"Hate, at the heart of this kind of sin, is not negated by bombing, by punishment or some eye for an eye revenge. It is negated by the love of a tortured and crucified God coming into a room and wishing peace on those who were quite prepared to run off when he is arrested. The darkness of sin is only overcome by a change of minds, by love, trust and forgiveness - and not just at the personal level but particularly at the national level too."

Pastoral

 

The early church in the first century AD worked hard to support one another as well as the community around.  Caring, hospitality, generosity and love were marks of a Christian environment.  We aim to be like that.  It is important, whether a visitor, a resident or someone with a second home here that, through the rough times you are supported.  Everyone in the church, in that sense, has the responsibility for ministry.  We are all about caring. 

 

  

The churches maintain a number of house groups.  These are self-monitoring groups, ones which meet occasionally and where friends visit friends. 

 

Also the churches have pastoral care visitors where there is special need and individuals cannot get out themselves.  This is not visits from the professional services, but from friends who care because that's what this faith grows.  The chaplain is happy to provide home communion for those who would like that and cannot get to a church themselves.

 

We also have regular visits to Sanyres residential home where we also provide a simple Holy Communion service.

 


Pastoral care may be a ministry you feel called to be able to do, if so, do have a word with the chaplain.

 

If you know of anyone in need whom we can help or you need help, please contact - see below.

 

"For when you did this for others, you did it for me," said Jesus.
