Our country is facing a mental health crisis. It is a crisis that predates the pandemic, but there is no doubt that the pandemic and the cost of living crisis have exacerbated its impacts dramatically.
As with so much of the church’s ministry, the often quiet, yet deeply effective work that long predated the pandemic was thrown into the spotlight when communities most needed it. As we hear more and more about the mental health crisis, the work that churches are already doing is once again in the spotlight, and is inspiring others to consider how they can respond.
On 18 May 2023, the ChurchWorks Commission in partnership with Waverley Abbey College is gathering Church leaders from across the country to explore how we can effectively respond to the mental health crisis. This conference is an opportunity explore how we can practically support the wellbeing of our communities, hear from experts on topics such as social prescribing, chaplaincy and training courses, and connect with one another.
We would love for you to join us.
18th May, Westminster Chapel. Tickets available here.
