'A Great Place to Grow Old'
Updated: Sep 30, 2021
Reimagining ministry among older people - a new book that's brimming with ideas and encouragement for people wanting to pursue more ministry among those in their later years.
'The time is so ripe for this book. It's super-accessible and I can hear Tina speaking as she guides us through practical, imaginative ways to support and learn from older people.'
Debbie Thrower, Pioneer, Anna Chaplaincy
'We live in a society, and sometimes a church, that doesn't always appreciate the gifts that older people bring. Tina English brings a great deal of wisdom, huge experience, practical advice and ideas together in this invaluable guide to a vital and growing ministry in local churches.'
Rt Revd Dr Graham Tomlin, Bishop of Kensington
'This timely, informed and succinct resource will equip churches and communities to identify and address the needs of older people in a post-Covid world.'
Revd Dr Albert Jewell, Secretary of Christians on Ageing Dementia Network
Tina English is the founder of Embracing Age, a faith-inspired charity dedicated to improving the lives of older people, which aims to link every one of the 17,500 care homes in the UK with a local church. Her book, which includes a chapter on Anna Chaplaincy, is published by Darton, Longman and Todd.
Anna Chaplaincy network members attending the annual Gathering online next month (October 13 and 14, which is by invitation only) will be offered a special discount on the £12.99 cover price.
