drop-ins, counselling, choir and events

DROP-INS

WE HAVE NEEDED TO ALTER THE WAY WE RUN OUR DROP-INS.

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we are currently running virtual drop-ins.

These take place online and require an internet connection in order to access these group sessions.

The virtual drop-ins take place on:

Tuesdays & Fridays

10:30am to 11:30am

Please contact us if you would like to join our online drop-ins.

Comments from members of Space who have attended our regular drop-ins:

  • It provides me with a lot of company
  • A place to go when you are feeling alone
  • I come to all 3 weekly drop-ins (at St Mary’s Church). They give rhythm and structure to my week. I feel happier when I leave
  • Space helps me to get rid of my boredom. It has given me the confidence to become a befriender for Mind and do other volunteer jobs

COUNSELLING

WE ARE CURRENTLY OFFERING COUNSELLING VIA TELEPHONE OR VIDEO CALL ONLY.

  • Counselling is an opportunity to work one to one on a weekly basis on life issues that make our daily journey difficult.
  • It’s often difficult talking to friends or family about the things that trouble us most. A counsellor can empower you to overcome your difficulties and give you space to express yourself.
  • Counselling can also be a place to accept the things we cannot change.
  • Our counsellors are all fully qualified or well into their training. All counsellors are members of BACP and receive supervision from qualified supervisors.
Comments from individuals who have received help from the counselling service:
  • Space is an excellent service, very valuable and much needed. It helped to have someone caring to talk to. I’m grateful for a lot of support
  • It feels like an air-pocket, a light-house, an oasis. It’s the only space where i feel being loved unconditionally, where my mind and soul are nourished, where i get to know my own humility and others. It is my most effective ‘anti-depressant’ without the harmful side effects. Life without Space? It would feel like being ‘homeless’
  • Counselling is a time to release how you feel if you don’t have someone else to talk to

CHOIR

THE CHOIR IS ON HOLD AT PRESENT, BUT WE ARE LOOKING AT OPTIONS FOR RUNNING AN ONLINE CHOIR.

The Space choir started in 2017. We call ourselves ‘Voices in Harmony’. We meet weekly on Tuesdays during term time at 7.30pm, at Church of Good Shepherd, Southcourt. No previous experience of singing required and no auditions.

Research shows singing improves health and happiness. It also helps create community, increases confidence and is all round good fun.

EVENTS

We hold a variety of fundraisers throughout the year. You can find regular updates on this site, see our calendar or our Facebook page.

Please contact us if you can help raise funds.

OUR FUNDRAISERS AND EVENTS ARE CURRENTLY ON HOLD, BUT WE ARE BUSIER THAN EVER.

SHORT WALK GROUP

WE WILL RESTART OUR WALKING GROUP WHEN APPROPRIATE.

Every Monday morning we take a short walk around Aylesbury. The walk lasts approximately 2 hours, including a refreshment break.

The group is open to anyone who would like to join us for a leisurely stroll.

Please note that this activity is not currently taking place.
