Thursdays 1-3pm, Café 121
Wonderfully Made Creative Café is a weekly drop-in craft space where it’s OK not to be OK.
COVID19 update : It is with great sadness that we announce that, for the time being, Wonderfully Made will not be meeting on Thursdays. We are contacting community members individually with ideas about how to keep ourselves safe and keep in contact during this anxious time, and we will resume meeting as soon as it is safely possible to do so. Meantime, we remember the prayer of Paul: 'the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus'.
We all go through times when we don’t feel OK. At Wonderfully Made we don’t have to pretend: we accept and welcome each other as we are. We aim to see each other’s beauty, to respect each other’s struggles, and listen to each other’s stories or silence.
Wonderfully Made is a safe space where we can explore creativity, learn new skills, or simply ‘be’. Each week there is a craft/art activity which you are welcome to join in or not. While we make or do things together, we can talk and listen as we feel able. If you have a skill or hobby which you would like to share, please bring it 😊.
Wonderfully Made aims to be a supportive community. We are not providing a service, we are providing a place where friendships and self-support can flourish.
Our values are:
Welcome - everyone is welcome, without judgement.
Safety – we respect each other by not repeating each other’s stories without permission.* We can arrive and leave at any time.
Community – we make real, equal, supportive friendships with each other. We aim that no-one dominates, and no-one is left out.
Presence – we are present for one another, in the present moment, with quiet compassion.

You are welcome: whoever you are; however you are. Wonderfully Made is for people experiencing mental health problems, people who are lonely, carers, friends, family, ANYONE! You do not need to have a diagnosis or referral. We do not ask why you have come: we simply welcome you as you. Just come in!
Wonderfully Made is supported by Arbury Road Baptist Church and Christians in the North Cambridge area. It was founded by Christians who have experienced both the struggles of mental illness and the support of loving community. Prayer is available if you would like.
Each session is facilitated by trained volunteers, many of whom have experienced mental health problems.
We meet on Thursdays between 1pm and 3pm at Café 121, Milton Road, CB4 1XE
