AVENUE BAPTIST CHURCH

Member of the Baptist Union & local Baptist church network. A group Christian’s who meet regularly to worship God & serve the local, national & international community. A variety of small groups meet weekly. God is actively at work in this world, inviting people to worship, follow and enjoy a relationship with Him and He has given His church that same task. Here at Avenue we see being part of God’s mission as an outworking of our vision to see a transformed world through changed lives. This is something that encompasses every part of life and that’s why you will see the church is engaged with huge variety of activities, from Foodbanks and Winter Night Shelter’s to Alpha Courses and supporting Overseas Missionaries

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

Want to support carers & those with dementia in exploring faith & what it means fro them with disease. Also want to provide a welcoming environment for everyone where they feel cared for & can see God’s love in action towards them in a non judgmental  environment. Where possible to be of practical help. 

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Ensuring the majority have at least done the dementia friends training.
