St. Pauls Dorcas Group

 

In May 2007 the Parkend branch of the Mother's Union was fading fast and members felt no longer able to continue. So on 20th May a service was held in church for the closing of the MU branch and the opening of the new Dorcas Group,  The name was chosen from Chapter 9 Acts, verses 36-43, members feeling that Dorcas, if not a role model, was someone they could identify with,

The group meets once a month on a Tuesday afternoon at the home of a member, not always the same one but numbers mean that only two or three have enough room for everybody. Usually there is a short introduction, prayers and readings. Whenever possible there is a speaker, at other times a members' meeting for general discussion. This is followed by tea and biscuits. The meeting often ends in the saying of the Grace.

At each meeting members pay 1.00 to the treasurer, this being sent to charity at the end of the year. There is a church service during Lent and an outing in the summer.

 

The group is open to anyone who would like to attend.
