Make your Methodist Homes Sunday the 'Best Sunday For Ages'
This Methodist Homes Sunday takes place on 10 June 2018 and we're encouraging churches across the country to download our resources and come together to help reduce loneliness and isolation for older people living throughout the UK.
The theme of worship for 2018 is 'Full of Years' and we're inviting church groups to celebrate the day by taking our theme and looking at ways in which we can help one another to support older members of our church and society as well as recognise and value the unique insights and perspectives of those who are in later life.
By holding a service, your church helps us to do practical things that help older people not just survive, but to thrive. Your charitable support will help us provide services that make a real difference to the quality of the lives of the people we serve. Our Chaplains who are a source of counsel, advice and guidance; our Music Therapists who can give someone with dementia the opportunity to express their feelings; and our Live at Home community based schemes that help to make sure people don’t become isolated or lonely in their own home.
We've collated a series of downloadable resources including an Order of Service to help plan your day. You can download and print as many as you need or, if you prefer, get in touch to order them through the post. To request a speaker for your service, order Gift Aid or collection envelopes or for more information, please contact the Fundraising Team on 01332 221641 or email FundraisingEnquiries@mha.org.uk
