If both areas are full, x exit the parking area onto Manchester Rd and use available street parking. font face= "Verdana">
While our meetings are held at a church property, there is no religious affiliation with our organization. 

Each meeting has a topic, but discussions sometimes lead to other grief related areas. If you want to attend but don't think the topic is relevant for you, please come anyway.

We are here for YOU and will listen to whatever you need to share.
