Christian responses to 21st Century demographics

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

BEING A DEMENTIA-FRIENDLY CHURCH

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.

FACING THE LOSSES OF LATER LIFE

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?

We are delighted that our Guide for parishes on learning from and caring for older people will be published in May. This Guide is free and contains practical ideas and case studies to support church communities in valuing older people and benefiting from their gifts.
