The Scriptures show a wisdom-based culture, one where older people contribute from their experience and learning. This conference looks at bringing God’s design into today’s society, connecting people across all generations in our churches and communities.

Why restoring the Biblical view of old age is vital today

Stephen Hammersley looks at the Scriptural view of old age and how restoring this in today’s culture will benefit people of all ages.

Church pastoral care

Janet Jacob and her husband Peter are involved in pastoral care for older people at church, and talk about what works in building links with younger Christians.

Living God’s purpose in senior years

Louise Morse looks at the importance of recognising the different cultures of older people, and how they can be enabled and empowered to fulfil the role God intended for them.
