We are introducing a Dementia Café, offering light refreshments and a place for talk and support, provided by Dementia Friends from within the Minster Community and supported by professionals working within the sector. It is not offered specifically as either a Christian or as a religious event.
After the Dementia Café, the intention is to offer a short Service at 12.00pm, that is dementia friendly, so people living with dementia who would want to attend a religious service can do so in a supported and specifically dementia friendly service.
People can either attend the Dementia Café or the Service or both without feeling that they are committed to attend for any particular period of time. It is hoped that these events will be offered on a monthly basis, wherever possible.
