Changes at the Forum and the St Andrew's Afternoon Teas

The Forum came into being in 2004 with the winding up of the Afternoon Guild. Since then it has met twice a month from September to May, on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month.

We shall continue to meet twice a month, on the second and fourth Tuesdays.

In future the meeting on the second Tuesday of the month will be an informal gathering at the St Andrew’s afternoon tea. The meetings on the fourth Tuesday in the month will be in the usual Forum format.

To accommodate these changes there will be a change to the Afternoon Tea dates.

Beginning in October these will switch to the second Tuesday of the month instead of the first.

All Forum meetings and afternoon teas begin at 2.30 pm in the Garden Room, and we shall continue to ask for the small fee of £1.50 for Forum meetings.

Everyone is welcome at any of the Forum or Afternoon Teas and we all look forward to welcoming you and your friends.

Knitters Needed!

Cheltenham Street Pastors are appealing for small items of warm clothing that can be handed out when the weather is very cold. Gloves, especially man-sized and woolly hats would be much appreciated.


Prayer support is always welcome – is that a service you could offer?
