Pastoral Care

Recognising an important part of Christianity is being of service to those around us, we aim to support the local community in prayer and action, giving caring help in all aspects of life, both good and bad.

The Ministry Team share pastoral care with a small but dedicated team of Lay Pastoral Visitors, in whom the Church has discerned special gifts. They are people of prayer who reflect on the dilemmas of modern life in the light of the Bible and Christian tradition and who want to communicate to others the message of Christ through caring action.

Pastoral Visitors have a variety of roles including:

  • supporting the sick & bereaved
  • home and hospital visits
  • lifts to appointments or church
  • assistance with shopping
  • filling in forms and returns
  • writing letters
  • prayer ministry
  • and help with a myriad of other “good neighbourly” concerns

Confidentiality is always given the highest priority.

Home Communion is also available on request.

May we also encourage you to consider joining the team? This would involve some training, and a recommendation from the church leaders. Do consider whether God may be calling you to serve others in this way.

If you are interested in joining in a group please contact one of the group leaders.
