Pilates works to strengthen the body from the inside out, targeting the deep postural muscles of the core, which stabilise and protect the spine. When practised regularly Pilates re-balances and re educates the body into perfect alignment. Pilates is a safe, low impact, form of exercise which is suitable for all levels of fitness and ability. Pilates is particularly beneficial for those seeking relief from back and/or joint pain, postnatal recovery, abdominal toning and strengthening, recovery from injury. If you are unsure about whether Pilates is suitable for you, please feel free to get in touch. Classes in the church hall on Monday and Thursday evenings

Sacred Harp is a great opportunity for people who love to sing. You don’t have to be a professional singer, just come, join and enjoy
We all sing from a book called the Sacred Harp, first published in the 1840s in America. It contains folk hymns, fugues and anthems in four part harmony. Most of the songs have Christian lyrics but you don’t need to be religious to sing this music. In fact most of us in Bristol aren’t. Singing is free and people can come as often or as little as they want. Our youngest regular singer is 21 years old oldest are in their 80s. Quite a few of us have kids and the little ones come to our daytime events too. I had never sung a note in life, but it was so welcoming (and everyone else was singing so loudly) that I soon lost my inhibitions and started singing out as loud as I could. I’ve been doing it regularly for the last 5 years and it’s given me the confidence to sing.
The group hires the hall once a month, for more information see their website
