Regular Events

Coffee morningsUpper Chapel Strollers walking group, monthly

Upper Chapel Strollers are a walking group who meet once a month on a Saturday. The walks are generally quite gentle. Participants include members of other local chapels and friends.

Upper Chapel Striders walking group, walks arranged on ad hoc basis

Upper Chapel Striders take on more challenging walks (hillier/longer) than the Strollers.

Music Together, monthly

Music Together is for those who wish to explore an appreciation of an eclectic variety of music genres. Two home concerts are performed in the Chapel per year, with the proceeds going to charities.

Women’s League, monthly

Women’s League arranges a monthly programme of speakers and visits which are open to all of the congregation and other Sheffield District chapels.

Discussion Group, monthly

The Upper Chapel Discussion group meets monthly to discuss a variety of topics of concern in areas around modern living, current affairs, psychology and spirituality. In a similar vein we also run a monthly 'Life Spirit' group looking at the deeper questions of life, based on the book by Rev David Usher.

Poetry group, monthly

Bring a poem or three: favourites, classics or your own work! In a similar vein we also run a monthly Sharing Circle where people can bring poems or prose or music or anecdotes or...

Quiz/game night, monthly

Quizzes at the moment. Board games will reappear as the pandemic eases off.

Meditation Group

The Upper Chapel Meditation group has been suspended since the pandemic but hopefully will restart during 2022.

Alternative Gathering, monthly

Our 'Gathering' (first Sunday of the month at 2.30 pm) provides an alternative (and explicitly non-dogmatic and organ-free/pew-free/prayer-free - i.e. almost "non-religious") space for considering life's meaning and purpose.

Coffee mornings, two times a year

Coffee mornings at Upper Chapel are significant occasions, not only being great chances for members and friends to get together socially over tea, coffee, and cakes, but also often with excellent entertainment and goods for sale. Money raised is donated to very worthy causes.
