Pastoral care

Pastoral Visits

In addition to our ministers we have a trained team of Pastoral Visitors who are available to visit on a more regular basis anyone who finds themselves lonely or housebound, or just wants to talk.

 

Ill or in hospital?

If you are ill or you know someone from the parish who is ill or in hospital, please let the ministry team know and then visits can be arranged if that is what is desired. We like to support both the person who is sick and also their family. We can also add names to our weekly prayer list, but please check with the person first.

Holy Communion and/or anointing are available for anyone who is sick and would like this. It can be comforting to be anointed before facing surgery. It brings comfort and peace.

 

Communion at residential homes

We hold communion services at two Care Homes, Chiltern Court and Hampden Hall. Let us know if someone you know is making a move into residential care there, so that we can visit them and help them settle in.

 

Bereavement support

If someone who is important to you, family or a friend has died and you would like comfort and support please feel free to contact us. The Clergy are available at any time. Do not think you are troubling us, we know too how difficult it is when someone dies.

The Ministry Team and the Pastoral Care Team are available to support you for as long as you feel the need.

Please contact the ministry team if you or someone you know would like help in any of these ways.
