UBC Men’s Shed
Men’s shed is a place where men can work and meet up. We meet Tuesday and Thursday 9 am to 12 midday.
Our shed is equipped with tools and materials donated by the public and local Rotary and we are set up mainly for woodworking, however we are open to suggestions for projects. If you are interested, please contact the UBC office
Sometimes also known as house groups or small groups, they meet every two weeks in various homes, for bible study and christian fellowship. Please speak to the Minister or one of the Leadership team for further details.
Not surprisingly, First Wednesday takes place on the first Wednesday of the month from 10-12a.m, and is for all ages. It is a mainly social occasion, various demonstrations, quizzes and talks giving opportunity to meet with others and enjoy conversation, and activities varying from month to month.
Regular visits are made to two residential homes for the elderly in Upminster. Please contact us for further details.
