Haven Memory Café at the URC

Haven Memory Cafe offers a warm welcome to people diagnosed with memory problems or dementia, along with a relative, friend or carer. It meets in a comfortable setting in the centre of Thornbury, in the United Reformed Church building.

It provides a welcoming social atmosphere, with tea, coffee and home-made cake, and an opportunity to chat to friends and volunteers. At each session there is a short activity, which is often musical, usually with an invitation to join in, or a demonstration or slide-show. NB The cafe is not a clinic, though there is often a Dementia Support Worker present.

The Memory Cafe meets on the first and third Friday mornings of each month, from 10.15am - 11.45am. The entrance is in Chapel Street, and is accessible to mobility scooters. There is car parking around the church, although it is often busy on a Friday morning.

St James' Church

St. James' Church dates back to 1170, the first Rector was Robert of Wych from 1275 to 1309, then in the Worcester Diocese. The church is the focal point of the village, set at the cross roads, opposite the village pub, village green and playground. The building itself has changed very little since it was first built, except for The Chancel being shorted by ten feet in 1779 as it was in such a poor state of repair! That is not the case now and it is well cared for with a good organ and a very enthusiastic team of Bellringers.

Thornbury Quakers

Quakerism is a way of life built upon principles of truth, equality, peace, simplicity and sustainability rather than a written set of beliefs, and Quakers have a long-held commitment to putting their faith into direct action in the world.
Quaker meetings offer a place where people can find a real sense of community and are free to challenge, question and explore their own beliefs, values and ideas. Many Quakers describe it as a spiritual home – a place of deep connections; a group of people bound together by an awareness of the sacred in all things and a desire to change the world for the better.
Thornbury Quaker meeting is held every Sunday 10:30-11:30am in the Chantry, Castle Street. You do not have to be a Quaker to attend a meeting. All are welcome.
For more information telephone Maggie on 01454 413535 or click below.
