Holding a Methodist Homes Sunday is a fantastic way to demonstrate your church’s desire to remember older people; to remember Moses’ injunction to ‘choose life’ and support us in our aim to make the later years’ of people’s lives as meaningful as possible.
It is our hope and our prayer that more churches will hold a service in our anniversary year than ever before. Whether you hold the service on the official date for Methodist Homes Sunday of 9th June or an alternative day more suited to your church calendar, you will be supporting us in providing services like Live at Home, chaplaincy and music therapy; services that help give meaning and purpose to older people.
“MHA’s music therapy can provide someone like Mum with enjoyment and relief from
the confusion of dementia – if you believe that’s a worthwhile goal, please give a donation.”
If you would like more information or to request a speaker for your service, call Lesley France on 0113 272 8466 or email Lesley.email@example.com .
If your church has raised funds for Methodist Homes and you do not have an MHA Circuit Representative to hand it to, please visit our Donate Now page for details of where to send your donation.
