Pastoral Care & Common Life
Parish Meals and Social Events
Being a Christian isn’t just about going to church, important as that is. We meet together as friends on rambles, at parties and parish lunches. We also enjoy working together to prepare for the Christmas Fair and our Summer Fete.
The Friendship Circle exists to offer members of our congregation and the wider community an opportunity to meet together for mutual friendship and support, while also engaging with outside speakers and presenters. There are a number of trips and meals out throughout the year.
We seek to offer a listening ear to those who have been recently bereaved, especially those whose loved one?s funerals have been taken by the parish clergy.
Jesus told us that we should love our neighbours as ourselves. We aim to be a community that cares for people whether or not they come to church. If you or somebody you know would like a visit because of sickness, bereavement or because life is difficult at the moment, please let us know.
A number of our congregation have undertaken basic training in listening skills, and others are pursuing a more advanced level. Our hope is to be able to provide good quality pastoral care when the need arises.
The Clergy are willing and available to meet with and talk with anyone seeking spiritual guidance and direction. Please make contact for an initial discussion. Referral to the Diocesan Network of Spiritual Directors is also possible.
Prayer & Intercession
We are committed to praying for local community, the Church and all who are in need. Prayer Requests can be submitted by following this link.
The Clergy are always happy to meet people, to pray with them, to listen and discuss matters of faith and Christian living, and where appropriate, hear Confessions. Please phone to make an appointment.
