1  What is Peaced Together?

Using a variety of themed craft projects, it encourages participants to reflect on their lives and set out on a personal journey from brokenness to hope.

The course consists of five craft projects completed over ten weeks. Each one helps the group explore topics such as beauty, thankfulness and positive choices.

2  Who is it for?

Peaced Together is suitable for women of any age. We have found that it particularly benefits women who find themselves isolated, depressed or victims of abuse.

The course has benefitted over 100 women so far and courses have been run in the London Boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Croydon and Redbridge.

We are keen to increase the number of locations offering Peaced Together and we offer training and materials for potential partners. Please contact us if you would like to find out more about running a course

3  Who developed Peaced Together?

Embroidery croppedPeaced Together was developed in 2012 by Heidi Singleton, a teacher living in East London. After a difficult time in her life, she found hope and restoration through the creative process and started writing Peaced Together. Read more about Heidi and the Peaced Together team

Peaced Together is part of Community Resources, an organisation established by LifeLine Church to grow creative solutions to local issues. It helps local people establish projects that will benefit their community.

4  Is the course available in other languages?

We are currently piloting a Creative English version of Peaced Together in partnership with FaithAction This will make the course accessible to women who are speakers of other languages.

We are also developing a Spanish translation of the course and ‘Peaced Together for children‘.

If you are interested in any of these developments, please contact us

5  After the course

While doing the course, many women discover a passion for creativity and want to continue developing their skills beyond the end of the ten weeks. Peaced Together Enterprise was established in 2014 to provide a place where they can do this while learning how to generate income from their craft. We sell unique, handcrafted products at craft fairs and through our online shop.
