obligatory - you may prefer to just sit and chat - and that is perfectly fine!

There is no charge for anything - our aim is just to offer a warm and safe place where people feel safe to connect, belong and contribute.

Do join us! If you would like to come but you are struggling to get there, please call one of us and we will do what we can to arrange transport for you.
