Heather Club  

Registered Charity No. 1015598 

What is the Heather Club? It is a Club/Day Centre, open on Mondays and Wednesdays each week, which welcomes older people who may be confused and/or have memory loss and/or early signs of a dementia illness. It is a place where Carers can leave their relative for the day in a safe and warm environment.

What does the Heather Club provide? Each person attending becomes a Club Member and pays a small subscription which goes towards their midday meal, transport (if needed), refreshments, and the cost of other day-to-day activities in running the club. Transport can be provided to and from the club each Monday and Wednesday, in a specially designed minibus with a tail lift from the Community Action Dacorum fleet, unless the carer wishes to bring the members in themselves. Upon arrival at about 10:00am, coffee, tea and biscuits are served, and then activities take place. This may consist of just chatting, games, such as cards, dominoes, jigsaws, reminiscence, art and craft, armchair exercises, etc. or even just watching what is going on. In the afternoons there is a separate programme of entertainment, group games, outings, etc.

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details here) for our Sunday Service starting at 10:30am. When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team.

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. We also have toilets for the disabled.

Our Service

The main service begins at 10:30am with a warm welcome from our minister or one of our leaders. Then follows a time of sung worship, sharing of news and notices, usually about what's going on in the life of the church. The morning also usually includes a special talk or lesson aimed at the younger members of the congregration. All of this is interspersed with sung worship. Our minister will then give a sermon that is bible-based and which we can apply to our everyday life. We then conclude with a final worship song and prayer. 

After the service we serve tea and coffee in the adjoining hall. We'd love for you to stay and have a drink and a chat. It's a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. All refreshments are free.

What about my children?

We have a programme lined up for children of all ages:

  • Creche (Babies and Toddlers 0-3+ years). 
  • Junior Church (5-11+ years)
  • Young people (12+ years) Stay in service.

Children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service for the welcome, songs and notices. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. At some stage of the programme someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go to their various groups. However, on the second Sunday of each month we have an All-age Service, which, as the name implies, is a service suitable for all age groups. Children don't go out to the various groups on these occasions, but stay in the service.

The children's group activities vary depending on the age but usually there is a friendly welcome, bible stories, testimonies, praying, music, craft, drama, fun games and free play. Please collect your children as soon as the service finishes.

Getting Connected


Small Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.

Serving and Volunteering

If you want to get involved in the life of the church and help us make Sundays run smoothly, you can sign up to serve on a team.
