Ceredigion Citizens Advice gives free, confidential, independent and impartial information and advice to everyone no matter who you are, what the problem or how you want to get in touch. For more details see www.cabceredigion.org
Every Monday, Ceredigion Citizens Advice holds regular drop-in sessions, using the meeting room at Emmaus as the drop in centre building.
The drop in was launched in the Lampeter community with visits from Ben Lake MP plus Lampeter mayor Cllr Rhys Bebb Jones, Aberystwyth mayor Cllr Kerry Ferguson and Cardigan mayor Cllr Sian Maehrlein.
The men of the church try to meet for a breakfast once a month to share fellowship and food and banter in an informal setting. Brothers, sons, friends and men in the community are invited to join in the monthly gathering. A short word or topic is discussed by one of the group, which is brought to encourage discussion and questions. As part of our commitment to our Christian ethics, we aim to use, as much as possible, locally sourced produce, RSPCA assured meat, local free range eggs and fair trade teas and coffee. Please feel free to drop us a line if you would like to join us!
Men's Breakfast: (Psalm 55:14)
The Warm Place ('The Hub'): 1 Peter 4:9
We have re-branded The Coffee Stop! and it is now called 'The Hub'. It has been opened up with the café area being utilised as a warm place to serve hot food and tea/coffee to those who are struggling with the spiralling energy costs. At no cost to the individual, couple or family, we serve a hot meal, soup, a curry or stew and a roll with hot beverages once a week as a means of serving any member of the community in need of a warm place to stop and a hot meal to satisfy their hunger. We are open every Friday between 12.00-2.00pm.
(1 Thessalonians 5:11)
Once a fortnight, on a Wednesday, the ladies of the church meet for a shared meal or soup and coffee with cake. The ladies are encouraged to bring sisters, daughters or friends to enjoy good food and to encourage each other. If you would like to come along, please feel free to contact us by phone or Email and we will give you the date of the next brunch.
Senior Citizens: (Leviticus 19:30)
Our Senior Citizens 'afternoon tea'
(or coffee of course!) usually meets on the first Saturday of each month. Anybody who feels like a good wine (maturing with age!) is welcome. The monthly event is enjoyed by a number of the local townsfolk who come to enjoy the fellowship of likeminded individuals, along with a selection of excellent homemade sandwiches, cakes and a drink in the church café. We have quizzes or other activities to create a friendly, warm and welcoming environment. Open to all who feel they fit into the age bracket!
Our art club meets every other Thursday morning between 10.00am-12.00am. Until recently it has been led by the creative ex-art tutor Kate Dennerly, who has sadly had to step down due to ill health. At this point in time, each member does his or her own thing and we help each other as we are able. Any budding Picasso's are welcome to join with us and develop their skills in a warm, friendly environment.
