We look forward to welcoming you in person to the 2022 Anna Chaplaincy Cumbria Conference. The day comprises speakers, workshops and a celebration service giving thanks for the ministry that has developed alongside older people in Cumbria over the last few years. Our main speakers are Maureen O’Neill (Faith in Older People) and Debbie Ducille (Church lead, Anna Chaplaincy national team).


There will also be the opportunity to attend two workshops covering different aspects of ministry with older people:

  • Running a dementia tea service

  • Playlist for life

  • Prayer and memory

  • Planning for the future

  • Practical craft activity

  • Creating dementia-friendly resources


There is no charge but please bring your own lunch (hot and cold drinks provided).
