The tastelife course is free, though we do ask for a £5 donation per person per session (£40) to cover costs.

Tastelife is about just that: tasting life.
Gateway Community Church is pleased to offer the TasteLife course, run by people who've faced battles themselves. Tastelife believes in breaking free from eating disorders and rediscovering life in all its fullness.
Tastelife offers hope for sufferers and help for their supporters through the tastelife eight-session community course.
The course is for anyone who believes they have an eating disorder because issues around eating have taken over their life. You don’t have to have an ‘official’ diagnosis to come. It doesn’t matter what sort of eating disorder you have either – this course is for you.
It is also open to parents, siblings, friends and carers of sufferers.
The aim of the course is to give you a toolkit of resources that you can use to start walking out of eating issues and back into enjoying life again, baby step by baby step. The tastelife course is not a cure or therapy, but it is a safe place where we can learn and grow together. Full recovery from eating disorders is possible! We have seen it and work with people who are either fully recovered or well on their way.
We believe in new beginnings and starting where you are. We know it isn’t all about food. There is a way out, and the tastelife course helps you to look forward to a time when eating, or not eating, is no longer holding you in its grip. The intention is that you can take hold of life in all its fulness, tasting food and enjoying it without fear, wherever you are and whoever you are with.
