“There is a great need for information that is based on solid Bible teaching and is proven in practice.  I applaud Faith in Later Life for being prepared to commission work of this kind where there are gaps, and to make what already exists more accessible.”

Roger Hitchings

Pastor and Conference Speaker

“A key element of PFS strategy is to be ready to support Churches and Christians in their caring, pastoral support and outreach work with older people in the community. We are therefore delighted to support Faith in Later Life as it seeks to inspire and equip people and churches in seniors’ ministry.”

Stephen Hammersley

Chief Executive, Pilgrims' Friend Society

“Older people are a wonderful asset.  I pray that Faith in Later Life will help many older people discover and live out their calling and that churches will find new opportunities to engage with them.”  

Elaine Cobb

Director of Older People's Services, The Salvation Army

“Much work with older people happens in the community on the doorsteps of our churches and sadly many people are lonely facing declining capabilities without hope, when they have much to offer.  I support Faith in Later Life’s vision to help churches share the good news of Jesus Christ with older people so that might enjoy life in all its fullness.” 

Kenneth M MacKenzie

Managing Partner, Target Advisers

“Mission Care is a Christian charity that cares for hundreds of older vulnerable adults. We welcome the privilege of actively supporting the work of Faith in Later Life. We believe it will be a resource that will bring glory to God, and be a real, practical blessing to many.”

David Evans

Chief Executive, Mission Care

“We are approached by many churches excited to hear about our work, some of whom have struggled to find us. “Faith in Later Life” will play a vital role in helping churches to connect with charities like ours that have developed a model of social action which could be a real asset to their ministry.” 

Jeremy Sharpe

National Coordinator, Linking Lives

“It has been my privilege to have been involved in outreach amongst older people as a trustee of Outlook Trust, in various projects relating to Seniors with the Baptist Union and pioneering a Seniors ministry at Winchester Baptist Church.  The fields are white unto harvest in this whole area of ministry and it is wonderful that Faith in Later Life is setting out to support churches in mission with older people so that more people will be able to live life to the full in the knowledge of Jesus as their friend and saviour.”

Elizabeth Stacey

Former Trustee of the Outlook Trust, Seniors' Worker (Winchester Baptist Church)

Adrian Reynolds
