Who We Are

Here we bring you a brief introduction to the many activities taking place at Dale Street. If you would like any more information, please email info@dalestreet.org.uk.

Church Family Groups

MIDIS

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 celebrated its 35th anniversary in Autumn 2012.

DADS and TOTS

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.

CURRY EVENINGS

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.

LADIES SOCIAL EVENINGS

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

House Groups

Last Monday each month

7:30 pm

This group started as a class group of new church members in the 1980s. Over the years, people have come and gone but there is still a keen interest. The group has a bible study focus. Through it people find great strength in giving and feeling support for each other. Concerns are shared and good times are celebrated. In summer they enjoy a walk together.

Wednesdays

in term time 6:45 pm

This is an informal group of mainly mums, some with pre-school children, who meet weekly. Recently they focussed on some of the Alpha Course material and sometimes they look at topical biblical themes. An individual may introduce a topic for discussion. They are a support for each other in bringing up children and even life in general.

 

Youth Organisations

 

IT'S A YOUTH THING!

Meets 2nd & 4th Sundays each month 6.30pm – 8.00pm (side door, ring bell) and is for youngsters 11 to 18.  It includes food, games and discussion in a very informal setting and once every term we have a social outing (bowling, meal out, sailing etc).

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.
