A church-run wellbeing space will open in Worle next week.

Renew 193 - Wellbeing Space will open at 193 High Street, Worle, on Thursday (April 28).

It will be formally opened at 1pm at an event welcoming the founder of Renew Wellbeing, Rev Ruth Rice.

Baptist Churches across Weston have come together to provide the space for people who are struggling with their mental wellbeing.

Renew 193 is part of a growing chain of wellbeing centres being set up across the United Kingdom by Renew Wellbeing.  

"We will be open Mondays to Thursdays and would welcome anyone, particularly those feeling low, anxious, lonely or isolated, to benefit from this quiet shared space where it’s okay not to be okay," said Revd Steve Christian, one of the projects joint founders. 

Renew Wellbeing helps churches open spaces of welcome and inclusion in partnership with mental health teams to improve mental and emotional wellbeing.
