Sacred Trinity is going to offically become a “Place of Welcome” on Tuesday lunchtimes from 5th April. Places of Welcome is a national scheme. You can find out more about it here: https://www.placesofwelcome.org.uk/
Our plan is to be open as a place of welcome every Tuesday 12-2. We will serve Tea and Coffee and biscuits for free and will offer a warm welcome to all. We will run in a way that holds to the five guiding principles of Places of Welcome:
Place: A hospitable and accessible building, open at the same time every week.
People: Open to everyone regardless of their circumstances or situation, and staffed by volunteers, a group of people who are committed to making it happen.
Presence: A place where people actively listen to one another.
Provision: Free refreshments (at least a cup of tea and a biscuit) are on offer along with basic local information.
Participation: Recognition that every person coming to a Place of Welcome will bring talents, experiences and skills that they might be willing to share locally.
We’ll be producing publicity very soon and are currently recruiting volunteers. Get in touch if you’d like to get involved.
