Support for Older People

mealsuppSt. John’s Church employs a part-time Pastor for Older People – Catriona Foster – who has an office base at The Crossway.

On Monday mornings during school term-time we run a small Over 70’s Drop In.  Anyone over the age of 70 is welcome to call in between 10.30 and 12.30 for tea/coffee, cake and a friendly chat.  We may also be able to help with a phone call that is proving tricky or could arrange an appointment for you to visit our DRC worker for Welfare Benefits Advice.

If you are an older person or someone who cares for an older person, you are welcome to call in at The Crossway where you can receive prayer or access useful information or make known any specific needs.

For details of other events for Over 70’s which take place at St John’s Church, you can contact Catriona at The Crossway.  These events include:

  • A service of Holy Communion on the 3rd Thursday every month at 10.30 am.  This is specifically arranged with the needs of older people in mind.  Transport can be provided and the service is followed by tea/coffee and home-made cakes.
  • A 3-day event called “Prime Time” each August.  This is a bit like a fun Holiday Club for the Over 70’s.  It is always over-subscribed so booking is essential.
  • Courses for older people which give opportunity to explore the Christian faith and grow deeper in faith.  At present there is a group of 26 people looking together at John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress.
