St James Church in South Anston run a weekly craft group who have made sensory aprons as a gift for their local care home. Sensory aprons and blankets can provide valuable stimulation for residents through the use of zips, pockets and different textures of fabrics. These can be expensive for care homes or individual families to buy.

Services in Care Homes

St James Church in South Anston run fortnightly services at Woodlands Care Home. These services are adapted to meet the needs of the residents and often incorporate games and crafts. The church has also hosted afternoon tea celebratons for the residents at the church hall which has included worship, fellowship and small group bible studies adapted to the residents needs.
