Forthcoming event at Romsey Abbey

21 January 2013

UNDER THE TITLE 'God is depressed! Who on earth can shine some hope on the situation?' Romsey Abbey has used a tongue in cheek health and safety style flyer to advertise its Mental Health Awareness Weekend in February.

On Saturday 9 February the Abbey will play host to a compelling drama presentation which raises some issues about mental health, self-esteem and God's perception of us. It will be given by Revd Eva McIntyre, a member of the Church of England's Mental Health team and Vicar in Stourport.

Eva will also be staying and preaching at our service on Sunday 10 February when there will be various people from Triangulate and other information groups who will be on hand to talk, signpost and share information.

The main event takes place on Saturday 9 February at 7.30pm (drinks from 7pm). Admission is free, with a retiring collection.
