Faith communities - how you can get involved

1943 marked the beginning of Rev. Walter Hall’s mission when he and a group of Methodists sought to improve the quality of life for older people. Their mission saw the start of MHA, and to this day, we remain incredibly proud of our connection to the Methodist faith and those we have helped by coming together as one.

Our Methodist beliefs and values play a vital role in all we do, including our dedicated chaplaincy service that supports the spiritual needs of our residents and members, alongside our annual MHA Sunday service, where we celebrate our collaboration. We actively encourage inclusivity and working as one, so involve your church, faith or religious group and join us as we enable older people to live later life well.
