Recovery Church

Recovery Church provides a safe place to belong that encourages a sense of community spirit where open, transparent and honest sharing takes place as we explore the teachings of God and spirituality. 

The Recovery Church community shares leadership and participation through mutual support from your peers within our meetings. 

Recovery Church expects everyone to come with an open mind in the belief that we will learn from each other; doubts and questions are welcomed.

Recovery Church recognises that everybody comes with a valid experience of spirituality.

Everyone is welcome so long as you are substance-free on the day.
