OPEN DOORS

OUR MINISTRY TO OLDER PEOPLE




OPEN DOORS is our ministry for some of our older members. It meets alternate Tuesday afternoons in the Main Church Hall on Fairfield Road Beckenham. Each week there is either group bible study and discussion or a Speaker Meeting with Afternoon Tea.

Once or twice a year there is a trip out into the Kent or Sussex countryside and there is always a special celebration at Christmas.

We aren’t old or crumbly so you needn’t worry that OPEN DOORS is the next stop on the way to the day centre!  We’re active, fun, we enjoy each others’ company and we love the Lord Jesus. We hope you will get in touch so that we can make your first visit a really happy time.

We go on some wonderful day trips like reliving the glorious days of steam on the Bluebell Railway in West Sussex. Here some of us are enjoying a cream scone as the loco took us through some wonderful countryside.

Every other Tuesday afternoon we meet for Bible Study because we know that we are never to old learn about Jesus.

Everything seems to come with tea, on the weeks when we have a speaker we also serve Afternoon Tea. It is a wonderful atmosphere and the home made cakes are delicious.

On the Tuesday afternoons when we are not in our bible study groups we have really interesting Speakers who bring us a Christian message from their life’s experiences, their work or interests.
