Have you heard of Fresh Expressions? Fresh Expressions works with Christians from a broad range of denominations and traditions and seeks to transform communities and individuals through championing, resourcing and multiplying new ways of being church. There are some great examples of creating fresh expressions amongst older people, particularly, but not exclusively, those who live in sheltered housing accommodation here https://www.freshexpressions.org.uk/guide/examples/older . You will also find some really helpful practical resources listed on this area of the Fresh Expressions website. Fresh Expressions for older people is called “Neither Young Nor Old” (NYNO).  The title was inspired by Galatians 3.28, ‘There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for all are one in Christ Jesus’. In Christ Jesus there is also neither young nor old.

Ageing Issues Study Network

Christians on Ageing launched a new Network in September 2015.  The idea is simple: to bring together people who have an academic, practical and pastoral experience of issues concerning age and ageing – and to allow the conversation to flow, and ideas to be exchanged. It is not intended to pursue research just from an academic aspect but to confront important issues more broadly, to reflect on them, and to propose ideas for implementation or further study. The new Network will follow the pattern established by our Dementia Network which involves over 250 people, from a wide variety of backgrounds, in the exchange of information and good practice on issues of interest to dementia sufferers and their carers. An initial consultation has started with people who have expressed an interest.  If you would like to be part of the Network please send an e-mail to info@ccoa.org.uk or any of the contacts listed on our website.
