Sometimes life gets a bit much and we just need a listening ear to help us through; asking for help can be really difficult. We are here to provide a supportive space and you do not need to have any connection with the Church to ask for a meeting, or a telephone conversation if that is easier. We can’t promise to make everything right but sometimes just telling someone how it is can be an enormous help. (Contact detail)
