Bethany Mission Statement:

“Our aim is to provide a safe place where individuals can enjoy their time in a relaxing, supportive, non-judgemental environment.”

What does Bethany offer?

All of us at some time in our lives will experience loss or change, which can leave us feeling depressed, anxious, stressed or lonely.  Bethany offers a safe place where people over the age of 18 can find help and refuge from the pressures of life, and where they have the opportunity to be listened to, supported and nurtured in a loving, caring environment.

Bethany is run by volunteers and has tender loving care at the heart of all that it offers.

What happens at meetings?

All our sessions offer:

– a warm, friendly welcome with tea, coffee and biscuits, which remain available throughout your time with us,

– the opportunity to chat with others, catch-up with old friends and make new ones,

– a range of creative and therapeutic activities that you can choose to take part in,

– a ‘cosy’ area where you can sit quietly and enjoy the provided magazines, puzzle books etc. or simply     think your own thoughts.
