Lambeth Palace hosted a church’s coffee morning for seniors yesterday to encourage its commitment to sharing Jesus with older people.

Holy Trinity Claygate, a parish church in Surrey, holds a regular event called Connections, which offers a safe and welcoming community for local seniors living in Claygate to connect with each other and the church and to discover the love of Jesus.

Archbishop Justin Welby, who has made evangelism a priority for his ministry, visited Holy Trinity Claygate last September and invited the Connections group to Lambeth Palace.
