Pastoral Care

Everyone Will Recognise That You Are My Disciples—When They See The Love You Have For Each Other


Caring for one another is at the heart of the Christian message. We see this loving care in action on a daily basis in a multitude of ways.

Each member of our churches is allocated a named Pastoral Visitor; however, much of our Pastoral Care is exercised without this particular label. This might include visiting, friendship, praying for each other – either in each others’ company or in our own private devotions. It might include giving lifts to hospital or doctor’s appointments. Much of our Pastoral Care is given without fuss, or identifying it as such. As a Circuit, we can celebrate the wide variety of Pastoral Care that takes place within our churches. Indeed, it is often through Pastoral Care that those on the fringe or outside the church are brought to faith and into our worshipping communities.
