Spiritual Healing – Drop in Sessions

Our most recent “First Time for Everything” event at Chesham House was a talk and demonstration of Spiritual Healing. Something, it turns out, which is often misunderstood or clouded in mystery.
The event went down so well with the attendees, including a couple of sceptics, that the lovely Penelope & Sue have kindly agreed to do a monthly Drop in Session at Chesham House.

The first one will be on:
Tuesday 1st August 
10.30 am until 1.00 pm

After this we hope to continue the sessions at the same times on the first Tuesday of every month.
The sessions are free of charge, however a small voluntary donation to cover costs is requested.

Coming soon to Chesham House

Really helpful drop in for information and advice
There will be 6 weekly sessions from 7th August to 18th September
(No session on 28th August – Summer Bank Holiday)

Our beautiful Vintage Tearoom

If you are a little shy about joining a club or taking part in an activity – don’t forget about our beautiful Vintage Tea Room. You can come along and enjoy a pot of tea and a slice of homemade cake to just get the feel of Chesham House and get to know some of our lovely volunteers. You can read a magazine, do a little of our puzzle, play a game or just watch the world go by, you choice is yours.

“You’ll always find a friend at Chesham House” – a quote from one of our ladies who has become a regular visitor

First Time for Everything

As part of our “First Time For Everything” campaign – Royal Voluntary Service, supported by Prudential, would like to introduce you to Spiritual Healing.

Spiritual Healing is a gentle, loving way to help bring relief and comfort to those experiencing physical or emotional difficulties. It is not an alternative to regular medical treatment but complementary to it and many find it can aid recovery.

Please come along to our free talk and demonstration at Chesham House Centre in South Street Lancing.

Look out for our next “First Time For Everything” event , there will be something new every month until April 2018.

Want to start a new group?

Please come along and join us

We are always interested in starting new groups at Chesham House, so please get in touch if there is something you would like to do. We will do our best to set it up for you if there is enough interest.

In the meantime have a look at our What’s On and don’t be shy about coming along to join in.

Wednesday lunch Club does have to be booked in advance and gets full up very quickly and Tuesday Crib group is almost full so I would advise coming along to the Thursday Crib if you can.

Soon we will be starting a new project offering a different activity every month so please watch this space.

Tim Loughton – MP for East Worthing & Shoreham

Visited our Lunch Club at Chesham House last Wednesday.
Tim stayed for lunch with us and saw the great work our volunteers do in providing vital transport, a hot meal and some great company every week. Chatting with some of our regular visitors Tim heard for himself the difference our volunteers make to the lives of older people in our community.
Tim has promised to spread the word about the work we do at Royal Voluntary Service so we can reach even more people and also recruit more volunteers to join our great team.
A big thank you to Tim for taking the time out of his busy schedule to meet everyone and a big well done to the team of volunteers for looking after him.
When “getting his hands dirty” helping to serve the teas and coffees after lunch it was good to see him engaging with our lovely members – although I believe he was advised to “not give up the day job” by one of our cheeky members.
