Exploring God in Dementia: Theology, Spirituality and Personhood
An ecumenical South West Regional Study Day for ministers, local preachers, Readers and church leaders
The aim of the day is to theologically reflect on what it means to minister to and with those who are living with the various forms of Dementia. As church leaders and pastors we minister with those who may ask us "Who am I?" What might this teach us about the personhood and love of God? How do we honour the memories and contributions of those who we love but who appear to fade before us? A day of speakers and workshops, plus exhibitions and resources.
Key note speakers and workshop leaders include:
Dr Peter Kevern: Associate Professor at Staffordshire University
Dr Pia Matthews: Lecturer at St Mary's University
Revd Dr Margaret Goodall: Former Chaplaincy Development Advisor with Methodist Homes for the Aged
Revd Dr Jo Collicutt: Oxford Diocesan Advisor for Spirual Care with older people and Intergenerational Worship
Lunch is included
