Social Groups

Loneliness is seen by many as one of the largest health concerns we face.  Being part of a social group can have a huge impact on you as a person, with some researchers calling them the “social cure”.

There are a number of social groups that take place at the Northampton Jesus Centre. Their aims are to simply make friends whilst enjoying a particular activity or theme. All groups are open to anyone and are run by volunteers.

Why not try one today?

Reminiscence Group

We all possess memories, we all have our own unique life history. Recalling the past is a means of owning it and hence preserving ourselves. It is a here and now process which holds the teller and the told in relationship with each other.

Faith Gibson (1998)
