Churches are Saving lives by…
Preventing lifestyle diseases as people are empowered to live well and make lasting healthier lifestyle choices & habits
Helping people who are suffering needlessly from lifestyle related diseases and conditions to live life well
Exploring spiritual health from a Christian perspective, in groups that are suitable for people of all faiths and none
Enabling health professionals to signpost people in communities to programmes, freeing up NHS precious resources to clinically do what only they can!
Do you want to save lives in your Local community?
Are you looking for opportunities to connect with people in a meaningful and relevant way, that serves them at their point of need?
Good health and wellbeing affects everybody and underpins everything we do.
Intentional Health equips missional churches to inspire healthy communities and save lives.
We partner with local churches, offering them a way to serve their communities and build lasting relationships with people of all faiths and none, who want to improve their health and wellbeing and may have no other connection with your local church.
If you want to save lives because you believe that #EveryBodyMatters we’d love to hear from you.
What is Intentional Health™?
Intentional Health™ is an award winning and approved 10 week Cinnamon Network Programme delivered trained by church volunteers in community groups.
The resources are designed to be helpful for discipleship, mission and outreach.
The interactive powerpoint materials, activities and resources means volunteers are well equipped to come alongside people in your church and community whilst exploring health and wellbeing in a fun, whole person (mind, body and spirit) and transformational context.
How it works
We train between 2 and 4 volunteers from a church (or group of churches together) to become 'Intentional Health Coaches'.
The 3 day training programme and resources means that volunteers don’t need to be health experts, they only need servant hearts and be willing to come alongside people in community through facilitating a group session.
Why the church?
“Church isn’t about getting bums on seats on a Sunday morning, it’s about meeting people regardless of their background or beliefs and walking alongside them until they believe that they are both loved and loveable. Intentional Health is a way that the love of God can be demonstrated by living the basic command to love one another.”
“I’ve known Niky for many years and am mentoring her as she builds and grows Intentional Health. Her passion and heart for the lives that are changed through the work is inspiring.”
Dr John Kirkby CBE, Founder, Christians Against Poverty
