S.M.O.F.S., standing for St. Mary’s over 50s Singles, started up about 20 years ago. Initially drawing from the congregation, it holds out a hand of friendship in a social as well as a pastoral setting to those older parishioners who live alone.

We are happy to welcome anyone who fits the above criteria from a wider area in and around Petersfield to join us for some or all of our gatherings. These include afternoon teas, pub lunches, coffee mornings and the occasional outing and evenings out to local events. Contact the Parish office for more details.
