Parish Groups

There are many different groups for all ages and interests. 

We hope that you will find a group or groups that suit you.
 

An important part of our Church life is the opportunity to belong and to feel part of a Church family. A central element of being a family is interdependence: all are needed and valued and each person is important to the whole. This is sometimes hard with in the larger organisation which is our Team Parish, however we have a number of parish groups in which deeper friendships and relationships can be formed as we journey together on the way of faith. You are invited to join in with any of these groups to meet new friends in our church community.

House Groups

We believe that small groups where people can get to know each other better, share their faith and above all share each other’s hopes and concerns through prayer are an essential part of the life of the church. To enable this to happen we are developing a network of house groups across the parish.

The majority of these groups will be quite general in nature, attracting people from across the parish who want to meet in smaller groups other than our main Sunday services. Other groups will have a particular focus, for example we have: a daytime craft group; we have a play and pray group for those with very young children; those who value healing prayer meet as a group; and we also have a meditation group who meet for 45 minutes of silent prayer. We are aware this will not be everyone’s cup of tea but we hope that the right group exists for you.

If you would like to join a house group please contact Huw

 
Men's Society

The Men's Society welcomes new members and visitors from all the churches in the Parish. We aim to provide fellowship and mutual support for all men in the Parish through monthly meetings, usually in the Half Moon Wilstone and supper is available. We also have occasional social meals to which our ladies are invited.

Mothers' Union

for those over 70 years young

Tring Team have had an active Branch of Mother's Union of just around 30 members in Tring, but recently we have changed to a group of diocesan members. This means we will be meeting more informally and more as a social get together. We will go to the 10am Communion service on the first Thursday of every other month starting in February, and chat over a cuppa afterwards. We have planned several social gatherings as well. Click here for the current list of dates. The get-togethers will be advertised in the pew notices or you can join the email group below.


The members join up with the other Branches in the Deanery for a Lady Day Service, a Deanery talk, and an Autumn Worship Service; and we participate in events organised by the diocese. All that we do is related to the Vision, Aim and Purpose of the organisation which we support both financially and in the way we live our lives. This all sounds very formal, but we are a welcoming group, so if you are interested do come along when we get together.

Coffee Mornings & Afternoons

One of the pleasures in life is getting to know people over a cup of coffee (or tea). We have coffee mornings in the various churches as follows:

St Cross people meet on Tuesday at 10.30am for a their coffee morning, which is proceeded monthly and on special occasions by an Act of Worship.

St John the Baptist also meet on Tuesday for coffee and a chat at 10.30am

St Peter & St Paul has a coffee morning on Friday at 10am when many people come into Tring to visit the market and also serves coffee on Saturday mornings at 10am. Refreshments are also served after most of our regular services. See Craft and a Cuppa page for our Tuesday group.

All Saints meet monthly on the fourth Tuesday afternoon at 2pm for coffee and a chat.

 
Cecilia Tea Rooms

Three or four times a year we hold a Cecilia Tea Room in the beautiful setting of Puttenham

We serve a traditional afternoon tea in the hall next to St Mary’s Church. You can either book a whole table so that a large group can come and enjoy tea together, or you can come along as an individual and meet new people over tea sandwiches and cake. 
All proceeds are given to charity.

Craft and a Cuppa

Craft and a Cuppa is a weekly drop-in group in Tring Church on Tuesday afternoons, 2pm-4pm.

It is a social group where anyone, any age, and everyone is welcome, you don't have to be a member of any of the churches. Our ages range from young mums upwards, we're not telling how old our oldest member is, but we are all young at heart!

You can bring your own craft of any sort, or you can help with sewing tasks for the church. Some of us knitted poppies for the Poppy Project display in church in November 2019. Some are knitting for DENS and other community projects.

Come along and bring something to do, or just come to see what we are doing and stay for a  cuppa and a chat. It is free, but a nominal donation can be made for refreshments.
