One of the things we pride ourselves in as a church is being family. There are too many examples to list of where church members have been there for one another. At times people will feel they have need or a situation where they would like more support. This is where the pastoral care team comes in.
They are a team of people with a recognised gift and passion to care for others The team has people experienced in pastoral care, they are all skilled listeners and trained in prayer ministry.
Peter Gray (the Pastoral Care Team Leader) can put you in contact with one of the team, you can contact Peter by emailing or calling the office on 01642 783814 (please leave a message on our answerphone outside office hours)
The team can help with:
- General advice and support
- Practical help
- Hospital visiting
- Home visiting and home Communion
- Bereavement support
- On going support and listening
If your circumstances require expertise beyond the skills of the group, they can assist in finding the support you need for example, we have signposted people to professional counsellors and money management services in the past.
