Creative Ideas For Ministry With The Aged


by Sue Pickering


Price: £24.99
Publisher:Canterbury Press imprint of Hymns Ancient & Modern Ltd
Published:September 2014



A great addition to an already good series of books.


Our population is growing older with the majority of people being over the age of 40, and this is very much reflected in many of our church congregations. This book provides a great framework for working alongside those in the upper brackets of years.

The book covers all the many situations you may work with the Aged—church, homes, hospices etc are all covered, and a number of services and ideas for activities of a pastoral nature are included. These deal gently and sensitively with some very real issues such as loneliness, bereavement, dementia etc

This is a great book for anyone who wants a great resource as they work alongside and minister to an older population.
