Our local community is at the heart of all that we do in and around St Edward's, and the needs of our community take priority over everything else. As this aspect of our work has developed over time it has become clear that it is no longer “the Church” providing facilities for the wider community: rather it is a large community (over 300) of people who share aims and responsibilities, and care about each other. It is a community drawn from all walks of life, and from quite a large area. Many feel that what happens at St Edward’s is worth travelling some distance to take part in, and worth the contribution of significant effort. These are a few of the organisations that people can participate in.
Forget Me Not Café (meeting online via Zoom - planning to return to face-to-face meetings shortly): Tuesdays 2pm-4pm at St Edward's in the Community Hall and in the Church. For people with memory problems and their carers also people recovering from a stroke or people who feel isolated and vulnerable.
