MHA Sunday 2020

Sunday 6th September to Thursday 31st December

MHA Sunday is an opportunity to give thanks for over 75 years of enabling people in later life to live well and to support our specialist care and support services across England, Scotland and Wales.

"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)

Inspired by the book of Ruth, and the care given by our thousands of volunteers and staff, our theme for MHA Sunday this year is 'kindness'.

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 (for churches following the Bible Month resource, this can be used alongside).

To help you mark MHA Sunday, together with a full order of service and sermon there is a video telling the story of our very own ‘Ruth’ and ‘Naomi’; Erika who started volunteering with MHA having experienced her own loneliness and who feels truly blessed by giving to others, and Ruth, one of our residents who feels so blessed from the care she has received.

How can I get involved?

Whether it’s a church service, holding a fundraising coffee morning or games night, your fundraising can enable people to live later life well. 

All donations are invested into the services we provide. We rely on donations and fundraising in order to provide our life-enhancing services including chaplaincy, music therapy and our community groups.

We've created a selection of downloadable resources to help plan your MHA Sunday event, from fundraising tips to event information posters. We suggest you mark MHA Sunday on 6 September, although you are welcome to host your event any Sunday this year.

To receive your downloadable resources, please complete the form below. We will then email you with a link to download your MHA Sunday resource kit (please also check your junk folder).
