We are a non profit-making organisation with about 80 members; solely for the entertainment, enjoyment and companionship of our members, with monies raised being donated to various charities.

During the year we also hold fund raising stalls, for example ‘bring-and-buy’, cake stalls, table-top sales and plant stalls, etc., to help raise more funds for our charities. We also hold a special coffee evening – in aid of St Helena Hospice.

All ladies are very welcome, and you don’t have to be a member of any church to attend. So please just come along on the appropriate Thursday evening and try us out.

Tiptree Guild of Beer & Wine Makers (Tiptree Tipplers)


Meets in the St. Luke’s Church extension on the 3rd Wednesday of the month 19:30 for 20:00.


New to the village or simply wish to do something different?

We started in 1970 as a wine and beer making club and although members still brew their own and compete in our annual competitions, we are now more of a social club meeting monthly. We are a friendly club of both ladies and gentlemen and mainly couples, with various themes each month, not always about drink and you don’t have to make your own wine or beer.

We have an event or theme each month, some with drinks supplied, others you would bring your own bottle of wine, beer or soft drink. There are always nibbles and sometimes additional food.

We are a very friendly club and you are welcome to come and try out a night for free. Just turn up and make yourself known to Neil or Jenny and bring a drink for yourself.

Why not join us for a hearty breakfast and fellowship? On most occasions it is a full English breakfast; sometimes it is a good quality buffet-style. We as a church aim to bring everyone together as a community regardless of their domination or belief. The Breakfast Club is still running strong, with a steady flow of attendance from the locality. Men and women of all ages are welcome, just let us know if you plan to come. Donations to cover costs are appreciated. 

Breakfast starts with grace to give thanks to God before our meal.

A quest speaker normally from a local charity or organisation then gives a talk to the group, lasting between 20 – 30 minutes with questions and answer time. See the Tiptree URC website for the current programme.

If you feel you can participate by giving a short presentation about your organisation or a subject of general interest please contact Rev. Ken Thom.
