Gathering groups

Gathering groups are many people’s first point of contact with the Ashford Vineyard community. We have a great range of groups which are always full of fun, laughter and sometimes even involve cake. We want to see communities where quality friendships are developed, and people feel comfortable enough to just be themselves. We would love to see you at any of the groups we run. Everyone is welcome and you can come along to as many as you like.


These are the Gathering groups we offer

Coffee Club

Coffee club meets on the third Wednesday of the month, 10.30am-12pm at The Beehive. It’s a great place to meet new people over coffee and cake. We’d love to see you there!

We are meeting online every week apart from the third Wednesday, from 10.30am to 11.30am. Please see What’s On for the link – it’s a great way of staying connected during this challenging time!

Book Club

We currently have a range of evening book clubs running in Ashford each month. It’s a great place to gather together, eat cake and read a variety of books!

Sadly, at the moment, we are full to the brim! But do watch on here, and facebook, for updates

If you would like to go on a waiting list to join one of our book clubs, please leave your details on the contact form or email
