The Drop-in group meets at Charis House on Wednesday mornings at 09.30 for two hours. It is a relaxed and fun supportive group with opportunities for everyone involved to find their creative spark. The group consists of current residents, ex-residents and other women and children from the community.
This is a fun and informal group which in partnership with GNFC, is facilitated by the Community Arts Group. Specialist art therapists guide and train through the whole process from planning to production. Using a wide of media, participants are introduced to new skills, for example Felting, Ceramics, Shadow Puppetry – even a choir!
Every Thursday at 4.30pm we meet for a short, informal time of worship and discussion about how we can better understand the love of God, this is followed by a meal and time to eat and socialise together. Current residents, ex-residents and members of the community are invited to be part of this time.
Join us on the first Friday of every month at 9.15 am for a coffee morning. There will be a wide variety of people, fun and laughter as we meet with existing and new friends as well as having a great time sharing about the vision and work of GNFC. A range of crafts made by the residents and the community will be on sale, everyone is welcome.
