This support group was created at the Church weekend away at Cefyn Lea in May 2008. Five single mums met several times over coffee and in their chalets and found they had many things in common in raising children largely on their own after a relationship breakdown. We decided to create a formal group and call it “Transform” after the theme of the weekend: “Transformed By His Love” because we felt that we wanted God to ‘Transform‘ our shattered lives.


Our group is open to anyone who finds themselves alone after a long term relationship breakdown. They may or may not be parents, may be of any age or gender and may not have been married. Our aim is to provide friendship, support and encouragement for people at a time when they may feel quite vulnerable.


We meet regularly at The Bank on the first Sunday of each month after the 11.00am service with our children and bring our own lunch. In between these meetings, we have various evening and weekend social events. During the summer months, our Sunday meetings are in Holmleigh gardens (weather permitting!)
