‘I give you a new commandment. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.’ (John 13).
We seek to care for the spiritual and material needs of one another and all those in the community in the name of the God of love.
Pastoral care takes different forms across the parish. It includes pastoral conversations with the clergy or other Christians, visits, home communion in times of illness or to the housebound, and care for the dying.
You can seek pastoral care for yourself or those in need by speaking to a member of clergy after any service, or by contacting them - click here for a Who’s Who.
Through the work of the Trinity Centre, we seek to make Christ present to the wider community through further forms of pastoral care. The Community Larder is a resource for times of food poverty. The Wellbeing Hub runs numberous activities and groups. There are also funds and advice available for other diverse fundamental needs.
Particular forms of special pastoral care can also be sought from priests. A priest can anoint with holy oil for severe physical or mental illness or at the end of life. If someone needs to unburden their conscience, a priest can also hear a confession and offer reconciliation to God through the promise of God’s forgiveness.
