Methodist Homes for the Aged (MHA) is a charity providing care homes, housing and support services for over 12,500 older people throughout Britain. MHA is not just for Methodists; about 50% of MHA residents are Christian, of which about 50% are Methodists. Ryelands, the home just along the road from Wallington Methodist Church, was the very first MHA care home.
To meet changing needs and current standards, Ryelands was completely rebuilt in 2004 to create a modern two-storey building in its own grounds and which now provides three kinds of facility: residential care in the part still called Ryelands; dementia care in the Brooklands wing; and self-contained retirement flats in Moorlands.
We support Ryelands because we believe we have a part to play in ensuring the highest quality of life for older people in our community.
The Ryelands Support Group organises a summer Fête and a Christmas Fair and raises funds to provide little extras for the residents, such as hiring a minibus for an outing.
You are welcome to join us for afternoon worship at Ryelands at 4 pm every Sunday.
