Connecting communities and churches with great communication!

Since starting her full-time role, St Alban’s Anna Chaplaincy lead Maggie Dodd has regularly produced a guide for older people in her area which outlines services, groups and hospitality for older people offered by local churches, along with a helpful guide to other organisations and ways to get help. Over 20 different churches are captured in this bi-annual booklet, representing all major denominations in the area as well as Compassionate Café and, of course, the Anna Chaplaincy team’s activities and offer of support.

Recently, Maggie sent the latest edition to Debbie Ducille, who reflects:

‘Maggie brings a wide range of skills to her Anna Chaplaincy role, having worked as a graphic designer, so this guide is beautifully crafted and a highly professional resource. But what we really applaud is Maggie’s total commitment to working ecumenically, which is demonstrated in this booklet. She also works hard at communicating as widely as she can across the community, ensuring information gets to as many older people as possible. Not many of us have her design skills, but all of us in Anna Chaplaincy can aim to develop these wide, deep church and community connections, which Maggie’s booklet helps to sustain.’

It was such a pleasure to see Anna Chaplaincy ministry highlighted earlier this year by the diocese of St Alban’s – you can take a look at photos and a super film of the team in action here. Congratulations, Maggie, Ruth and Peter!
