Pastoral Care

An important part of the Church’s ministry is responding to Christ’s call to “love one another” and to “love our neighbour” - responding to people’s needs within the church family and the community.

Every one of us can be a support to others at different times, but there are also times when someone may appreciate a visit from the church’s pastoral team. Members of the pastoral team include our clergy and authorized Pastoral Assistants.

Our pastoral care includes visiting those who are unwell or in hospital; taking Holy Communion to people who are housebound or recovering from illness; visiting the recently bereaved; supporting, in whatever way we can, those who are going through difficult times, or who simply need a listening ear.

The annual Memorial Service is an opportunity for those who have been bereaved and who value a special service where they can remember and give thanks for their loved one, and many people appreciate the informal and welcoming tea held after the service.
