Many core members are in their retirement years and, at times, can need support – especially when ill, in hospital or not able to travel to church activities.

To respond, church members share in offering practical help and visits including prayer and taking communion.

Pastoral care is led by one of the Leadership Team, Carol Pazdzierski. Her background in the NHS was one where she loved engaging with people and helping them. Seeing the need of church members, she felt prompted to offer help – only to find the leaders at the time had been praying about the need.

Though pastoral care is focused on church members, the aim is to extend it to anyone outside the membership who would appreciate a visit and help.
