About our work with Seniors
Mission to Seniors is an exciting outreach work involving the seniors' 'Honour' Cluster, (the staff and extensive enthusiastic volunteer team), who seek to serve the spiritual and social needs of seniors from our own church, other churches, and also those who can no longer easily attend any services.
The annual programme is available on the Seniors Calendar. The main meetings are Silver Service ( first Thursday in the month) , a Silver Seekers Group, (third Thursday), various concerts, annual Sunday afternoon Songs of Praise, services in local residential homes and, in the summer, two days of fun-packed activity, the very popular Holiday at Home.
We work closely with Age UK volunteers who, along with our own team, help to transport seniors to our meetings whenever possible.
The Mission to Seniors began in 2005 and has grown from strength to strength. About 60 people presently attend the monthly Silver Services. Any senior folk are welcome to attend.
Silver Seekers is a smaller group who meet together to further explore aspects of Christian life, through Bible study and through sharing life experiences.
Whatever the meeting, tea and yummy cakes, laughter and fun, seem to form a crucial part of our times together! Our team are always on hand to offer support, prayer, and a friendly listening ear whenever folk express a need. Home visits are a growing aspect of the work with seniors.
