Kintsugi Hope is a charity based in the UK striving to make a difference in people's emotional and mental wellbeing. The word Kintsugi means ‘golden joinery’ in Japanese and is a technique used to repair pottery, arguably making the object more beautiful despite its brokenness. It makes a feature of the scars and Kintsugi Hope’s aim is that this will become the reality in people's lives. Their vision is to see a world where mental and emotional health is understood and accepted, with safe and supportive communities for everyone to grow and flourish.
As a church, we have partnered with Kintsugi Hope to offer their Wellbeing Groups to youth and adults. These are peer mentoring styles and look at issues such as disappointment, loss, anxiety, anger, shame, and resilience. They provide tools to help with the self-management of emotional and mental health issues. Please note they are not aimed at those with severe issues, or under specialist care but we may be able to signpost you to more specialist service providers if this is what you need.
If you would be interested in joining a Kintsugi Wellbeing Group then please contact us. If you would like to find out more about leading a group then please also get in touch although we recommend you try out a group first.
We love Living Waters because...
I have friends to talk to. I feel like I belong.
When: Sun 27th Jun 10:30am - 11:00am
During this Sunday we will be hearing from an external source from the church that we are associated with, this will be a prerecorded session that you will be able to find on the living waters Facebook page.
The idea of a Bubble Sunday is that after listening to the service then we have a chat with somebody about what we have heard. This is a great way of connecting with others may be via Zoom or Facetime although we realise during lock-down this can be tricky.
There will be no coffee zoom today.
