At the heart of Restore we are helping to build communities and learning to share life together. We have a weekly rhythm of working in the shops, playing, making things, growing things, daily prayer, sharing meals. We seek to follow the example and way of Jesus through:
Hospitality: Building friendships of mutuality, kindness and dignity.
Simplicity: Learning how to share economic resources and to be community sufficient.
Peace: Challenging violence of every kind, pursuing peace and committing to conflict resolution.
Resistance: Seeking to challenge unjust structures of society, while embodying hopeful alternatives.
Prayer: Developing life-giving spiritual practices.
We Restore. we rekindle spirits within our society.
We are particularly looking to build community with those who don’t normally attend traditional Church. There are lots of us who struggle to find a space where we belong so we seek to include and empower those who may struggle to find welcome elsewhere.
We currently run 3 shops in Carlisle and one in Penrith. These are supported by a Warehouse close to the centre of Carlisle. Each shop offers a wide range of pre-owned goods AND seeks to create a community around it where people can feel welcomed, valued and supported. There are opportunities to discover what it means to be valued and to regain a sense of belief in ourselves and in God. These opportunities include Men in Sheds, an Allotment, community meals, and regular space for reflection and prayer.IF YOU THINK YOU CAN HELP, CONTACT US
