The main topics and speakers on the day are:

Purpose-driven seniors (Louise Morse).   Based on her Book "What's Age Got To Do With It?", Louise outlines God’s design for seniors, from the Scriptures; His purpose, addressing ageism, unique attributes of old age, with ‘case studies’ etc., and what it means for us and our churches.

Enabling  Seniors in their ministries (Janet Jacob).   Janet and her husband, Peter, are involved in pastoral care for seniors in their church, and they know the difference between doing things for and with seniors -  enabling them to grow in their own ‘ministries’, but  not overlooking those who do need more support.

Joy and Peace in the Tough Places (Dr Jennifer Bute).  Drawing on  her own experiences, Dr Bute gives some valuable insights on how to cope with guilt and inner pain, and find joy and peace from scripture, and through the Lord Jesus.
