Anna Chaplaincy Cumbria Conference – Dancing with grace: New rhythms in later life
Churches Together in Cumbria are hosting their 2022 Anna Chaplaincy Cumbria Conference in September. Ageing brings many challenges and as we support older people on their spiritual journeys, there are many opportunities to find spaces and moments of grace, tapping into the deeper rhythms we live by. The conference aims to offer an opportunity to learn about ministry with older people from excellent speakers and through practical workshops. 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. The main speakers are Maureen O’Neill (Faith in Older People) and Debbie Ducille (Church lead, Anna Chaplaincy national team).
