In his meetings with his disciples after his resurrection, Jesus repeated said 'Peace be with you'. The word he would have used for 'peace' is 'shalom', a Hebrew word which is arguably better translated now as 'wellbeing' - a holistic term encompassing physical, emotional and spiritual health. Following all the disruption and pain of the pandemic, we may feel we're not doing too well. We want to help. These tools and courses are to support you in finding wellbeing in every area of life.
A good first step is to download and complete one of these 'My pandemic experience' forms from CPAS - you can do this on your own or with your household.
THE WELLBEING JOURNEY
The Wellbeing Journey is a new series exploring holistic wellness: body, mind and spirit. It’s based around seven key areas of wellbeing – the wellbeing mindset, physical, emotional, spiritual, relational, financial and vocational – to help you discover how to run on a full tank.
We'll be running an online group taking this journey on Tuesday evenings from the end of May.

THE BEREAVEMENT JOURNEY
Losing someone is always hard, but bereavement over the past year - whether Covid was involved or not - has had particular challenges and difficulties. This course is a chance to meet, online, with people in a similar boat, to support one another and to reflect on how we can deal with grief healthily.
NEW MUMS' SUPPORT
Most of us are finding life hard at the moment, but if you've experienced as big a life change as having a new baby in the house, it can be especially challenging.
So while other groups are unable to run, there will be a support group for new mums running every fortnight in the Church Centre at 10.30am on Fridays. Pre-booking essential.
Unfortunately because of the need for social distancing etc. we're limited in numbers and to just mums with babies under 6 months old in person but it will be possible to join the session online as well. If you have an older child, please contact us - we can accommodate one pre-schooler per mum.
When everything in our lives is thrown into the kind of confusion and disruption we're currently experiencing, we might start to wonder what life is all about.
Alpha is for anyone who wants to explore those questions. We're meeting online, using Zoom, so you can take part from the comfort of your own sofa. We'll be watching some short films and then talking through our thoughts and experiences together. No question is out of bounds and you are free to discuss as much or as little as you wish.
We'll be meeting at 8pm on a weekday. Details of how to join the Zoom will be sent through by email, please sign up below to receive them.
