OUR MONTHLY MEETINGS AT LEIGH WESLEY METHODIST CHURCH HAVE RESTARTED

PLEASE CHECK WITH GROUP LEADERS THE POSITION REGARDING INDIVIDUAL GROUP MEETINGS

MEETINGS COMMENCE AT 2.30. DOORS WILL OPEN AT 2.00.

Our monthly meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of the month at

Leigh Wesley Methodist Church

Elm Road

Leigh-on-Sea  SS9 1SJ.

PLEASE NOTE THAT DOORS ARE NOT OPEN UNTIL 2.00PM. AS SPACE FOR QUEUING IS LIMITED, PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE TOO EARLY (especially when cold or wet!)

Meetings will usually start with notices and items of group news, followed by a guest speaker. Refreshments are available afterwards so members can chat to friends or maybe the speaker.

There is no charge for attendance and not only that but you can get a cuppa at the end all free of charge; so pretty good value.

Please note that we are not permitted to use the car park attached to the church; however, there are small pay-and-display car parks in Elm Road (at rear of Leigh Community Centre/Police Station) and off North Street (east of the Wesley Methodist Church) but these do fill quickly. Parking on nearby streets is limited so please check local parking restrictions.

If you have any suggestions for speakers, please contact our Speaker Secretary by clicking the link.

It is helpful to know what you think of our Speakers, please give feedback here.
