Upton Vale Baptist Church has a group dedicated to caring for those within the church and with links to the church, who have emotional and mental wellbeing issues. This “Fresh Hope Group” offers monthly support meetings every third Wednesday which are open to anyone. There we share people’s stories and testimonies and offer confidential space in small groups in which to build one another up with prayer. We also pray for people to be healed after the meeting by request. This group is affiliated to the Fresh Hope group based in the USA. Their website is www.freshhope.us. It forms part of the work of the pastoral care group and has facilities to visit or meet with people individually at the request of and in support of the Pastors and Elders. It includes professional doctors and nurses with experience in this area of ministry.
