Renew @ the Hub, NoctonBack to Support
Renew @ the Hub (part of Renew Wellbeing charity) is a simple, cafe style space supported by local churches where hobbies and activities are shared or co-produced. We currently meet every Thursday from 9.30 am until 12 noon - pop in any time.
This is good for wellbeing because
- We are something between a cafe and a front room. We're not a service and we're not professionals, however, we have lots of good signposting information, and our aim is for each of us to both give and receive, sharing our hobbies, ideas or welcoming words with each other.
- Renew is based around the Five Ways to Wellbeing: Connect - talk, listen, make friends, help others; be Active - join in, enjoy nature, move your mood, take Notice - reflect, pray, find joy, keep Learning - join an activity, teach your hobby, surprise yourself! and Give - your time, your words, your presence.
- It is strengths-based and co-produced. This means we recognise every person who comes through the door has gifts of head, hands and heart to share with others. What we build at Renew, we build together.
Renew has been a life-saver for me. I was made so welcome by the lovely group of diverse people. I was supported through some bad times and through crafts and chat have regained confidence and enjoyment of life. It is by far my favourite activity of the week!
Each cafe space is attached to a quiet room or prayer space where inner habits of wellbeing are shared, with no obligation to take part. Each Renew partners with a mental health professional from or other suitable organisation to ensure good inclusive practices for safe spaces, where 'it's OK not to be OK' can be sustained.
Help yourself to fresh brewed coffee, various teas, hot chocolate, squash, cake, biscuits and fresh fruit.
Being prayerful • Being present • Being in partnership
The Renew Wellbeing charity provides information, inspiration, training and ongoing support to local churches as well as developing a simple national strategy for many small safe spaces to be made available through churches and councils working together.
