The Living Room is an initiative set up by St Mary Magdalene Church in Torquay to create a relaxed, safe and friendly environment where people feel accepted valued and respected regardless of their beliefs, background or status. 

Open on Wednesdays and Fridays from 11-2pm, as well as providing bacon baps, coffee and good company, the volunteers listen to people’s problems and signpost them where appropriate to professional or other voluntary organisations.
