The Meeting Place – Anna Chaplaincy
The Meeting Place (TMP) has worked for over 10 years from its base in Bookham to support those who are isolated in our community. We have now taken the exciting step of appointing Anne Milton-Worssell as an Anna Chaplain to reach out to older people in Bookham and District.
TMP has been authorised by the Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF) to establish this post, which is one of a growing number of Anna Chaplains across the country, with a specific ministry to older people. Our Anna Chaplain joins a team of volunteers who are already working in the local care home and in a telephone befriending service. Click here for the national Anna Chaplaincy website.
Anne’s responsibilities will include:
- Offering spiritual support to older people whether they are living in their own home, care homes or sheltered housing
- Supporting and training family and professional carers in the delivery of spiritual care as part of an old person’s care needs
- Advocating for the needs of older people across our churches and the wider community.
