What happens when Weyfinders meet? Well, we really enjoy ourselves; we like going out and about, visiting the countryside and garden centres, and places of interest that will appeal to all. Our yearly Valentine Lunch is an absolute must, and, just like our Christmas Lunch, it is always very popular. While the Christmas Lunch seems to mark the beginning of Christmas for us, mention must be made of our summer afternoon Cream Tea, sometimes on Portland - it’s a favourite haunt. We are grateful to those who take charge and organise these popular events.
The team plans the years’ programme; we have occasional speakers, Musical Afternoons, DVD’s and holiday memories. Regular Coffee Mornings occur throughout the year when Weyfinders invite us to their own homes, always with a warm welcome and sometimes in their gardens during the summer months. It’s a real catch up time for chatting and getting to know one another.
We go on holiday together, usually in September, and have enjoyed the Isle of Wight, Devon, and Wales, etc. It’s a real time of relaxation, walking, Christian fellowship with others, and simply enjoying each others’ company.
We are aware of reaching out into the community, encouraging others to come along and see what we get up to. Started in 1997, some of us have been with Weyfinders since the beginning and have enjoyed every moment.
We have limited funds, but we have been able to support young people in the church now serving the Lord in many ways, as well as other church charities.
Weyfinders have many ways to use the gifts God has given each of us. Just because we are of mature years we remain young at heart, open to new ideas and welcome change. We still have many opportunities, day by day, to make new friends and care for each other in times of difficulty and illness. We feel much encouraged to be living in this beautiful area and being able to share it.
Do not miss this opportunity by staying at home. If you are new to the area, or on your own, Weyfinders is just for you, and we look forward to meeting you. Anyone requiring a lift can get in touch - if we can help, we will.
