From the Intentional Health team
Would you like to help your church and community embrace Jesus' words in John 10:10?

'I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.'

If you would like to explore this further then Intentional Health may be for you and your church.
Intentional Health is a 10 session programme for people of all faiths and none, based on biblical
principles and government guidelines for health living, to help people live life to the full.

By partnering with Intentional Health your church will be part of this amazing opportunity that sees
lives saved, and the health and well being of your local community improved and changed for good.

Each session lasts for 2 hours and is delivered by trained coaches from your church. The topics include:-

What is health and well being?
Habits and triggers
Communication and boundaries
A balanced diet
Goals and rewards
Physical activity
Thoughts and feelings
Niky Dix, founded Intentional Health 5 years ago, and many programmes have been successfully run in
the south of England since; with some GP groups now considering referring patients to Intentional
Health as part of their social prescribing.

We have just completed our first course at Hazel Grove Baptist Church (HGBC), which we have found both
humbling and extremely encouraging. Our second course is due to start in January 2020. Some of the
comments from course members include:-

— I hadn't expected the support of the group to be so beneficial
— I now realise that small changes can really make a difference
— I really didn't expect to lose weight but I have

HGBC is currently the most northern church partnering with Intentional Health,
and Niky and the HGBC Intentional Health team believe we are being called to expand the reach
of Intentional Health in the North.

To this end we are holding a 'taster session' to which we would like to invite you and/or a
representative from your church.
