Pastoral Care Group
Pastoral care needs to be at the heart of any community of faith. For many years, the 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 aspect of their lives and they may even feel forgotten.
Addressing this situation, the current pastoral group, working closely with the Vicar, visits church members in Care Homes, hospital or at home. The group corresponds with the housebound, bereaved or ill and generally seeks to extend the hand of friendship and the love of Christ to those in need of extra support and encouragement.
The group’s initiatives are always grounded in prayerfulness and a dependence on God to guide and strengthen all that can be done.
However, more needs to be done to develop this ministry within the life of the church. The group meets five times a year, prayerfully considering our concerns and priorities.
Should you wish to find out more about the Pastoral Care Group, please contact the Vicar or Margy Weir, the co-ordinator.
