Regular monthly visits are made to the Abbeyfield Home (Stracey Road), Chy Nampara, Denyer Court, King Charles Court Nursing Home, MHA Langholm Care Home, Roscarrack House, Sheldon House Nursing Home, Scott House Abbeyfield Home (Mawnan Smith), Trevern Care Home and The White House Residential Home.
The aim is to:
- Provide opportunity for worship and Christian fellowship to residents who may no longer be able to attend church.
- To offer spiritual support for residents and staff.
- To listen and care, to show and to share the love of Christ with all.
- To help people connect or re-connect with God.
An informal service of no more than 30 minutes includes singing of well-known hymns, interspersed with short prayers, a Bible reading, maybe a poem, and a “Thought for the Day”. Teams consisting of a leader/speaker, musician and singers are drawn from about 12 local churches. After each service members of the team stay to chat with residents, often over a cup of tea. Joys and struggles are shared and, if requested, prayers offered for any in particular need.
