Biblical Perspective

As set out in our basis of faith, we hold to the divine inspiration and authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God—fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.

This video lists some of the scriptural passages that refer to older age, and the video hopefully enables reflection around how Churches should see the vital role of older Christians- and the value God places on older people.

The following lessons from the Scriptures are adapted from “Living out God’s Purpose in our Senior Years”, written by Louise Morse and Roger Hitchings and published by Pilgrims’ Friend Society in 2014. Click here to buy a copy of this book.

Finishing Well: A God's eye view of ageing

We were delighted that following a project with the Pastors’ Academy at the London Seminary and Revd Canon Ian Knox (a published author and evangelist) Ian has written our first Faith in Later Life book, which  focuses on God’s promises and purposes for us, and in doing so enables the reader to reflect on how God speaks into older age and shapes us in later life.

This book is now available for purchase on the SPCK website. And if you want to 'try before you buy' you can read a 'taster' chapter on our resource hub.
