‘Giggles’ is a monthly meeting for ladies of the church and our local community. The quirky title ‘GIGGLES’ stands for Girls In God, Growing, Loving, Eating & Sharing.
We gather together as ‘Girls in God’ – all shapes, all sizes, all ages! No matter how we are feeling or what we believe in, God is with us - that’s His promise.
We are all ‘Growing’ that’s for sure, and we should be looking after our minds and bodies – keeping active mentally, physically and spiritually.
‘Loving’ – caring, helping, supporting, encouraging and building each other up and being ‘there’ for each other.
‘Eating’ – is a key part of our evening together, whether it’s nibbles, a snack or a main meal it’s always something to be enjoyed.
‘Sharing’ – it’s a safe environment in which we can share our joys and sorrows; our gifts and talents; listening to each other and encouraging each other.
We usually meet on the fourth Monday of each month in the Coffee Bar, which is situated below the main Hall alongside the church, accessed either by steps between the two buildings or the ramp going down towards New House Court flats and under the church porch. We have a subscription of £1 each month which offsets expenses incurred through the year. Drinks are purchased over the Coffee Bar and some sweets are available – fair trade chocolate included!
We have an inclusive, varied programme of events which has included fun & games, sports on a Wii, quizzes, a baby shower, chocolate lovers evening (including looking at the origins of fair trade chocolate), favourite songs and hymns, guest speakers on various topics e.g. The young Princess Victoria, pamper evenings, film nights, how to plant a hanging basket, exercises, suppers with a speaker, meals out, summer day trips to National Botanic Gardens, Carmarthen, and Lindors Country House Hotel & Monmouth and much, much more.
Through the fun and friendship of this group we seek to encourage each other and to build a bridge between Church and Community to show what the love of Jesus can mean to everyone.
