Churches together in the Ryde Area (CTRA).
We are a group of representatives from Churches of all denominations from around Ryde who meet together to hold events (such as the popular Summer Songs of Praise by the beach, the Civic Service, and Carol Singing) and get a better understanding of faith in Ryde.
For information on all church events please go to www.rydechurches.org
We are a local volunteer run drop in centre based in Ryde on the Isle of Wight set up to help those most in need.
We opened on the 17th of April 2011 and are open every Sunday evening at St Mary’s Catholic Church, High Street, Ryde from 5-7pm.
The Open Arms provides a wholesome meal and a hot drink and also offers a signposting service for support and advice.
We rely upon the support of volunteers in the centre itself and the generosity of local businesses via donations of food and services to facilitate this community project.
