Ideas and Stories

Churches, and individuals in churches, can reach, serve and empower older people in many ways: practical support at home, health and wellbeing, serving the community, transport, visiting and befriending, lunch and other meals, social groups, care at home or housing. There are resources on all of these in the Resource Hub.

Here are some ideas:

Run a bereavement course
Reach out to care homes
Run a holiday at home
Run a befriending scheme in the community
Hold a seniors tea/lunch
Ask someone in your church sign up to be a Faith in Later Life church champion, or do so yourself!
