Encompass means to Surround, Hold and Include.
We aim to surround the women we work with at whatever stage of life they are at, and wherever they are along their faith journey.
We aim to hold:
Faith, when they have none.
Hope, when they have none.
Vision for their future, when they have none.
The Azalea Drop-In is open every Monday and Friday night and Wednesday afternoon.
The Drop-In offers a welcoming, homely environment where women have the chance to step away from the pressures and dangers they regularly experience and find a place of rest. It is well stocked with food, basic supplies and there are regular arts and crafts sessions run by our volunteer team. We run a weekly Alpha group that starts with a home-cooked meal followed by worship and discussion.
In 2018, 60 women regularly accessed Azalea's Drop-in.
