Enabling mission and Christian living
News on Parish Nursing Project for SEBA
The Parish Nursing Project in Edenbridge was started in 2010 after a very clear answer from God, to the prayer of what shall I do next Lord. Growing and changing organically, it now encompasses a variety of crucial aspects of wellbeing, including mental health support groups, food bank and furniture bank. We are supported ecumenically by the 6 churches in the area and at times our small team of volunteers reflects that mix.
Recent good news is that our Mums’ Support Group (set up when the need became apparent and the local mental health charities could not stretch their resources to start a group based in our town) is thriving and each week we marvel at the way it is transforming lives. It is a secular group, held in the church space and I am regularly bowled over by how God steps in and ministers to us.
More good news is that it has grown its own potential co-leaders, who we are currently training to enable us to run a second Mums’ Support Group, starting in December. Funding, which is covering the training, was donated (without being requested) before the donators were aware of the need!
Points for prayer please:
With many thanks
