Lifting the lid

Six Bible Studies for exploring God’s Heart for Mental Health

You are invited to a six-week Bible study course that focuses on our faith and mental health. Every week we’ll be learning about specific mental health diagnoses – causes, treatments, and how churches can help. It’s important that church is a place where we

can talk openly about mental health – this course will help us all to do this.

The 6 sessions will be on Zoom each Thursday at 7.00pm commencing on

This has now concluded but do contact The Revd Vivienne for reflection materials or if you'd be interested in this running again.

People can attend some or all of the sessions.

Please contact The Revd Vivienne Starkie on [email protected] if you would like to attend.
