The Older People’s Ministry is provided by members of Ashington Church who serve in the community, supporting the Village Wardens and other local volunteers.

The aim of the team is to support, promote and develop social contact for older people.  We help with Ashington Village Lunch Club; the Monthly Vintage Tea, Monday afternoon games sessions during winter months; provision of three trained minibus drivers who help with lifts to social events and shopping trips; providing transport to Church Lane Café, for the Thursday morning Communion Service, as well as hospital/medical visits and some social visiting.  We arrange and organise an older men’s group, having 4 or 5 outings during the year to various venues such as aeronautical and motor museums.
