There are lots of opportunities to get plugged into the wider life of St Aidan’s. Pastoral care is the ministry of caring and giving provided by pastors and other parish leaders to members of the congregation with a focus on healing, reconciling, guiding and sustaining. Listed below are some of the ways our team provides pastoral care.
“I was sick and you looked after me” (Matthew 25:36)
Do you know of someone who is on bed rest, can no longer make it to church or just needs a friendly phone call? Ask them if they would like someone from our pastoral care team to give them a buzz…
Home Visiting and Communion:
An important part of pastoral care at St Aidan’s is home visiting. This is done both by staff and a small team of parishioners. Sometimes this is to serve communion, other times it is to offer a listening ear to a valued friend and usually, it involves a cup of tea! If you would like to receive home communion or would value a visit – or you would like to be part of the team which offers this very important parish ministry, please contact us.
Would you like to be visited in the hospital or at home? Please speak to the clergy or contact the office if you would welcome a visit.
The purpose of our Prayer Circle is to offer pastoral care, through prayer support, for those with specific needs. If you’d like to get involved as either a member or someone who needs support, click here.
