Older People’s Groups

We have various groups and activities for older people at St John’s, Westwood.  If you would like to find out more, please contact us.


High Mileage is a chance for those with wisdom and experience to get know David and Caroline and each other better. We’ll simply spend time enjoying each other’s company and maybe some good tea, coffee and cake (please bring the cake!). One of us will bring a thought for the day.

High Mileage is at 10-11 am on the first Monday of the month in the Trinity Room.


Oasis was started many years ago when there was little Christian presence at the Burton Green end of the parish.  It is a coffee morning at which a range of speakers have given a Christian witness.  It meets at 23 Hodgetts Lane on the first Wednesday of each month. Numbers have increased over the years and there has been a good change of people who came.  All are welcome as it is a very friendly meeting.  Most people now attend the monthly service at Burton Green.


Time Out is a group of those who are retired or at home during the day to meet together socially once a month and to which we hope people will bring their friends and neighbours.  Numbers coming to coffee mornings have been sustained at between 30-40, with the Strawberry Tea in Tom and Judy Walters’ garden attracting 60 people last summer.  Outings to places of interest in the summer months are appreciated by those without their own transport.  All are welcome to join us. We would particularly value help from anyone who could offer lifts.
