…is the women’s group for our church and is open to women of all ages, whether you attend Surrey Chapel or not.

We meet once a month and alternate between social evenings, when we drink tea and coffee, munch cake and chat (with optional games / quizzes etc for those who wish) and events evenings, when we have more formally arranged activities.  These range from trying our hands at various crafts to taking part in a self-defence workshop, so we try to cater for every interest! As well as nights based at Surrey Chapel, we go out for meals and visits together.

Active8 is a brilliant way to meet new friends and to support and encourage each other too.  If you haven’t been before we would love to see you.  Most meetings start at 8pm at Surrey Chapel (unless otherwise stated) and you can be assured of a warm welcome.

There is normally no cost to come to Active8. We do encourage people to donate towards the cost of refreshments each month.  This money goes to supporting the Raincatcher charity: http://www.raincatcher.org/

There’s no compulsion to attend all the events, just dip in and out and choose the ones that interest you. You can find the latest programme for Active8 events here

Some events have been so popular that some separate groups have been set up.

Craft Saturdays 10am – 4pm

These run every couple of months – come for the whole session or just part of the day.

Bring your own craft work and enjoy the company or pick up new crafts and techniques from others.

Refreshments are provided but bring your own lunch if you are coming for the whole day.

Surrey Stitchers Mondays 12.30 – 4.30 pm

These afternoons run monthly, usually the last Monday in the month for anyone who enjoys sewing.  Come along and join us.

We are learning how to make quilts for the Linus Project (comfort quilts for ill, abused or bereaved children – http://projectlinusuk.org.uk).

Tea and coffee (and often cake) are provided.
