One of our Readers, Brenda Webb, takes responsibility for pastoral care of older people within St John’s and also for our involvement with the elderly in Our Parish and beyond; this includes visiting the housebound and taking them communion.
Meetings and Services
There is a service/fellowship meeting in Tudor Grange in the Parish once a month.
There is currently one afternoon homegroup which serves older people; this meet once a fortnight.
This takes place on the first Tuesday of each month except January, August and September. A team of helpers, led by Pamela Moseling, prepares a three course lunch for the elderly at the Boy’s Brigade Hall. The lunches are attended by about 30 people and Peter the vicar usually gives a short talk during lunch and we close with prayer and a hymn.
