We are pleased to announce that Raleigh Road United Church is open for services each Sunday at 10.30am! We are now singing hymns quietly while wearing a face mask.
Please only attend if you are not self isolating or showing symptoms of Covid 19, wear a face covering unless exempt and maintain social distancing of at least 2 metres.
Monthly Morning Chat
On the Third Thursday of every month from July 22nd we will be hosting a drop-in chat morning from 10.30 to 12 noon.
This is aimed at those:
- new to Richmond and Kew and wanting to know more about the area
- wanting the chance to practise English language skills
- those suddenly finding themselves on their own and needing to share with others
- or just wanting to make new friends and getting to know neighbours in the area.
Come and join us for a warm and friendly chat over a hot beverage and biscuits. (Please see What’s On for further details.)
All are very welcome
The Richmond Afternoon Forum
The Richmond Afternoon Forum formerly met on alternate Tuesdays at 2.45 pm between October and April. The next season’s programme will be decided when we are able to resume after the current restrictions. Recent events have included talks about the life of a firefighter, the River Thames Society, travel in Ethiopia, Kew Gardens and the West Middlesex Hospital, all by really interesting speakers, as well as lighthearted entertainments such as quizzes, beetle drives and a tea party. We hope to arrange an equally varied, interesting and fun programme for the next season. £2 donation, everyone welcome.
We hold a series of Bible Studies periodically throughout the year, particularly marking Christian Events such as Advent and Lent, as well as meeting together for four or five meetings at other times of the year.
The Bible Study is usually held in the home of a member of our congregation and is considered a safe space where views can be honest and confidential within the group, leading to lively and enlightening discussions with a sharing of new ideas and information we have each gleaned. Depth of study and participation is entirely up to the individual!
We normally have a monthly support group for women only that takes place in the home of the minister. This is a very informal meeting where we share food and thoughts and we can be ourselves!
When this time of Pandemic lockdown is over we will fix a day and time again.
For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
