Wem Chapel’s Dementia Friendly Service, led by Local Preacher Susan Dutton was inclusive and interactive food for the spirit. The service demonstrated how incorporating, “old favourite” hymns, a comforting touch, instruments, a focal point and talking with rather than to an aging congregation, can help those with dementia to better participate in church.
The Wem Cluster are planning to roll out the Churches Together initiative across the Northern Area of the Circuit. It is hoped that similar services will be offered across the Circuit.
