Open Hands

A group in Guildford for adults with learning disabilities, carers & friends.

Meet Paula, the main contact and host for our group. She says:

“Open Hands is a friendly group that meets regularly for informal, accessible worship. It’s suitable for anyone but especially for adults with learning disabilities, other disabilities and/or mental health difficulties. Our meetings start with a social get together over tea, followed by a Bible based service with songs and prayer. We encourage everyone to join in as much as suits them and we are well supported by an experienced team of helpers”

Join us for our next meeting – see the dates below. Or scroll further down for pictures.
