Older Christians are probably the greatest underutilised resource in UK churches.

In some churches considerable resources are spent on children, youth and young families, while little or nothing is done to understand and respond to the needs of older Christians. We would like to change that and each additional member makes that more possible.

A questionnaire was circulated to members in the autumn of 2012.  One third of the members replied. 

One of the questions asked members to record their denomination or Church affiliation.  This was the result:

Anglican                               40           41.2%

Baptist                                  6             6.2%

Congregational                 1             1.0%

Methodist                           16           16.5%

Quaker                                 3             3.1%

Roman Catholic                 12           12.4%

Salvation Army                  1             1.0%

Scottish Episcopal            1             1.0%

Unitarian                             1             1.0%

United Reformed            10           10.3%

Not declared                      7             7.2%

The Executive Committee will be seeking further information about denomination affiliation.
