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 email@example.com.
Worship at Dale Street
Church Family Groups
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.
This group meets each Tuesday evening in the church hall for a few social games. It’s a good way to blow away the cobwebs and forget some of the problems of ‘normal’ life.
Prayer and Praise Breakfast
This group meets on alternate Saturdays at 8:30 am in the kitchen at Dale Street and start by sharing breakfast together .. cereals, coffee, croissants, fruit loaf, a wide variety of spreads and fresh fruit. Much reflecting and reporting about current experiences occurs - in fact so much that the toast frequently gets burnt. Currently there is a rota enabling everyone to lead if they wish. Each meeting has a different theme. Hymns old and new are sung, and faith is discussed in an informal way. Many people find it an oasis of calm at the end of a busy week and at the start of what might be a hectic weekend.
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.
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.
Action for Children
The Dale Street AFC Support Group are regularly involved with fund-raising events for this charity which helps parents and children. The autumn coffee morning/fayre and ‘Welcome to Christmas’ are long-established annual events. The Children's Centre at Dale Street is supported by Action for Children.
The house-to-house collections and the Mayor’s Charity Walk in May are both well supported by Dale Street.
Leamington Lifeline Alarm Trust
This local charity installs and maintains telephone alarm systems for old or disabled people in the neighbourhood. Each person is visited regularly by a volunteer who checks that the equipment is working properly. The officials and many of the volunteers are members of Dale Street church.
