Pastoral Care Group

 

Our main focus is on the wellbeing and care of our parish community.   This is achieved in many and varied ways including communication, visiting, transport, involvement of former parishioners in quarterly activities and small social events.

 

Our Welcome Team plays a very important role and is the face of the church to newcomers to our parish.

Having this group ensures that visitors and new and/or potential parishioners are made to feel at home and are invited into the community.

How you can help

  • Talk to one of the Pastoral Care Team to see how you can contribute.

  • Think about people who are in need – and let one of the clergy or the Pastoral Care Team know.
