Faith in Seniors Conference – a Glorious Opportunity
Sat 13 May 2017, 9.00 am - 4.00 pm
How we manage the transition to a “majority elderly” demographic – with more people than ever before feeling lonely and needing purpose and support – will be one of the defining issues for the UK over the next 15 years. Statistically and scripturally this is a key area of ministry for the church and there are some signs that Christians are responding to this seismic societal shift and leading the way in celebrating the value of older people and caring in community – the all-age body of Christ in action.
That is why Pilgrims Friend Society (a Christian charity with 200 years track record of Christian Care for older people) and others like retired Christian GP Dr Jennifer Bute (founder of gloriousopportunity.org) have come together to create conferences and resources to inspire, equip and encourage churches and individual Christians in their ministries in this area.
You can join them at their flagship conference in Leicester on May 13 where there will be two keynote plenaries from Rev Dr Steve Brady (Moorlands Bible college) and Dr Jennifer Bute and over 15 seminars to choose from covering all aspects of ministry with older people delivered by expert speakers including author Louise Morse & Rev Roger Hitchings.
Admission is free and lunch will be provided. To find out more about the event, click here.
