This Network was launched in September 2015. Following a wide-ranging discussion at the launch meeting, an outline of possibilities under the heading Cherished or forgotten was circulated to the many people expressing an interest and further work was undertaken to establish the Enquiry proposed.
It has been a matter of deep disappointment that we have not been able to secure funding for the development of the Ageing Issues Study Network. We have not lost sight of the main purposes of the proposal: the identification of areas of concern in the spiritual and pastoral care of older people that need further study; the exchanging of information and the highlighting of results and experiences as a resource for all those engaged in ministry to older people.
We still hope that we can build this Network as a vehicle for the exchange of ideas, information and examples of good practice to stimulate debate and action in local churches, wider church councils and training initiatives.
