Renew 193 – Wellbeing Space
As a church we are working in our community in partnership with the other Baptist Churches in our town (Milton Baptist, Worle Baptist and Locking Parklands), to provide a space for people who are struggling with their mental wellbeing.
Renew 193 – Wellbeing Space, is based at 193 High Street, Worle, Weston-super-Mare.
‘We will be open Mondays to Thursdays and would welcome anyone, particularly those feeling low, anxious, lonely or isolated, to benefit from this quiet shared space where it’s ok not to be ok,’ said Revd Steve Christian, one of the projects joint founders.
Renew 193 is part of a growing chain of wellbeing centres being set up across the United Kingdom by Renew Wellbeing.
Renew Wellbeing helps churches open spaces of welcome and inclusion in partnership with mental health teams to improve mental and emotional wellbeing.
Renew spaces are simple cafe style spaces designed for adults run by local churches where hobbies and activities are shared or co-produced. Each cafe space is attached to a quiet room or prayer space where inner habits of wellbeing are shared.
Each centre seeks to partner with a mental health professional from the local council or other suitable organisation to ensure good inclusive practices for safe spaces can be sustained.
Renew 193 is open at the following times:
Monday – 10am – 12noon
Tuesday – 10am – 12noon & 2pm – 4pm
Wednesday – 10am – 12noon & 2pm – 4pm
Thursday – 2pm – 4pm.
(Closed on Bank Holidays)
‘All are welcome to relax and enjoy peace in our quiet / prayer space. People can pop in for a short while or stay for the full 2 hours, whatever suits them. Above all, we assure everyone of a kind welcome, a good cuppa and someone to listen to them if that’s what they want,’ said Becky Allison the project co-ordinator and another of the joint project founders.
