Vision and Values
Christians on Ageing – official name Christian Council on Ageing – is a voluntary, national, ecumenical member-based organization. It is a resource to the Churches and to other bodies and individuals concerned with the needs, especially the spiritual needs, of all older people.
Christians on Ageing believes that the spiritual needs of older people are often not appreciated or met by the Churches, nor is the potential contribution that older people can make to the Churches being fully realised. It recognises the contribution that the Churches have made, and continue to make, in providing care and support for older people.
Christians on Ageing complements the activities of other voluntary agencies such as Age UK and the work of central and local government in health and social care.
Christians on Ageing publishes booklets and a quarterly magazine (free to members); organises conferences; provides speakers; encourages research and the study of ageing issues; has set up networks of people engaged in specific aspects of growing older, including spiritual, mental and physical need; and provides links to relevant organisations.
Our aims and approach
- improving understanding on issues that matter

- contributing to innovation in work with dementia
- responding to enquiries on age and ageing
