Joining in with Warm Spaces
If your church or wider community are getting ready to create a welcoming, warm space again this winter, you might like to join the national launch event on Wednesday 4 October at 7.30 pm. Follow this link to sign up for the online event.
Warm spaces are so much more than providing physical warmth, as we all know. It has been amply demonstrated that having a safe place to go – to be genuinely welcomed and known by name, thus being able to connect with others and feel that you belong – is vital for many people in our communities, of all ages. Prolonged social isolation has been shown to have a significant, detrimental impact on physical, mental and emotional health. So, whatever you offer – a café, a lunch club, a drop-in facility, an advice centre, a prayer space – be encouraged that you are making a difference in people’s lives.
