At St Michael’s we host several events each week, month or quarter focused on helping the older members of our congregation to come together in friendship, worship and safety.
Below you will find details of each event, when and where it is held, along with details of how your can join or sign up.

Over 65’s Lunch

A roast lunch, a glass of wine, good conversation and a chance to meet new people from the local area.

Everyone is welcome, whether or not they come to church.  On some occasions, there is live music, and sometimes the chance to sing along as well.

The next events for Over 65s’ Community Lunch are:

Osbourne Court Sunday Service

Osbourne Court is the modern residential care home that sits right next door to the St Michael’s Centre on North Road in Stoke Gifford.

Once a month, on a Sunday afternoon, we gather there with residents, their families and carers for a simple act of worship together. Our service includes hymns, testimony, a short talk and some prayers.

We also offer a simple communion service at Osbourne Court on a Thursday morning – usually the second Thursday of the month at 11.00am.

Details of particular dates and times will be made available to residents in the care home.

Link Club

The Link Club is a friendly fortnightly gathering for ladies over retirement age.  We meet for conversation and refreshments, and there is usually a speaker as well.

We meet alternately in Stoke Gifford and Little Stoke – hence the name Link Club – because we link the two ends of the parish.

Twice a year we have a coach outing together, once in the summer and once at new year, for a meal.

We welcome all ladies over retirement age,
whether or not they are church members.

When and where

Second Thursday of each month in the
St Michael’s Centre, Stoke Gifford
Fourth Thursday of each month at Little Stoke Community Hall
