Being healthy is more than just NOT being sick. Good health is life lived at your full potential, physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually.
The Bible calls this the “abundant life” and it is exactly what God wants for us. (John 10:10)
While we cannot control everything that causes disease or illness we can make choices that reduce our risks. An important part of Health Ministries is to promote the health and well-being of the whole person using a framework known as the NEWSTART programme that centres around the eight principles of health:
Nutrition Improving Your Nutrition
Exercise Exercising More
Water Drinking Plenty of Water
Sunshine Steping into the Sunshine
Temperance Being Balanced and Moderate
Air Breathing Deeper
Rest Getting Enough Rest
Trust Trusting in God
The Health Ministry team will be hosting health programmes throughout 2020 and beyond centered around these eight principles.
We also intend to feature workshops in mental health first aid, management of diabetes and hypertension with practical demonstrations and workshops. These workshops are very practical based, ideal for busy individuals as well as families which include simple healthy meal preparation and nutrition for the purpose of enhancing health and well being to help every person reach their full potential.
Please refer to our Events page to details of upcoming programmes.
