Coronavirus (Covid-19) has affected all our lives.
Things are changing fast. We have faced loss, anxiety and disruption.
While we are still recovering, many of us continue to worry about what it means for ourselves and for our loved ones.
Which is why, this year, the Bishop of Derby’s Harvest Appeal, will focus on supporting the wellbeing of people in Derbyshire.
‘Peace of Mind’: supporting wellbeing in Derbyshire’ will be officially launched on Sunday, 6th September.
This autumn a variety of free online events with a mental health and wellbeing focus, from Christian partners, will be available for everyone in the diocese.
Events include an online reading group, examples of community sport and activity projects, ‘Managing anxiety and trauma using Christian principles’ and ‘Poetry for Health’ amongst others.
The workshops are free and will be held via Zoom.
To book your place please visit the Learning in Faith pages of the diocesan website.
Alongside the events programme we have challenged ourselves to raise £15,000 to support Derbyshire Mind’s wellbeing programme ‘Enjoying Derbyshire’.
Enjoying Derbyshire is a project that offers a diverse menu of activities and workshops aimed at improving mental wellbeing.
More resources and events will be available on the diocesan website and our social media channels throughout the autumn.
