The growing older population presents challenges and opportunities:

  • Learning how to meet and connect with an older generation
  • Discerning the differences between work amongst the elderly (more traditional ‘Senior citizens’ work), and outreach to the growing number of fit and active retired
  • Gaining skills and tools in connecting with the older generation
  • Learning how to challenge and equip this generation to be fully active in church life and mission
  • Developing pastoral care skills
