A day of exploration on Mental Health led by Revd Andrew Howorth

Date: Saturday 4th May
Time: 10:00am for 10:15am to 3:30pm.
Venue: Yeadon Methodist Church

Mental ill- health can affect any of us at any time. Why is it still so often hidden from view or even stigmatised?
Thinking of our congregations and the community, how can churches respond with care, compassion and understanding?

The day combines expert input and group interaction, and is designed to help us:

  • Know more about mental health issues across all ages
  • Gain a deeper understanding of the experience of the sufferer and their family/carers
  • Explore the practical responses of the church
  • Reflect on how our Christian theology can inform positive approaches

Deacon Jenny Parnell will be present as Chaplain throughout the session.

Revd Andrew Howorth worked in the NHS for 24 years as mental health Chaplain, and whilst working in the Trust took on responsibility for the anti-stigma work, positive mental health engagement, the establishing of a carer support group, and many different patient feedback groups.

He is now working at Bradford University and as associate Priest at Menston Parish Church. We are delighted he will be leading the study day for the circuit.

Bookings by 26th April to Mike Fawcett via email at: admin@wandamethodists.org.uk or Tel: 078855 85946.
Places are free but there will be a donations plate for freewill offerings towards expenses.

We advise early booking as places are limited. Bring own lunch please! Drinks will be provided throughout the day.
