The Ridgeway Benefice hosts their first support group for new parents of babies under 12 months

Working with the Methodist Church, Ridgeway Benefice are hosting their first baby group for new parents, providing a place for support, companionship and an opportunity to weigh the baby.

Speaking about the new group, Revd Andrea Colbrook, curate, said,

“We know that COVID has been really tough on everyone, but we have been hearing more and more how hard it has been for new parents as they struggle with feelings of loneliness and isolation. This group will offer a safe space for support, a hot drink and a piece (or two!) of cake, allowing parents to chat with each other about the highs and lows of new parenthood. The fact that we only announced the ability to sign up on Wednesday and we already have six families taking part shows just how needed it is.”

The group will meet every Monday morning at the Methodist Church Centre in Childrey at 10.30 and all are welcome.
