Join us in celebrating MHA Sunday 2024

9 June 2024

MHA Sunday takes place on 9 June and we look forward to coming together to celebrate the power of friendship as we reflect on Mark 4:30-32, the Parable of the Mustard Seed.

This years theme, befriending
This years theme, befriending

This year, our patron Pam Rhodes will introduce us to Dot and Grace, whose friendship began with a simple gesture of conversation. Together, we will pray for those in later life and those who support them as we think about the impact a small action like conversation can have in making later life something to be both lived well and celebrated.

Meet Dot & Grace

Dot and Grace have nurtured a friendship through MHA's befriending service. Our patron Pam Rhodes was there when they met for the first time.
