Pastoral Care

Christian pastoral care…

  • flows from our commitment to love one another because we are loved by God.
  • is about developing good relationships and enabling one another to follow and become more like Jesus.
  • reflects God’s desire to bring healing and wholeness of spirit, mind and body.
  • seeks to guide people to see God at work in their lives and to co-operate with him.

 

What we can do

  • If you (or someone close) is unwell we can offer prayer and a listening ear.
  • Prayer support via the prayer chain.
  • Short-term help like arranging transport, arranging meals or referring to services.
  • Pastoral carers who will work confidentially with you and who are aware of the kind of issues you may wish to talk about.
  • One to one discipleship and biblical reflection.

 

Things we won’t do

  • Judge.
  • Diagnose or recommend medication.
  • Discuss confidential issues with others.
  • Replace Social Services or other agencies.
  • Cover for illegal or harmful activity.
