Your Space is run by a small team of passionate staff and volunteers. Our volunteers are our core foundation that enable us to be the community that we are, and we couldn’t operate without them.

The Your Space vision was born in early 2023, with the core team forming over the next few months. Accessibility, a warm welcome, and both flexibility and adaptability in meeting the needs of our community have remained at the forefront of our team planning since then. It is a core part of our vision that all can find a place where they belong, and we regularly review the ways that we operate to ensure that we are consistently meeting the needs of our community.

Our team is passionate about wellbeing, tackling loneliness, and providing a space where all can explore life questions and faith. We work hard to ensure that our community is open and welcoming, where all are free to engage with us in the ways that work best for them. Two of our team members live with a chronic health condition and understand first hand the challenges that this brings on a daily basis.

Our team decide on a theme for each month, each designed to support your wellbeing. There is an overlap between wellness and spirituality, therefore our sessions tend to touch on both of these themes.

Our core team have a Christian faith and our community is supported by the Methodist Church, but we operate to ensure that our community is open to those of all faiths or none. We understand that it can be hard to find a space in today’s society to talk openly about faith, spirituality and life, without the pressure or pre-conceived ideas that so often accompany it. We work to fill that gap and provide a place where you can ask those questions and explore with others, without the pressure.

The work of Your Space is made stronger through our community and offers of support from our extended network, whether that is through connecting with us on social media, sharing our posts, or offering to lead one of our community sessions!

We are always open to expanding our team of volunteers. If you have skills that would contribute to the future of Your Space, either on a one-off or regular basis, please get in touch, asking to speak to the Your Space Team Lead, Tori Allen.
