Our Church Pastoral visitors perform an amazing job of offering care to all members of our Church and congregation. However, several have had to retire recently, and we are in URGENT need of more people to join our team. Each are allocated a group that they stay connected with, offering spiritual support in times of joy and sorrow. We work together as a team and training is provided on a regular basis. If you would like to find out more about the role, please speak to Irene Elliott or Peter Hughes. As with all the roles in our Church, Pastoral Visitors will now be safely recruited which will include the need to provide referees, have a DBS check and attend Safeguarding Training.
