Renew Wellbeing is a registered charity helping churches open spaces of welcome and inclusion in partnership with mental health teams to improve mental and emotional wellbeing.

Renew Wellbeing

What is a Renew Space?

Renew spaces are simple cafe style spaces run by local churches where hobbies and activities are shared or co-produced. Each cafe space is attached to a quiet room or prayer space where inner habits of wellbeing are shared. Each church partners with a mental health professional from the local council or other suitable organisation to ensure good inclusive practices for safe spaces where it's OK not to be OK can be sustained.  

A pilot scheme is underway for dioceses to set up Renew Wellbeing spaces in churches. This is an exciting initiative allowing parishes to expand their offering to their local community, helping to address isolation, low mood and loneliness through a simple, tried-and-tested concept.

Full training and support is provided and the project is centrally funded.
