group. There is always a warm welcome, great atmosphere and fantastic activities
and staff at every session” (Claire T – attendee of Little Acorns & Acorns Toddler groups)

‘A friend recommended I attend the Sunday worship following a traumatic
experience which left me overwhelmed, broken and unable to cope. I didn’t know
what to expect and quite frankly thought I would be bored. I didn’t see how it would
help, but gave it go anyway and was pleasantly surprised. The people are lovely
and their support has been amazing. I found that if I skipped a week, I really
missed it. Before, I felt very lost and alone, but I am much stronger now and feel
that I am part of God’s family….that I belong’ (Anon)
