We are so thankful to God for everyone who supports us in giving and in prayer. Your help makes it possible for us to inspire and equip churches to empower and serve older people by providing free resources, encouragement, and support to hundreds of Faith in later Life Church Champions. We couldn't do it without you!
There are 11.9 million older people in the UK. There are more older people than younger, and the church is ageing at twice the rate the country is. And we know that over 5 million older people say television or their pet is their main company and that 1 million older people say they are always or often lonely.
These statistics represent challenges and opportunities.
Church is a wonderful family in which older people can be accepted and known, where they can find friendship and a sense of belonging, come to know God's forgiveness and love, and respond to His irrevokable call to make disciples, at any age.
We are on a mission to inspire and equip Christians to reach, serve and empower older people everywhere, through the local church, so that older people can find and know faith in later life.
Faith in Later Life brings together over 500 years expertise of four leading Christian charities spearheading Christian mission with and through older people, providing a central hub of resources to help guide, enable and encourage churches and people, older or otherwise, in many different aspects of later life. We also have a network of Church Champions, often providing additional support through Faith in Later Life, to their church communities.
We commission projects and resources, where there is a gap, so that we can equip Christians and churches to effectively reach, serve and empower older people everywhere.
And we are founding partners in the free Daily HOPE telephone service, which has provided hymns, prayers and reflections to hundreds of thousands of older people since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
