Movement for Recovery London is bringing together local churches, church unity groups, charities and denominations for the common good. From the nine missions identified by the GLA, we will focus initially on the mission responding to Mental Health and Wellbeing. The Christian community already provides pastoral support to many in the city and has a large footprint in local communities, delivering, for example, hundreds of toddler groups, significant elderly care services and food banks across the city.
Working alongside Thrive London and drawing upon other charities, such as Kintsugi Hope, Movement for Recovery London looks to mobilise hundreds of churches and 1000s of ordinary Christian to make an impact on the mental health and wellbeing of the capital.
‘Communities across the land have experienced enormous trauma over these past two years. Churches too. Movement for Recovery aims to stimulate exactly that: recovery from trauma. Their focus on mental health and wellbeing – encouraging churches to be a place where that is located – is to be welcomed’
Rev. Phil Barnard, Regional Team Leader, London Baptists
