MHA Sunday 2020

Sunday 14th June

Join us for our virtual MHA Sunday Service at 3pm. This will be a service of remembrance, focusing on the kindness shown by our colleagues and volunteers at this time. The service will remain online available for you to watch anytime.

14 Jun

"Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay.
Your people will be my people and your God my God" (Ruth 1:16)

Our virtual memorial service

Due to the Covid-19 crisis, our memorial and remembrance service will be delivered virtually to honour those we have lost within our MHA family, with numbers increasing, but currently over 400 residents and three colleagues. We will also take a moment to acknowledge the many thousands worldwide who have lost their lives or been affected by this tragedy to date.

Our theme this year is kindness, inspired by the book of Ruth, and the care given by our volunteers and colleagues. So this is also an opportunity for us to give thanks and celebrate our specialist care and support services, enabling people to live later life well across Great Britain.

How do I access the MHA virtual service? 

Our online service will be broadcast on YouTube at 3pm on Sunday 14 June. More information on how to access this will be available soon, if you check this page before the service, a link will be available.

The service will feature hymns, prayers and readings from our MHA family and special guest speakers.

How do I host my own virtual service? 

If your congregation is unable to make our 14 June virtual MHA Sunday service, you can still use our order of service and resources linked to the book of Ruth, which is the theme of Bible month. If you haven't already, fill in the form below to receive the resources straight to your inbox.

You may still order Gift Aid envelopes below or you can set up an online offering for your church, circuit or district of your own by setting up a JustGiving fundraising page.

Our order of service features the theme of kindness as Ruth shows kindness to her older mother-in-law, Naomi, and in turn Ruth and Naomi are blessed. The text used in our order of service is Ruth 2:1-13

Can I still host a church service later on in the year? 

If you'd prefer to wait until your church congregation can meet in person and host your MHA Sunday service, you're welcome to do so. All the resources will still be here on the webpage waiting for you.

How do I fundraise during lockdown? 

You can make a donation to our virtual MHA Sunday appeal by visiting our online donation form. Please select 'MHA Sunday' whilst making your donation.

All funds raised will go towards our ongoing costs during this difficult time, including the supply of much needed personal protective equipment (PPE) for our dedicated colleagues and residents. We rely on donations and fundraising in order to provide our life-enhancing services including chaplaincy, music therapy and our community groups.

While in this time of social distancing you can still support MHA to enable people to live later life well. We hope you join us on MHA Sunday 14 June, although you are welcome to host your event any day of the year. You could hold a virtual coffee morning, an individual sponsored walks or virtual quiz night in aid of MHA.

You can contact us if you need advice or further resources by emailing fundraisingenquiries@mha.org.uk or calling 01332 221 888 (option 1).
