Next Sunday is MHA Sunday. MHA celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, and Methodist Homes Sunday will place a special emphasis on the achievements of age and the completeness of life.
This year our theme of worship is 'Full of Years' and we're inviting church groups to celebrate the day by taking our theme and looking at ways in which we can help one another to support older members of our church and society as well as recognise and value the unique insights and perspectives of those who are in later life. There will be a retiring collection next Sunday for their work, and GiftAid envelopes will be available.
