• Holmes Chapel is a Fairtrade church
which means that whenever
  refreshments are served, they are from Fairtrade sources

• Regular Fairtrade events are held in the church  –  to spread interest and
  awareness, and motivate the congregation to buy Fairtrade produce in their
  regular shopping

• We have a monthly sale of Fairtrade items after worship

More to Life?
     
This group is for women who ask ‘is there more to life than this’.
 
We enjoy a mix of light-hearted and more thought-provoking evenings.  We have hilarious games evenings and have a go at card-making, learn about stress management, discuss the changing role of women previously and now, and enjoy a Christmas meal together.
 
When we first tried Circle Dancing, it was so much enjoyed that several members went on to  travel to a special class each month.  We are now looking forward to their tuition of the rest of us!

 
This is not just another social group.  Instead, we are there to provide mutual support and encouragement as we explore various aspects of life, taking a look at the glimpses of God we see in those aspects and allowing safe exploration of spirituality for women of all faiths and none.

 
We are always grateful to those who have led evenings, inspired us with their stories, and made us laugh, think and learn.
