Please note that some of these meetings have not restarted after the Covid lockdowns.
Women's Fellowship meets on a Wednesday afternoon in the Harroway Room. The meeting starts at 2.30pm with notices and a short 5-10 minute devotion prior to an invited speaker, demonstrator, presenter. We finish around 4pm having had informal chit-chat over refreshments. The programme is varied including topics covering the locality of Darlington to far flung places around the world. Demonstrations and practical sessions are included along with some performance style presentations.
The group meets on alternate Thursdays in the Harroway Room at 7:30pm. The meetings generally include talks, discussion and entertainment with different topics led by visiting speakers. Occasional supper evenings and demonstrations are held during the programme. New faces are always welcome at any time.
Elm Ridge has House Groups which are held at various times from Monday to Thursday and Sunday evenings in members' homes. These are an opportunity to get together and discuss topics in an informal way, whilst getting to know each other in a more relaxed atmosphere. If you would like more information, please contact the Church office. The House Groups meet fortnightly.
A warm welcome awaits you on a Monday morning at Elm Ridge. Come and enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee or tea and cake in our Church Hall. On warm sunny days, take your coffee outside and experience the peace and tranquillity of our beautiful grounds. There is no charge – donations are welcome. A Monday morning is a busy time in the life of the church and a chance to see what is going on at Elm Ridge, a good time to meet with your friends, or to make new ones.
Lunch Club meets on the second Tuesday in the month at noon to share a simple meal. The food is prepared by Age UK and Elm Ridge provide the venue and the volunteers. Come and join us for a time of fellowship, food and friendship. For more information or to confirm dates, please contact the Church Office.
There is a trail around the grounds, at each prayer station there is a thought provoking message and an opportunity to pause and think.
Our grounds contain some very old, large trees and flower beds and a wonderful view over to the River Tees. There are plenty of benches spread around the garden ready for you to stop and rest and enjoy the peace and quiet of our tranquil setting.
