A new club for adults with learning disabilities launches on Sunday 5th January 2020.
The Rich Tea Club for adults with learning disabilities opens its doors for the first time at 3pm on Sunday 5th January 2020. The group will meet regularly on the first Sunday of each month from 3pm to 4.30pm at the Countess Free Church, Ely.
Members of the Countess Church and friends from other churches across Ely have come together to launch this new club to create a space for people with learning disabilities to experience the richness of life in the Christian faith.
Cate Allen, co-founder of the group, said, “Rich Tea Club desires for church to become a more accessible place for people with a learning disability … Everyone is of value and has something wonderful to offer. Rich Tea Club aims to be a place where we will all be growing in our uniqueness and learning from each other.”
Meetings at Rich Tea Club will include Bible stories and time to share news and reflect, as well as activities such as crafts, music, singing and drama. There will of course be hot and cold drinks and biscuits!
Margaret Human, the other co-founder of the group who has recently started independent living, says she just can’t wait for the first meeting. She said, “We are going to have a cup of tea and do lots of activities – maybe some word-searches and jigsaws. We want everyone to come along and join in and have a good time.”
The Rich Tea Club at the Countess Free Church will be a place to have fun, share faith and build friendships for adults with learning disabilities, plus any carers and friends. Meetings are the first Sunday each month, 3pm–4.30pm. To find out more call Cate on 07425650454 or visit www.countessely.co.uk
