A friendly local band of bell ringers with St Mary's Church in the Old Town of Beaconsfield.
We practice ringing on Friday evenings, and ring for church services on Sundays. We also ring for weddings and other life events.
We have enjoyed a choir at St Michael’s church for many years and it mostly serves the 10am services, though when we can we sing at weddings and funeral services too.
We meet most weeks on a Tuesday night for practice of the weekly hymns, and also prepare particular pieces for occasions during the church year for example at Christmas for our Carol service, or anthems to reflect special themes.
The Choir is a friendly group of men and women ably supported and trained by Alan Lewis, our organist. We welcome new people with some, none or much experience of singing in choirs – all we ask is that you enjoy singing and try to come as much as you can.

We are a lively group whose aims are to promote knowledge, and appreciation of decorative and fine arts through lectures, study groups, and guided visits to private houses, exhibitions and museums.
Under normal circumstances our lectures are held at the very comfortable Fitzwilliams Centre behind St Marys Church in Beaconsfield Old Town on the first Thursday of each month, except in January, August, and September. We have two sessions, a morning group which meets at 10.30, and an afternoon group which meets at 13.45 but we hope you can come earlier and join us for coffee beforehand to meet fellow members. We are pleased to hear from anyone interested in joining us. Currently we are in St Marys Church where social distancing is possible and if possible the morning lecture is streamed. For up to date information please visit: https://theartssocietybeaconsfield.org.uk/
The Bridge for Beginners and Refreshers group is both for those members who have never played cards before and those who would like to refresh their knowledge of the game.
The group meets in the lounge room of St Thomas’ church hall, Mayflower Way, Holtspur
We meet in each others' homes on the second Thursday of each month. We read one book per month, each group member taking it in turns to select a book.
At meetings, each member has a chance to give his/her views, followed by a general discussion.
The aims of the group are to have a provocative and interesting exchange of views between members on subjects in the news. Venue St Thomas Church, Holtspur.
Every effort is made to ensure that each member has the opportunity to air his/her views which leads us to how large the group should be ? 10 to 12 is the ideal size, the 18 we had on one occasion being too many.
As a conversation group, we ask that members are not beginners and have had some experience of making themselves understood in German. We will be a mixed ability group – so yes, plenty of mistakes but the object is to attune our ear and thinking to German rather than English. We will be encouraged to speak entirely in German (except during our tea break) by our good fortune in having one or two fluent speakers come along for moral support. Some material will be circulated by email before the meeting if members wish to prepare something on a chosen topic with a nudge towards useful vocabulary, but otherwise are encouraged to bring along material of their own choosing.
Currently meetings are held in the Lounge at the rear of St Thomas’ Hall, Holtspur, starting at 1.45pm for about an hour and a half, on the first Tuesday of the month.
Please check website for updates: https://u3asites.org.uk/south-bucks/page/76034
We are a very friendly crowd and are always pleased to welcome anyone who may be interested in joining us. Meetings held at St Thomas Church Hall.
Our choice of subjects is widely varied and our talks come from volunteers in the group and also from occasional guest speakers. Talks are either given using computer presentations, talking about an item of memorabilia.
I addition to meetings, we organise trips to places of historic interest – recent visits have been to Winchester, Stratford-upon-Avon and Southwark Cathedral. Future plans are to visit Salisbury and St George’s Chapel, Windsor.
The Painting & Drawing Group welcomes everyone, regardless of ability, even beginners.
We are a very sociable group who enjoy working together and chatting about what we are doing. Some of us are beginners, some have been painting for many years, some belong to regular art classes, some just value this monthly opportunity to begin or develop a picture.
We choose a different theme each month, ranging from seasonal to still life, landscape to floral, with the occasional “free” session such as Think Large, Let yourself go, Extending the Theme, but anyone can work on their own if they wish.
We bring our own materials; water and tables are available and there is a tea break, when we admire each other’s work and chat about painting and drawing.
Venue: United Reform Church Hall
The idea is to taste a few wines in convivial company once a month.
In true U3A fashion the costs of the consumables for any meeting will be shared among the attendees.
