In a further expansion of the charity's work, and in partnership with the Reverb Church (Methodist), a quiet space/ drop-in centre has been created in a previously burnt-out roofless building behind the charity shop in Merkinch. The work itself, instigated by the director of the charity Richard Burkitt and the Methodist Pioneer Minister Dave Saunders, has been carried out by volunteers and funded for the most part by donations of materials and cash.
It is a space within Merkinch for escape from what can often feel like an unfriendly world. It is a place to be still, to be safe and to be listened to.
Dave Saunders is running a daily 'afternoon bell' which is a moment to be still/pray/meditate for 20 mins in the middle of the day at 12.30pm from Monday to Friday.
Reverb Church in partnership with For The Right Reasons hold regular community events in the chapel garden that encourage life, hope and laughter. There are also AA and NA (Narcotics Anonymous) Meetings.
There are also plenty of opportunities for volunteering in the garden.
