Jenny Lemmon (from Elmwood Church, Salford) found that she could communicate better with her elderly mother who is in a nursing home, by singing the hymns of her youth to her.
When Jenny saw that other residents also wanted to join in with the singing, the idea of the Dawn Project was conceived.
Manchester City Mission are working with Jenny to build a team of people who will visit homes around the area to sing and share the Christian faith with the residents.
Sharing God’s love, His Word and His truth with these folk in the last years of life is a truly humbling experience and a great privilidge.
Helen, who volunteers with Jenny, says:
I joined The Dawn Project in March 2013 and have thoroughly enjoyed visiting the various residential homes and sharing the love of Jesus with the residents and staff. It has been a joy beginning to build up a personal relationship with these dear elderly people and a privilege to be able to pray with many of them.
