The Life Recovery project at Crisis Centre Ministries works with those in recovery from addiction (and also mental health issues) by facilitating community groups and activities for mutual support, well-being and learning, in a non-judgemental and life-affirming environment. We run the LIFE Course, a modular programme, and enable churches to host Life Recovery Groups (LRG) alongside which we provide 1-2-1 listening and practical support.
We have an immediate need for two staff members whose roles will provide maternity cover.
  1. Life Recovery Deputy Manager – LIFE.
