Rector's 2nd March 2015 Letter

Many of us will have had the experience of a family member or friend suffering from one or another form of this very widespread illness, and it can make a huge difference if people around the person know how best to help them cope.  The church community can and should be very much part of this.

 

Bishop Robert recently said, in a letter to clergy around Devon, “In our ministry among people living with dementia we have a unique opportunity to witness to human dignity in an age that idolises the young and the beautiful, often at the expense of older people in the community. With an aging population this challenge is topical as well as central to the values of the Christian gospel.”

 

With this in mind, we are working to make all our churches welcoming places, and as a beginning we are very happy to welcome Sally Farrant, the Diocesan Social Responsibility Officer to speak on ‘Becoming a Dementia Friendly Church’ at Farringdon Church on Sunday March 22nd at 6:30pm.

 

I do hope that we will see many from around the villages who have this issue close to their hearts.
