What we do:

  • Act as a forum for parishes to share ideas and experiences of ministry by and to older people, to provide information and answer questions.
  •  Offer Seminars and Training Sessions on topics related to age as part of the diocesan training programme and also by request. These can be face to face or on Zoom.
  • Circulate an electronic bulletin every 2 months with news of current resources and other relevant information.  Email [email protected]  if you would like to receive this.

SAGE has collated some information and links to useful resources for churches, offering suggestions relating to particular aspects of ministry alongside older people.  Download the resource sheets below:
