Every Thursday morning between 9am and 12pm we hold our Renew Well-being Centre (please see our Church Calendar for more information) in the main worship space at the front of the church on Baldwin’s Lane. We are connected with the national charity Renew Wellbeing.
Renew Well-being is basically a quiet welcoming space where it is ‘ok to not be ok’. Whether we are anxious, lonely, struggling with mental health issues or just needing a quiet space to pray and be with other people, Renew offers an oasis in a fast moving world. The morning is structured only around prayer which is optional and is a very accessible and non-threatening quiet time. We break for prayer twice - once half way through the morning to name our concerns and requests before God, and once at the end to bless the rest of our day. The rest of the morning is spent sharing our hobbies, doing crafts and puzzles and chatting together or just enjoying the sound of others chatting. All ages and backgrounds are welcomed and any barriers seem to disappear over a shared cuppa and gentle company. You can even learn a new skill - like crocheting! All of us, whether hosts or guests, find the morning at Renew gives us a peaceful centre to our week.
If you would like to drop in and see if Renew Well-being could be your ‘cup of tea’ please do just join us in the church between 9:30am and 11:45am on a Thursday, or if you would like more information please speak to Sara on 07816 830058 or Rachel on 07795 285638 or email us. We would love to see you there!
