Connect Groups are a great opportunity to connect with others around a variety of interests, across our cities and regions.
Connect Groups usually meet at least once a month. They include a whole range of interests; sports, crafts, hobbies, leisure & professional interests, and not forgetting food!
Take a look at the variety of groups we currently have available to join, or if you have an idea for a new Connect Group you would like to run, please let us know by clicking Start a Connect Group.
Grand Adult Coffee Mornings
Join us for our weekly coffee mornings every Tuesday from 10am - 12noon at KingsGate. We have other activities too including; lunches, breakfasts, outings and trips, talks and films.
Fancy getting fit and scoring some wonder goals in the process? Come along to our fortnightly 5-a-side football kick-about. Open to all ages and skill levels. Once you have signed up we will provide further details.
Meeting monthly for anyone with an interest in gardens. We will visit gardens of all types, from grand houses to small cottages, individual gardens and open days. We look for ideas and inspiration, combined with an opportunity to sit (over refreshments) and discuss all that we see.
We will walk circular routes of five/six miles in various beautiful locations. We will walk, chat and hope for sunshine! Come and join us.
Knitting and Crochet
We knit and crochet together, have a drink and get to know other people. Bring along a project you are working on or come along if you would like to learn - beginners welcome. We meet every other Tuesday.
Meeting on the first Saturday of the month at a Peterborough restaurant, we are a multinational men's group of varying ages. All of our members are involved in the business world, and we regularly have a 10 minute business/devotional slot as part of our breakfast meetings.
Whatever your level of ability or previous experience, KingsGate Dance is an opportunity to learn a variety of dance techniques, meet new people, and keep fit in a fun environment! We meet every Friday, 6:30pm-7:30pm.
Fostering and Adoption
This Connect Group is for families who foster or adopt or special guardianship families and those who are passionate about supporting such families. We meet bi-monthly to get to know each other. Children and extended family are always welcome at our gatherings, with a great range of activities available, so let us know your interest then come along and enjoy the fun!
This group brings together the Romanian community from in and around the Peterborough area. We spend time eating together, playing games, watching films, speaking Romanian and getting to know each other. We meet once a month, on a Saturday. Families with children are welcome.
South Asian Connect are families and individuals with connections to the South Asian region and its people. We offer friendship and support to each other and help connect South Asian families into the life of KingsGate. We aim to befriend and integrate with other families in the wider community from the region, through outreach events and social engagement activities.
This group will meets on the first Thursday of the month, from 3:00pm. We each choose a selection of books to read plus two classics in the first meeting of the year in January, that makes eleven books a year as we have a break in August.
We read the book over a month and come together for coffee and cake (when not on zoom), to discuss the book and other stuff, which is also when we reveal the book for that month.
Anyone can join - you just have to like reading! It's not all Mills & Boon, we have a varied reading list. If you are up for an afternoon of discussion once a month then just sign on the dotted line and start reading.
Books are not provided, but you can purchase most online at Amazon and there are some good second hand copies out there, ordering via your local Library or Kindle is a very good alternative, (although I like to hold a book in my hands, I'm old fashioned that way).
So we look forward to meeting you at our next Book Club Meeting.
Cycling for Softies
Easy cycle rides around Peterborough and surrounding villages. You don't have to be a pro at cycling, you just need to own a bike and a helmet!
