Memory Worship

Memory Worship and Memory Worship at Home – worship for those with and without Dementia

What is Memory Worship and who is it for?

It is our vision in Memory Worship, that people with or without dementia can approach God, worship and praise God and feel God’s caring presence together. Worship can be a channel for recalling the past, creating feelings of comfort, familiarity and spiritual fulfillment. We all have a continuing need to worship and experience a loving encounter with God and the afternoon will take a regular pattern of welcome; singing well-known hymns, reading familiar passages of scripture and saying the Lord’s Prayer together. The formal part of the service will last 30 minutes, before leading into a craft activity and hospitality, which provide an opportunity for conversation to reinforce the theme of the service. Memory Worship is held monthly using a consistent and informed group of volunteers.

Memory Worship takes place from 2pm-4pm on the 3rd Monday of the month at Wesley.

Memory Worship also takes place from 2pm-4pm on the 1st Monday of the month at Thorpe Bay Methodist Church. A leaflet with further info is available at the link below. Their address is: The Broadway, Thorpe Bay, Essex, SS1 3HQ. Tel: 01702 589263. You can find their website by clicking here

August 2021 – The theme of August Memory Worship service is ‘In God we find Joy.’

We have all been through a very difficult time over the past year and sometimes it has been hard to feel joyful. Our service this month considers the individuality of joy. For me, much joy has come from spending time in Gods wonderful creation but specifically my garden. For this reason, after we have opened the Memory Worship box, I am going to bring this month’s Memory Worship service into the August Leigh on Sea sunshine of my garden.
