Over 6 years ago, we held our first weekly church service, as at the time two residents had said they would like one.
Catherine, our Activities Coordinator, found a CD of hymns and printed out the words so that the residents could sing along to them; and that’s how our service first started.
Since then it has gone from strength to strength with over fifteen residents attending each week. One resident gives a Bible reading while another reads the closing prayer. We also have a friend of one of the residents who joins us each week and kindly sings a hymn for the residents. We also hold Holy Communion once a month. There are plans to take the service viral and hold a live link with a Church in Scotland via Skype, which everyone is very excited about!
The church service is very much the residents’ own and it’s because of their efforts that the weekly church service is the great success it is today. Family and friends also join us and it’s a weekly event that everyone looks forward to.Read More
