Restoring Hope And Wellbeing

17–19 February 2023 (Fri–Sun)

Stephen Smith

The last few years have been tough on those who care for others. While the UK was locked down, NHS staff, teachers, carers and others kept going. As we care, we can get ‘chipped’ – but God’s grace mends and holds us together in our brokenness when we submit to His love. Held in the tranquil setting of The Greenhouse, this weekend is an opportunity to look honestly at ourselves and be ourselves in a safe environment and in God’s loving presence. We’ll look at issues such as resilience and healthy relationships, as well as the difficult emotions encountered while caring for others such as loss, guilt, anger, shame, depression, and anxiety. Course material is drawn from ‘Kintsugi Hope Wellbeing’ – the word Kintsugi refers to the Japanese art of repairing broken porcelain with golden resin, making it more precious than the original. ‘He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.’ Find out more about Stephen on our website, or for more information about Kintsugi Hope visit
