This is a way of life and the steps learned can be used to remain free from addiction, or unhealthy behaviour, and is a way of life that leads to freedom from: alcohol, drugs, food, gambling, anger, lying and the many more addictions that exisit. You're not alone, you won't be judged and all are welcome. Confidentiality rules apply within this group. The 12 Step Life Recovery Bible & work book is used, this is based on the AA 12 Steps, but is intertwined with passages from the Bible and true life examples of how the behaviours control us. You do not have to be a Christian to join this group, you will not be preached to we are hereto listen to one another, reflect on our situations and get through these challenges by learning from one another. When the group reaches 10 people we arrange for a second group to be formed. We meet in the café.

Regularly I pray for people, especially when they have problems coming from ill-health or loneliness and I pray for their encouragement too. Also I pray everyday for close family. Often when I am praying for individuals it is that they are in good health, are happy and free from hardship.
I believe in prayer. I believe that a person can sometimes know that they are being prayed for too. I need quiet time which in a busy world is often hard to find in life. During the lockdown, praying, walking and listening to God turned out to be a very precious and peaceful part of the day whilst on my local allocated exercise walk.
