Are the effects of the lockdowns and restrictions imposed by Covid still leaving you feeling a bit anxious and uncertain? Do you find the prospect of dark nights and short days over the next few months a bit depressing? If so, this could be for you.
Many people over the last two years have suffered from social isolation, loneliness, a loss of confidence and just feeling very low. For the past few months we have been exploring ways in which we could offer support and help. We have now decided to work together with an organisation at Durham (RT Projects) who are specialists in these areas. With effect from week commencing 8th February we have arranged six ‘taster’ sessions which will provide a range of creative activities (art, craft etc.). You do not need any skill or ability in these areas – you would not be preparing something to be shown at an exhibition! Experience has shown that just taking part in creative activities can improve self-confidence, reduce anxiety and raise self-esteem.
If you are interested please contact the Church Office (Tel: 3881313 or email firstname.lastname@example.org). The sessions, which are free, will be limited to twelve people, therefore, it’s advisable to contact the office as soon as possible.
A little booklet entitled ‘CORNERSTONES – A JOURNEY OF FAITH’ has been produced. It tells the story of Cornerstones from its unlikely beginning because of a leaking roof to the thriving entity it is today. It tells how the Church members worked very hard to raise the funds to build our beautiful suite of premises, the official launch of Cornerstones in 2010, and how it has grown and developed over the years since. If you’d like a free copy of this fascinating booklet, copies are available at the Church Office.
