Our mission is to help local people, feel well & connected through activities. This is achieved by inspiring local people to be active participants who want to make a difference through volunteering. The project builds local social capital as well as creating sustainable activities for local people through their involvement as to what matters to them.

Creative and Art Activities: These include activities that encourage people to come together through a shared interest and make things. Growing these activities will encourage local people to get involved and identify other activities based around creating and learning. Create an entrepreneurial spirit of making and selling items will encourage ongoing sustainability as well as active participation and ownership. Each week we have a sewing group and a craft group.

Health and Wellbeing Activities will focus on encouraging ageing healthily. Creating a relationship with Health trainers’ offering gentle exercise sessions will offer the community a chance to stay well. Activities that help people increase their chance of living well. Each week we have a Tai Chi Session.

Creating Friendships Activities: These activities are sessions where informal structures enable people to connect and enjoy conversation that develops friendship. Weekly Coffee and Catch Up sessions and one off events including Tea Dances offer a chance to catch up and create friendships.
Befriending Activities: These activities will utilise the skills of ‘St Peters Church Community Activities’ volunteers. Their role is to provide face to face sessions or telephone contact with older vulnerable persons isolated to remain connected or to encourage participation in existing activities.
