Spirituality and older people

Ministry to older people is an area of significant importance, but is often overlooked. There are many factors around the increasing isolation that older people may experience, and looking at how we as Christians can address this is one of the areas we have been looking at as a deanery.

Joanna Collicutt, the diocesan advisor for spirituality in older people came to speak to us in June 2013 and gave a helpful summary of the issues that face older people. These are worth using as a guide to see how effectively we as churches address these needs.
