The weekend service in Newham has been running for 7 years and is a vibrant and diverse service. Run by excellent service Managers, Linda ChanEugene Ebrill and Raman Nijhawan, it is the ideal place to find a little extra support at the weekend if life gets difficult.

It is blessed to have a wonderful little garden which is the ideal place to relax with a cup of coffee.

Staffed by a committed team of friendly and skilled volunteers, there is plenty of easy conversation, and with excellent kitchen facilities and a giant dining table, a place where we enjoy community meals together.

There are dedicated health and wellbeing facilitators that come weekly to run mindfulness, yoga and tai chi groups. There are also crafting and free art groups, a bi-weekly nail bar, table tennis, an XBOX and a Film club to keep everyone active and engaged.
