Nurturing Our Faith (currently suspended)

Nurturing our Faith group meets regularly to learn and share our experiences of faith, including bible reading, prayer and open discussion. 

The group is open to everyone, whether you are just beginning to think about what faith means to you or whether you are further along your faith journey.  

For those of you who may be thinking about baptism, renewal of baptismal vows or confirmation, the group is an ideal way to explore your thoughts and develop your growing faith.

Singing Group

Our singing group, led by Barbara Pollard, rehearses at   6 - 7 pm on Thursday evenings in St Stephen's church. 

We sing a wide variety of music, including church choral music, popular songs, musicals - in fact, anything that we think we would enjoy.  We perform at special services in church and also at events such as the Harvest Supper. New members are always welcome - you don't have to read music to sing with us and we provide practice CDs for you to rehearse at home.  We rehearse most weeks but it's always wise to check first before you come along.

If you're interesting in growing fruit and vegetables, you might like to consider our allotment group.


We keep a waiting list of people wanting to take up a plot, so if you live in East Hardwick village and you want to start growing your own, then why not put your name on the list and when a plot becomes vacant, our Allotments rep, John Pollard, will be in touch and you're ready to go.

The handbell ringers, led by Moira Hames, play a variety of music from hymns to folk songs and perform at our special services and also at the Harvest Supper.  New members are very welcome.
