Event description
A day of talks, workshops and resources to help you grow your dementia friendly church.

About this Event

Last year we launched the Dementia Friendly Church Toolkit. This year we are celebrating Dementia Action Week with a day to support churches in continuing their dementia friendly church. We have a mixture of speakers, workshops and resources so that we hope there will be something for everyone whether your church is at the beginning of its journey or is already well on its way.

Keynote Speakers are:

Jennifer Bute - a retired GP and writer. Jennifer will speak about 'Dementia from the inside - the importance of faith in dealing with its challenges.'

Debbie Thrower - Founder of Anna Chaplaincy - Debbie will speak about the spiritual support of people with dementia through Anna Chaplaincy and the Gift of Years.

Workshops will cover topics such as: dementia friendly worship, building community connections, making your building dementia friendly, pastoral care, spiritual care, caring for carers, singing for the brain. We will ask attendees to choose workshops in advance so that we can match rooms to numbers.
