About Us:

We are a charity set up in 1944 with the specific purpose of providing care and accommodation to the elderly and infirm who are regular attenders at, or members of a Gospel Standard Strict Baptist Chapel. This service is provided to people with a wide range of personal care needs, including those living with dementia and those with nursing needs who can be treated in our homes by community/district nurses. The types of service offered are; permanent residency, short stays for breaks or respite and day care. The manner and method of the provision of care and accommodation is designed to reflect the need to provide a spiritual as well as homelike atmosphere for like minded people.

In line with this ethos, the life of our homes centres around daily Bible reading and prayer, chapel services which can be attended in person or listened to via the relay into the homes, and the prayer meetings and hymn singing evenings organised in the homes.

Our three homes are very much rooted and grounded in the communities from which the people using our services come from. This means that people coming into our homes will often be living with lifelong friends and, in many cases, relatives as well. The management and staff of the homes (some of whom are also from the same background) are supported by volunteers drawn from local Gospel Standard chapels which means people living in the homes can stay in contact with the people they knew before moving in.
