Social & Cultural
The Social & Cultural Committee is the beating heart of SPS.
You may not want to come to every service, or sit on a Committee – but who doesn’t like a quiz? Or a walk in the park? Or some Crazy Golf?
Our programme is always published on the SPS web site, with plenty of notice so that you can put our events in your diary. Come along on your own, with family or with friends – you’re always welcome.
There may be a small charge for some of our events, but we try to keep these to a minimum.
