Seniors

“A grey head is a crown of glory; It is found in the way of righteousness.”

Proverbs 16:31

At TBC we have a thriving community of seniors, who are served and are serving through a variety of events and activities. We want everyone to be included in a community where each person can thrive.

God has given you unique gifts and life experiences that are important to our life here. To the extent you’re willing and able, we would love to invite you to use those gifts among us, both to continue your own personal growth, and to awaken the God-given potential of others.

We’re all about relationships, and we know that often in the third and fourth ages of life, time needs to be taken to recognise and meet particular needs. God’s heart is to bring healing and fullness to everyone.

Falls prevention

Thursday

Booking required

The Get up and GO! Falls Prevention exercise classes on Thursday mornings are for those people who have had a fall or have a fear of falling. We follow a progressive, evidence based exercise programme aimed at reducing the risk of falls as balance and strength improves. The classes are small, friendly and supportive where everyone works at their own pace. The weekly 60-minute exercise sessions are followed by refreshments with an opportunity to socialise with new friends.

The initial cost of attending a 36 week programme of classes is free of charge. The follow on classes cost £42 every 6 weeks.

To access or apply for the course call 01892 510200, or e-mail falls@goodneighbourproject.org.uk or visit www.goodneighbourproject.org.uk
