Hope Chapel exists to provide a sanctuary - a safe place - for anyone and everyone. That includes providing a place of refuge in times of difficulty or stress. So, recognising the growing need to promote wholeness and wellbeing, particularly during current times of uncertainty, 'Renew Hope' is part of a national network of cafés based on the Renew Wellbeing concept. Planned to open in November, the nationalm lockdown means this will hopefully open in January.
A Renew space is a place where anyone can suggest an activity, share a hobby, learn a new skill, make connections and be signposted to any help they need. It is a space where it is understood that we are all on a sliding scale of mental wellbeing and where it is possible to access help from the council’s mental health team without referral. It is a space where any faith and none are welcome to belong, to reduce social isolation and deal with the causes of mental and emotional ill health. It is a space where people can encounter God’s love and develop healthy inner practices of prayer and meditation.
