You may have seen the 'Wednesday Welcome' sign outside the church on the corner of Breezes and Wainoni Roads, and wondered what it is exactly. you may have even received an invitation in your letterbox, or seen a notice at your pre-school or doctor's rooms.

So what is it, and what do people do there? The idea was to provide a space where people could meet, relax, and have a bit of food and company and something to do. It is held in the church hall from 10am to about 12.30 or 1pm each Wednesday. It is a lovely warm and friendly environment that starts with a yummy morning tea. Folk soon gather around their favourite activity, which might be just chatting, playing cards or table games like Scrabble or Rummikub, there are several types of puzzle books available and also some adult colouring books, pencils and felts. There is a large adjoining space where babies and toddlers can play with a variety of toys. All ages are welcome, from babies to 80's and more.

We have a well equipped kitchen in the hall, and around midday a good lunch is provided. We have served toasted sandwiches, soup and rolls, pizza and garlic bread, and quiche (not for real men, of course!).

We also have a 'bring and take table', if you want to give away stuff you don't need, and you are free to take away anything you could use. It has proved a popular provision and we have had to bring out a bigger table for everything that is brought in!

So, If you would like a place to meet with others and have a warm and relaxing place to be during the week, then please come along and see how you like it. You will find a warm and friendly welcome.
