COMING SOON:   BREAKING DOWN MENTAL HEALTH BARRIERS

FINAL POSTER JPG small web

This is a free event for the community and is part of the Gloucester Diocese FestivALL celebrations throughout May and June 2018.

All are welcome to attend and there will be craft and activities for families and children. If the weather is good we will have a bouncy castle in the garden. Lunch is provided but we would appreciate you signing up through the link below so that we make sure we cater for dietary requirements.

The main speaker in the morning is Patrick Regan OBE, Chief Executive Officer of a brand new charity Kintsugi Hope. http://www.kintsugihope.com “Kintsugi” is a Japanese technique for repairing pottery with seams of gold.  The word means “golden joinery” in Japanese. This repairs the brokenness in a way that makes the object more beautiful, and even more unique than it was prior to being broken.  Instead of hiding the scars it makes a feature of them.

Please Sign up here  More information will be posted in due course and the programme is subject to change.
