Mental Health and the Church

Are you interested in, or affected by, mental health issues? Concerned about how we support vulnerable people in our church and community? If so, read on…

At the request of Bishop Rachel, Revd John Horan is chairing a steering group to consider how churches in the diocese might develop their awareness and understanding of people with mental health issues in the light of our Christian faith. As a first step, the group is piloting a 6 week course at P&J, starting in October. The course, Lifting the Lid, is produced by the charity Livability. Through bible study, discussion, prayer and current information about mental health, it explores how best we can offer appropriate welcome and support within our congregation and our local community.

A sign-up list will appear in the summer. If you have any questions at this point, or wish to express an interest in attending the course, please see John Horan, Clair Chilvers, Catherine Berry or Anne Jones.
