The Inbetweeners is a very informal social group with members in the ‘middle generations’ who feel themselves too old for youth club and not yet ready to join U3A! We aim to get together around once a month for activities such as a Sunday afternoon walk, or attending a local music concert or art gallery preview nights. We take it in turn to organise and host events – summer barbeques are particularly popular, and like all good parties, end up with everyone in the kitchen!
Very gradually the Inbetweeners are getting more involved in church life – joining church committees and taking on some ‘church jobs’, such as shadowing the caretakers and becoming welcoming stewards. Some members have attended ‘believing and belonging’ sessions and find Inbetweeners gatherings to be an opportunity to talk to others about their journey into faith. More often though, conversations rotate around ‘non church’ matters, such as managing the work-life balance (or life without work), coping with growing children and aging parents, and where to go on holiday. All the usual stuff of working age people who lead busy lives, who find refreshment through sharing life’s ups and downs with like-minded friends and relations.
