Practical help and support groups

Firm Roots Cancer Support and Prayer Group meets monthly on the first Wednesday morning of the month. These meetings are held 10.30am to 12.00pm at Sutton Coldfield Baptist Church. We are a small, friendly group of around 10 members. Some are going through treatment; some have finished, and some are carers. All have some experience of the cancer journey and can understand the complexity of cancer and share experiences. The group is open to anyone experiencing cancer whether personally, as a carer or family member, or as a health professional. People from all different denominations attend and we also welcome people who do not attend church or are unsure about faith, but who would like to receive prayer and encouragement as they go through cancer. We start with refreshments and a chance to chat together. It’s an opportunity to discover you are not alone, and that it’s a safe place to share your feelings and fears with people who understand. It is by no means a morbid morning: at times we laugh and cry together. After coffee we share some words of encouragement from the Bible and maybe listen to some music. We then pray for people who have contacted us, for their families, and also for each other. There is no expectation for everyone to join in prayer, and it’s all completely confidential. A group may not be for everyone, so we also offer one-to-one support or prayer if you let us know. Of course there is no charge, and you won’t be asked to sign up or join anything. Most people find they start to make friends with others who understand the challenges and concerns they share. But there is also a sense of hope for the journey you face. As Christians, we believe that God loves and cares for each of us individually.
