New Meeting Nights
Each evening starts at 7.30pm in the Pearsall Room, and finishes about one hour later. These get-togethers and friendly discussions are always very informal, cordial, entertaining, and sometimes we even learn things!
Why not give it a go?
A peer-led and inclusive community for young adults, parents, singles, 18+. On the First Tuesday of each month we get together to share friendship, stories and community.
Friday Chat Cafe
Every Friday morning between 10.15 am and 12.30 pm our `Chat Cafe` is open in The Pearsall Room, both for refreshment and chat. There is excellent tea and coffee on offer, plus cakes and biscuits. It`s a good place to meet new or old friends, and a place of comfort for anyone in need of company.
Why not drop in ? We`d love to meet you.
Friday 14th August, 7.30 pm. Show Report.
`Live Entertainment at New Meeting`as part of the Kidderminster Arts Festival (KAF).with Chloe of the Midnight Story Tellers:`Scheherazade`s Shed`
Well, what a night! We were promised comedy, pathos, story-telling for adults, cabaret, poetry and a feminist perspective. Chloe and the team certainly delivered. In the fading dusk of our wonderful New Meeting setting, we were led on an enchanting trail of eastern promise, intrigue, comical adventure and mystique. Where else in Kidderminster would you experience an audience that can collectively contribute to a compelling story involving love, Star Trek, acme and trans gender ?
This was a tremendous night arranged together with the excellent organisers of the KAF fortnight. Chloe was superb, and the three support poets and story tellers sublime. This event was an example of how being a direct part of our extended local community really does bring benefits for all. We very much hope to develop these links in the future.

Also performing on the night was Worcestershire Poet Laureate for 2015, Heather Wastie. Check her out at www.wastiesspace.co.uk. plus, Nigel Knowles, a Kidderminster Councillor and Roy Peacock, Stourbridge Historian.
Throughout the year post-Sunday service, we join together to share a meal, usually in a local pub, but sometimes as a `bring and share` at New Meeting.You are very welcome to join us.

Christmas Panto and Party
There is nothing quite like the live entertainment offered up at the Kidderminster Palladium each Christmas, here at New Meeting. For the best and most unforgettable Christmas Show in town, book early once the `Show Date` is finalised. This show always sells out (and not just out of sympathy !). New Meetings` own performers have traveled the world for their art, so for one night only, this never knowingly understated event offers the chance to view huge talent in one small space, working through a humbling script. More information anon ! For more information contact Ash James on the contact page.
