This ladies’ group meets on Tuesday evenings twice a month at the home of one of the members. The meeting is usually based round a talk or an activity in which all can take part. Husbands are welcome on special occasions. The group joined in a celebratory meal to mark its 40th anniversary in September 2017.


A group of fathers (and grandfathers) of pre-school children bring them to Dale Street most Saturday mornings between 9.30 and 11.30.
They can compare notes over a butty and tea or coffee while the children play with an extensive range of toys.


This is a Saturday afternoon session for children under 8 and their families. It happens every two months and is theme based with a Bible story and matched activities.  All are welcome!


A dozen or so men from Dale Street and other local Methodist churches meet at an Indian restaurant on a Friday evening every two months or so.


This new venture has so far been based on a meal together at a local Italian restaurant.

Youth Organisations


This contemporary worship service with a live band is based at Dale Street and takes place at 8pm on the 4th Sunday of each month.  Each session has a theme and a speaker and much use is made of multimedia. Expect experiments in worship. This service is open to anyone and is especially popular on Christmas Eve. Check out the Twitter link.

Operating as Dale Street Scout and Guide Group, thriving uniformed organisations are available for young people across the whole age range. They take part in all the activities associated with the Scout and Guide movement and produce their spectacular gang show ‘Daley Sketches’ every two years. Explorers will be found as young leaders in several of the junior sections.  For more information, please send an email.

Linked Organisations

Age Concern

Age Concern Leamington Spa run Lunch Clubs on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in the hall at Dale Street. Volunteer drivers fetch and return members in a minibus and hot meals, coffee and tea are served. Members are occasionally entertained by groups of children from local schools. For more information or to register, please send an email.

Action for Children Support Group

We organise a series of lively events during each year that are family and community based. We aim to give entertainment and interest and we raise substantial amounts of money to further the work of this important Methodist charity. 

Friends of Homewood

The Methodist Church supports MHA which provides care for older people – primarily through a group of Methodist Homes throughout the country. 
Dale Street has strong links to “Homewood”, the local Methodist Home in Leamington Spa. 
Friends of Homewood provide extra support for the residents through visits and raising funds to enable the residents to receive occasional treats.

Christian Aid

The house-to-house collections and the Mayor’s Charity Walk in May are both well supported by Dale Street.


Also, see our Links page for details of these and other charities supported by our activities.
