Older people

We really value the older people in our community. St Mary’s provides a number of ways for those of retirement age and beyond to meet together:

Services at Homebeech and Ebbage Court – bringing church to these two retirement complexes, for residents who find travel difficult (monthly)

Cameo
CAMEO is a group of friendly people meeting at St Mary of Bethany twice a month from
10.30 until midday. We call one of our monthly sessions ‘Pick N Mix’, its open to everyone
whatever your age, a chance for a tea or coffee, and chat and if you want to, join in at one
of the interest tables around the room. Come for the whole session or just to say “Hello”,
we would love to see you.

On alternate sessions, we have a wide variety of things for you to enjoy. These may be
listening to a speaker, we may have a quiz “type” activity and then there are the sessions
where we can get to know each other better.
