Christian Listeners

Time to Listen

Morecambe Parish Church is launching a listening service for the church and community.

Why Listening?

We live in a society that can be very stressful. Perhaps a relationship has broken down or you have been bereaved. Sometimes the stress of hard working lives has become unmanageable. Many of us experience difficulties and anxieties, which we feel we cannot sort out on our own.

‘Time to Listen’ provides a safe place for someone to come as they are and tell their story.

What is it For?

Whatever the problem, talking with someone trained to listen sensitively and sympathetically, can help to understand it. Listeners will not judge you in any way or give advice but will be alongside you as you explore your situation.

Who are the Listeners?

Our team of Listeners have undergone training by Acorn Christian Trust and are recognised as Acorn Christian Listeners. They are all CRB checked, bound by confidentiality and given regular supervision.

“Listening is the highest form of hospitality… not to change people, but offering them space where change can take place.” Henri Nouwen
