Social Event at Hebburn Independent Methodist Church

Event for those in recovery and members of the church

Social Event at Hebburn Independent Methodist Church
Following the event that was held at Hebburn Independent Methodist Church at Christmas our service users (from the partnership) were invited back for a social event with parishioners, this included a quiz, buffet and time to socialise and to get to know each other as the church are really keen to support the service users. Being invited back has shown the service users they are accepted in the community and it enables them to integrate back into the community. Michelle Scott our Recovery Champion knows only too well how important this is.

27 service users, 15 members of the church and 3 staff attended the event. Michelle said “The night couldn’t have gone better, everyone chipped in for the buffet and the quiz was organised by Elizabeth at the church”. One of the service users said “he hadn’t laughed in 3 years and he feels like his old self again” – priceless!
