About the Pastoral Group Print

The Pastoral Care Team is a group of mature volunteers who value spending time with those in our community who find themselves in need of someone to talk with. There are many situations in which it can be good to talk……


…when we find ourselves facing difficult circumstances, and would like someone to talk with who is outside our situation;


…when we find ourselves struggling with an illness, which means we can’t get out like we used to;


…when we find ourselves missing someone we have lost and would love to talk with someone about how we feel.


We all value our privacy and need to be sure that those we talk with will be sensitive to this and that we will always be treated with respect and courtesy. All members of the Pastoral Care Team understand the importance of confidentiality and you can be assured that any conversations will be treated courteously, with respect and discretion.


We also recognise that it is important that any visits, which are organised, do happen and continue to meet your needs. All visits and conversations will only happen by mutual agreement.


If you would like someone to visit you, the first step is easy.   Please contact the Pastoral Care Team or the Parish Office and we will do what we can to support you.   Or if there is someone you are concerned about or who has not been in church for a while (or if you have a need and would like a visit), then there are some Pink Cards at the back of the church you can fill in to alert the Pastoral Care Team.
