Bromsgrove church offers people 'break from Brexit' respite space

AS THE Brexit deadline approaches, churches across Bromsgrove are offering people the chance to seek respite from all the worries and anxieties of Britain leaving the EU.

The space is available at St John’s Church in Bromsgrove at 1pm each lunchtime where a ‘listener’ will be on hand to sit with residents, listen to their concerns and offer them to God.

Rev David Ford, Team Rector of Bromsgrove, said: “Churches have always offered their local communities safe space – or sanctuary – in which to simply ‘be’, pray or talk about what is uppermost in their minds.

“Whatever your own views on Brexit, this is a difficult time of uncertainty.

“We hope by fulfilling the churches traditional role of offering sanctuary, a safe space, our communities can find the peace and the courage we need for whatever lies ahead.”

It starts today (Thursday), the day of the European Council meeting and will happen every day until at least November 1.
