Best Sunday in Ages 2017
MHA

Methodist Homes/Live at Home is encouraging churches and supporters to have the 'Best Sunday for Ages' this June when the day kicks off a week of fundraising for the charity.

Traditionally MHA has held MHA Sunday on the second Sunday of June to enable Methodist churches to hold special services of thanksgiving to support the older person's charity. This year MHA has taken the decision to broaden out the day to have the 'Best Sunday for Ages' to encourage old friends and new to join in.

The theme for this year is 'Befriending Age', reflecting the importance MHA puts on combating loneliness and isolation and enabling older people to join in and create caring and supportive communities.

Friends of MHA are encouraged to take their Best Sunday and use it to support the work MHA does with older people, as Director of Chaplaincy and Spirituality Keith Albans explained.

He said: "We want to grow the work we do to support more older people so we came up with the idea of broadening out MHA Sunday and creating the Best Sunday for Ages.

"A Best Sunday for many of our friends is about going to church, so we have continued to provide worship materials so Methodist congregations across the country will still be able to hold their annual service and collection supporting MHA's work.The theme of worship this year is Befriending Age and looks at ways in which we can help one another to support older members of our church and society as well as learn from them how best to plan our own ageing journey."

Worship Resources include an Order of Service which can be used for Local Arrangement services, prayers, hymns, stories and links to video clips of MHA's work. They are available to download or you can contact MHA for printed copies.

Staff and volunteers from the Live at Home groups on the Island are very happy to come along to church services and talk about the work they do, and share stories on what's happening locally.
