Pastoral Care - a spiritually caring church
There are many times in life, maybe tough times, when you feel that you would like to or need to talk with someone who will listen to you with empathy, understanding and compassion in a totally non-judgemental way.
Someone who can respond with an active and listening ear. Someone who is able to get alongside you in practical ways to bring comfort and reassurance. This is done with total confidentiality and we have safeguarding certification.
It maybe that you have worries at the moment you want to talk about, perhaps you are particularly stressed or overwhelmed by emergencies at home or at work, you maybe unemployed, wondering what to do in your retirement, have problems with financial matters, children, health and illness or other concerns such as bereavement in the family.
We also listen to older people who are housebound. This can take place either over the telephone or with a prearranged home visit. We can arrange home Communion or Prayers, if you are unable to come to Church.
If we can help you we will do our best or we can signpost you to other helping and caring agencies including our village Community Outreach group
