We value …
the sense of belonging to Christ’s church and the sharing relationships we have within it.
Our vision is …
to encourage this sense of belonging to the Christian family and to deepen existing relationships and make new ones.
Life is meant to be shared. We are all created for community, fashioned for fellowship and formed for a family and none of us can fulfil God’s purposes by ourselves. That’s why it’s great to come together across our communities!
Now is a wonderful opportunity to build on the established initiatives in the benefice. So, for example, we are planning a Listening Skills course to enable people interested in pastoral care and visiting the housebound, elderly, lonely, or bereaved. We have also started a ‘Friendly Friday’ drop in once a month, a meet up for young and old.
Together we can better care and support one another.
We want to hear from you, but some ideas are:
a pastoral care team
a social events team
What skills and talents are needed to be part of the team growing this vision?
A pastoral heart and a love for God’s people
willingness to develop pastoral skills
