Faith in Later Life exists to inspire and equip Christians to reach, serve and empower older people in every community, through the local Church

Written for Faith in Later Life by Professor Keith Brown and Karen Grimshaw, and endorsed by the All Party Parliamentary Group on Longevity, this guidance resource expertly sets the context of loneliness amongst older people (in the UK) as well as the work that Christian organisations are involved in in this area, and shares helpful ideas and tools to enable groups and individuals in engaging with loneliness in a variety of contexts.

Church communities and Christian organisations have been and remain at the forefront of civil society efforts to raise awareness of the debilitating impact of loneliness and well as creating communities and relationships that go some way to tackling loneliness, and this guidance shares information about a variety of Christian organisations involved with addressing loneliness – as well as reminding us of the inherent value of older people.

This guidance is free to download.

Older people are part of the extended all-age family of the church! Many older people are key volunteers in children and youth ministry, supporting, praying, and leading. Our friends at the NATIONAL ESTATE CHURCHES NETWORK are holding a conference on 29 September, 10am - 2.30pm. Here are the details:

“This year we bring 'Your Time'. We will be exploring mission and ministry with the children and young people of our estates. The Good Childhood Report released two weeks ago highlights the continuing trend of declining happiness amongst the young. As those in the heart of the community we can make a difference. Join us to find out more about how. Free Tickets available here: www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/necn-your-time-children-youth-and-families-conference-tickets-162406023789

We loved this comment from Helen at our conference on Saturday in the online chat:

"As I approached retirement from work I had a chat with my church leader. His comment is worth sharing: Christians don't retire, we keep going, waiting for the final promotion!”
