South East – Cheam

Our course in Cheam is known as New Beginnings but used the Restored Lives materials. It is a divorce and separation support group course aiming for restored lives.

New Beginnings is for everyone who has suffered a broken relationship. The aim of the course is to help people come to terms with the past and make a fresh start in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. People come along who are at every stage, from not having made the split to having been separated many years but still working on some issues. Some people have been married and some not.

What’s involved?
We always start with a meal at 7:30pm for those who can make it and then hear a talk and have a small group discussion, though you don’t have to say anything if you don’t want to. The course is free and is based on Christian principles but is not religious. It is open to everyone and lasts ten weeks.

Although we deal with difficult issues we find that during the evening there is a lot of laughter and people have a good time. We also have a variety of well attended and fun social events such as meals together, cinema trips etc.

Be brave
Many people find it hard to come to the first evening but after that they look forward to it and by the end of the course they have made really good friends.

Many of the people from the previous courses have come back to take the course again and to be a helper.

Facing the effects of separation and divorce
