A NEW venture to provide a short Christian service for people with memory loss and for carers is starting in Crediton.

The venture, called “Held Together”, will be held in the Boniface Centre on the third Monday of each month, between 10.30am and 11.30am.

There will be a theme, well-known hymns, a Bible reading, a short talk and prayer, followed by tea, coffee, biscuits, and cake. 

The service will be led by Crediton’s Anna Chaplains, Eileen Brassington and Caroline Smith, with help from members of Crediton’s Churches.

The Anna Chaplaincy was set up by Debbie Thrower, daughter of the late gardener Percy Thrower, to offer spiritual care for older people whether they have strong faith, little faith, or none.

Anna Chaplains work under the guidance of the minister of their Church.

More details on this national movement can be found at: annachaplaincy.org.uk if you would like to know more.

The next service is on August 21. A warm welcome awaits.
