Wellbeing Cafe

Following advice from the the Church of England all meetings and activities at St Giles Church

are suspended during the current Covid-19 (Coronovirus situation).

The information below details our normal activities for Wellbeing Cafe.
We will hope to restart these again as soon as we are authorised to do so by the Church of England.


The St Giles Wellbeing Café is a place of community, hospitality, and support, open to all but with a particular emphasis on those affected by mental health issues.  The café operates weekly on a Monday afternoon between 1pm and 4pm in the main church building and provides a quiet, friendly environment to meet and talk with others over tea and coffee with the added option of engaging in practical activities such as crafts and board games.

As well as being a place for community, the Wellbeing Café is rooted in the Christian practices of prayer and contemplation.  Each café session revolves around a simple pattern of reflective prayer which is led by one of the Team within our designated ‘Prayer Space’ – set slightly apart from the other activities.  All visitors are welcome to engage with these short times of prayer, but are under no compulsion to do so.  The Wellbeing Café welcomes people of all faith backgrounds and of none.

The St Giles Wellbeing Café draws on a model developed by Renew Wellbeing, from whom we continue to receive ongoing support and training.  More information about the charity can be found on their website: http://www.renewwellbeing.org.uk/
