Kentish Gadabouts

Fridays - Buchan Hall, 1.45pm – 3.45pm

We’re a local, self-supporting scheme
Non-profit-making, with this theme.
Let’s make friends and find more pleasure
In sharing interests and leisure;
Theatres, trips or weekend breaks;
Whatever form our fancy takes, 
We’ll meet for coffee and a chat
To talk of this and talk of that
And choose what we would like to do.
‘Together’ means cheaper and more fun too!

Both clubs join together for day trips; supper clubs and holidays.

For more information and details of venues for our club please email.

Mothers' Union

First Wednesday of the Month – Front Room

The Mothers’ Union is a Christian organisation with more than 3 million members in 76 countries, which promotes the well being of families worldwide.

Here at St. Mary’s we have a branch of about 50 members (including single people and men). We have a programme of events which includes a monthly meeting, usually on the second Thursday of each month, at 10.15am in Church House. We have talks on a wide range of subjects, frequently by someone representing a charity, sometimes historical, sometimes of a more spiritual nature. We have a good record of fund raising to provide holidays for families undergoing a difficult time and to support overseas work, particularly supporting the MU Literacy and Development Project.

On the first Wednesday of each month there is a Communion Service in the church arranged by Mothers' Union for all members of the congregation. This is at 11.30 a.m. and is followed by a simple soup and cake lunch in Church House (£2) to which all are invited. There is no need to book, just turn up.

You do not need to attend meetings to be a member, just to support the MU aims and objectives. This suits some of our younger members who work in the daytime. Many of our members are carrying out voluntary work with the Sunday Club, the Thursday Baby and Toddlers group and work in the Parish Primary School.

For more information contact Margaret Eames (Branch Chair), Mary Fall (Branch Treasurer), any Committee Member (see notice board in church), or visit the MU websites or

Knit and Knatter

Every third Thursday – Front Room – 10 – 11.30am

Knit and Knatter for Charity was set up by St Mary’s Mothers’ Union for anyone who wishes to knit for a variety of charitable causes. So far, we have contributed scarves, mittens and hats for the Mission to Seafarers, Easter chicks and bunnies for the Deaf Access stall, baby hats, blankets and cardigans for a hospital in Tanzania and coats and blankets for Battersea Dogs’ home.  We meet on the third Thursday of each month from 10am to 11.30am in the Front Room of Church House. Although knitting can go on in our own homes, sometimes enthusiasm is lacking and we need to be encouraged by others to keep going. Hence the idea of getting together socially with our knitting.
