The Gems project is run by BD4 Community Trust from St John’s Bowling Hub, Bowling, and reaches out to the elderly in the BD4 area (and beyond). On Tuesdays we have the Asda bus run, which provides a visit to the supermarket and is valued as a time to meet up to share news and have a laugh. Gems Day Centre meets on a Thursday, with Keep Fit, Indoor Bowls, Wellbeing, and a Luncheon Club. For some this is the only time they get out and socialise, as well as having a good meal.

We hold events involving children from local schools and BD4 Family project and also have trips out during the year.

Prayer requests:

  • ways of contacting more elderly people coming to Gems to take advantage of all that is on offer.
