Video: Welcome Wednesdays, community space

This is a film about a church which opened it’s doors to the general public; using their space for the community and calling it Welcome Wednesdays. It has proved to be so successful that the flooring in the church hall is beginning to sag with the number of people. If that’s not a good way of measuring impact, we don’t know what is!!

Places of Welcome

We love that this isn’t a structured, formal service. It’s just all about socialising and laughter. They don’t force any activities on the people who come. People can choose how to take part. The only tricky thing is the first step to get involved and walk through the doors.

This community activity have been supported and funded by Social Movements for Health GM which is all about galvanising communities to connect people together. They share what they are learning about social movements in health across Greater Manchester. To find out more, check out their Facebook page.
