RESTORE helps create opportunities for people while caring for the world. We do this by building a community of people based around our shops and projects. By recycling pre-owned items for sale through our shops we generate funds to provide opportunities for people in our community who need help most.
In the restore community we seek to:
Follow daily: We care about the community, so around our shops we provide opportunities to make friends, learn and share skills, volunteer, support one another and share life.
Tread gently: We care about the environment, so we recycle, reuse, repair and repurpose, make, create and grow things.
Care Deeply: We care about people, so we provide opportunities for those who need help most, building mutual relationships characterised by generosity, care and conversation.
Speak boldly: We care about the whole person, so we create spaces where people can express curiosity, explore life and faith. We seek to be a community which listens to everyone.
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 four shops in Carlisle and one in Penrith. These are supported by our warehouse at Shaddongate, 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, and regular space for reflection and prayer.IF YOU THINK YOU CAN HELP, CONTACT US
