3rd Space

3rd Space @ the cross

Open every Friday 1pm - 6pm
and every Wednesday 11am - 4pm

The 3rd Space Project is building community in the heart of Chester alongside the well established cafe in St Peter's. We offer a listening ear, an option to receive simple prayer, signposting to other voluntary groups and therapeutic activities to engage inclusively with people from the local community who are unoccupied during daytime hours.

Our weekly activities are on Wednesdays & Fridays and include:-

  • a therapeutic Art workshop 'Art for Wellbeing',
  • therapeutic courses:- 'Creative Writing for Wellbeing' and 'Therapeutic Learning in Arts & Crafts,
  • a Prayer group,
  • Harmony Singing (Taize) workshops (seasonal),
  • a Reading club,
  • 'Confidence coaching' group sessions,
  • 'WellBeing drop-in' 1-to-1 sessions,
  • & a 'Bitesize bible' discussion group for those who specifically want to look at questions about God and our Christian faith.
  • All our activities are inclusive of those of any faith or no-faith but we only promote the Christian faith. Within all our work we also promote the five ways to good mental health wellbeing, which are:-be open to the Spirit, relationships, keep learning, be active & giving back.

Regular attendees are eventually encouraged to volunteer in the cafe or help with the workshops as part of their giving back into the community.
