Wednesday Group


This is a women's group which meets fortnightly on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm in the main hall at Menston Methodist Church and has a current membership of 60 ladies.

The programme runs from September to May with a variety of speakers, social evenings, demonstrations, and includes a Christmas and Easter service.  Each meeting starts with a hymn, short prayer and reading.

On occasions when a speaker will be of particular interest to a wider audience, 'Open Meetings' are held to which all are invited (including men!) to attend.

Short evening walks are arranged during the summer months when the Group does not meet.  Details about the walks are put in the weekly Sunday notices.

The Group has just celebrated its 50th birthday having originally started life as 'Young Wives', then 'Wives' before taking its current form, of the 'Wednesday Group'.

There is an annual membership fee of £10 to pay and a donation of £1 for each meeting attended.

The Goup also supports a young girl in Thailand through Compassion and there is an opportunity to make a small donation to this cause at each meeting.
