 HISTORY OF CELEBRATE RECOVERY

Celebrate recovery was launched in USA in 1991 by pastor John Baker who had given his life to the Lord but could not find a safe place to share the struggles he had with alcohol. John knew that he needed to get free from his struggles with alcohol and a 12 step programme could help him.  God gave him a vision to create a safe place not only for those struggling with addiction but a safe place for anyone struggling with co-dependency, eating disorders, current or past abuse issues,   anger and many more!  In other words, anyone struggling with.

HURTS,HANG-UPS OR HABITS

This is what people have said about Celebrate Recovery

 “Celebrate Recovery has helped me face up to my insecurities and      unhealthy behaviours with the support of my small group, sponsor and the Christian teaching. The truth has set me free!”

 

“Following a life of alcoholism, drug addiction, depression and        homelessness I was haunted with guilt, shame, fear and self-hatred. Through  Celebrate Recovery and the supportive relationships made, I addressed these issues and others that God has revealed to me, there has been much Grace, Forgiveness and Healing”.

 

“I was in debt, had resigned from my job and was struggling with secret addictions. I had distanced myself from family and friends and although on the surface I seemed okay I was quietly stressed and desperate.  The harder I tried to change things the worse they got.  Celebrate Recovery helped me to be more honest with others and with myself and to accept that my life was a mess.  Gradually I came out of the spiral and rebuilt my life.  At the end of the programme I am happier and healthier and have learnt lessons that will help me continue to grow in my recovery.”

Where confidentiality is non-negotiable.
A place to learn.
A place to grow and become strong again.

A place for selfish control.
A place for secrets.
A place to rescue or be rescued by others.
A place for perfection.
A place to judge others.
