Pastoral care needs to be at the heart of any community of faith. For many years Church of the Good Shepherd has had such a group, who feel called to serve those who find themselves vulnerable and unable to attend church services and activities for a variety of reasons .Often a sense of isolation and loneliness becomes a debilitating part of their lives. They may even feel forgotten.
It is to address this situation that the current pastoral group ,working closely with our vicar, visits church members in Care Homes, hospital, at home, writes cards to the housebound, bereaved or ill, and generally seeks to extend the hand of friendship and the love of Christ to those needing extra support and encouragement..
Always our initiatives are grounded in prayerfulness and a dependence on God to guide and strengthen us in what we do.
More needs to be done to develop this ministry within the life of the church, but we progress one step at a time. We meet five times a year,prayerfully considering our concerns and priorities.
Anyone interested in finding out more should contact our vicar, or Margy Weir, co-ordinator,by email here.
