Care and Share
Anyone can suffer from poor mental health and a quarter of us will experience a mental illness at some point in our lives. As Christians, we believe that we are well-placed to provide hope, love and practical support.
At Care and Share we welcome people who are experiencing mental distress in an affirming and non-judgemental atmosphere. We offer the support of prayer and someone to talk to in a safe, nurturing environment. We organise activities to help people cope with normal stresses of life and recover from mental illness. People learn new skills, have fun, make friends and share their concerns. We are there for everybody. Support workers often bring new people to join us.
People do not need to be experts in mental health to help (we’re not!) We can stand alongside those who are suffering and hold out Jesus as the source of hope. We welcome the support of anyone in the church who feel they would like to join us.
