You are invited to


12 noon to 2pm at the church on Thursday 7th December at the church repeated on the first Thursday of every month


No charge, donations welcome.
We would be delighted  if you would join us!

First, thank you to Sue Dargavel, Sheila Laming and Maria Austin for working with the District Council to ensure that our kitchen and other facilities meet Health and Safety requirements.

Secondly, we have two teams of 5 people in place to run the club, on alternate months, so we are grateful that so many have signed up. The first 3 sessions were on 6th April, 4th May and 1st June. After this, we continued with the pattern of the first Thursday in every month. Doors will be open from 12:00 (noon) till 2:00pm.

Thirdly, We would like all fellowship members to consider who they might like to invite along, OR, you might like to come and have your lunch at the club and be available to chat to those guests who come unaccompanied.

Thank you,  John Phillips and the Lunch Club Team

Thanks to everyone for praying for our first lunch club event and for your support. Sheila Laming, Maria Austin, Becky Gladstone and John and Hilary Phillips were the organising team, with Mike Pilling offering some practical help. A few fellowship members came along for their lunch and to help with the general welcome.

We had two guests from Cromford, one from Matlock Bath and one from Matlock. We hope they will come again! The soup and sandwiches were tasty and we felt that we achieved what we hoped: a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, with a nice buzz of easy conversation.

Do please continue to hold the venture in your prayers and consider who you might invite to the club over the next few months.  The second one was on Thursday 4th May and as well as the soup & sandwiches Irena Smith kindly baked an Apple Crumble Polish Style. Hopefully she will find time to provide more excellent Polish Cuisine at future sessions.

“Michelin Guide” Review: The Matlock Bath Lunch Club – by an attendee!

The Community Action Group at Holy Trinity are behind the Matlock Bath Lunch Club which takes place on the first Thursday of each month from 12 noon to 2pm in Trinity Hall.  There is someone to greet you with a warm welcome as you enter the church and a variety of home made soups on offer, served with a smile. Sandwiches are made to order and tea and coffees are available too.

It is a lovely relaxed affair with light chatter, plenty of laughter and no washing up afterwards. If you haven’t been then I highly recommend it !……

Congratulations to ……


Maria Austin, Sue Dargavel and Sheila Laming who have just received the top rating (a level 5) for their work in the HT kitchen and also made scrumptious soups ready for the launch of the Matlock Bath Lunch Club next month.
