The Harborough Christian Counselling Service is located at the Bower House in Coventry Road, and provides help, support and encouragement in the form of Christian counselling to the local people of Market Harborough and District at times of crises in their lives. Its aim is to empower and help people make their own decisions in appropriate ways to enable them to satisfactorily come through these crises. Whilst the workers will be Christians, the service is available to people of all faiths or none.
The Bower House was set up with the support of Churches Together in Harborough and although there are three representatives on the Governing Body, all member churches of CTH have members working in the service as governors, counsellors or support workers.
The Service also trains and equips Christians to be involved in Christian counselling and enables Christians to utilise the gifts that God has given them, together with their past training and experience.
It works alongside Churches in their caring ministries and with secular organisations that care for people.
Bower House Support Services are planning on running a Certificate in Counselling Skills course, from the end of January to mid July 2020. If you would be interested in this, please see the leaflet for further information: Certificate in Counselling Skills.
Friends of the Bower House - The Bower House is looking for “Friends” to enable the Counselling service to continue and develop its work. We are asking for a commitment to prayer, regular giving and a continued interest in the work being done. In return the Service will keep you informed of new developments, send you the Annual Report and invite you to at least one social event each year.
Please contact: The Friends Secretary at the above address.
