Renew 88

Renew 88Stressed? Feeling Hassled? Need somewhere to unwind? Or just to get outside your own four walls and talk to somebody?

Renew 88 is here to provide a space to counter all those things that get us down.

It’s a space where it’s OK not to be OK,
for games and crafts.
A space to just sit and relax,
or to share a hobby or skill.

We serve tea, coffee and a listening ear and it’s all free.

Or you can just sit!

We’re open

Monday 2.00 – 4.00 pm
Friday 10.00am – 12.00 Noon

and we’re open as normal in the holidays. 

Just turn up! a relaxing game of scrabble

The activities are based around the ‘five ways to wellbeing’ which promote good mental and emotional health.  

To connect
To give
To be active
To keep learning and 
To take notice 

and will contribute towards the improvement of mental health after the COVID crisis
 

Renew Wellbeing was born out of a concern many of us have about wellbeing. Today 1 in 4 people have a diagnosed mental health condition in our nation and we know that there are many more who, although not diagnosed, are struggling with issues around mental and emotional wellbeing. Our local council and NHS services are at full stretch and facing further cuts. Renew Wellbeing believes they have found a way for local churches to partner simply with their mental health teams to provide spaces of quiet inclusion and wellbeing. These spaces are good for the church and the community. They help churches get involved by setting up their own wellbeing cafe and encourage partners in local councils and businesses to help see wellbeing improve in their area through involvement in these spaces.
