Christian responses to 21st Century demographics


As life expectancy increases, there are new challenges for us as Christians. Growing Old Grace-fully seeks to provide opportunities to explore these in a safe and supportive environment


How should we behave towards people with dementia when they come to join in church services? This is a difficult area for many people and needs sensitive treatment.


As we live longer and grow older we can find that our life is constricted in various ways. How do we approach this positively? How do we prepare to face our own death?

As part of our aim to help parishes be more 'Later Life-Friendly', we are offering a number of short sessions on Becoming a Dementia-Friendly Parish. To understand how your parish can work towards becoming dementia-friendly, or to discuss other ways of valuing and supporting people in later life, please get in touch.

Bradford District Dementia Action Alliance quarterly meeting @ Cottingley Cornerstone Centre
Jan 17 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Celebrating the work of the Dementia Action Alliance, and the wider Dementia Friendly Communities project, there will also be an Awards Ceremony for those organisations who have joined the DAA and not yet received their recognition.

Bradford District Dementia Action Alliance is a group of organisations from the public, business and community sectors who are working to make their organisations more accessible and supportive to people with dementia. The emphasis is that small changes can make a big difference to those living with dementia.

If you are not yet involved in the DAA and would like to know more about how your organisation can become a member, please come along and find out what you need to do. They will be happy to help.

It should be an informative and useful meeting with time for coffee and networking too.

Please feel free to pass this on to local colleagues.
