Stone United Church launches Spring Wellness Series

BRUCEDALE – Stone United Chuch is offering a Spring Wellness Series, with six guest speakers presenting at the Guelph/Eramosa church from February to May. 

Building on the success of the 2023 series, the topics chosen for this current series are in response to expressed community need for information that is practical, current, and locally based regarding diverse aspects of our physical, social, and emotional well being.

Presentations are offered both in person and virtually. 

The series kicked off on Feb. 10 with Victim Services Wellington executive director Liz Kent.

“With warmth and humour, Liz outlined the role that Victim Services plays in Guelph-Wellington,” church officials state in a press release. 

Victim Services Wellington offers offer emotional support in times of trauma, such as after the sudden death of a loved one, fire, victimization by criminal activity, and human trafficking.  

The services, provided  by 58 volunteers and four staff members, are available 24/7 through referral from police, fire and paramedics. 

Kent’s presentation can be found on Stone United Church’s YouTube channel. 

Church officials say they looks forward to welcoming five additional speakers between now and May 4. 

Speakers include Master Gardener Sean James who will share a presentation called Native Nifty Plants. 

James is a writer, teacher, and occasional guest on CBC’s The Gardening Show. 

“Whether you are a seasoned gardener or a novice, Sean will offer tips about creating and beautifying a garden with an emphasis on the use of native plants, often-overlooked species, and bio-diversity,” officials state.

Church doors and virtual link open at 9:45 am.
