Activities & Groups


St Hildeburgh's has many and varied groups and activities. For young people, there are 'Voyagers', 'Messy Church' and 'Mums & Tots'. For the whole community, there are activities such as the 'Bacon Butty Brunch' every Tuesday. For senior citizens we have a luncheon club and a monthly soup & sandwich lunch (the latter caters in particular for those in residential care homes). For others, there is 'Pearls' (a monthly social and speaker group), Mothers Union and Ladies Guild. There is a social committee that organizes regular social events including the annual Christmas Tree Festival in December. We have an active choir - to which new recruits are always welcome.

Bacon Butties

Ladies Guild

This important and dedicated group arranges the flowers and festival decorations and ensures that the church is kept clean, tidy and generally 'spic and span'!
