Now that I am licensed to the Waterside Churches I would like to begin making pastoral calls and visits to parishioners. Pastoral Care is something that is very close to my heart. Prior to Ordination I worked as a Pastoral Care Manager in a large secondary academy and worked with 230 students and their families. Both in ministry and in education, I saw the importance and impact that pro-active pastoral care made to the life of those I walked alongside. I am aware that social isolation, the loss of a loved one or loneliness can be difficult to deal with. The simple act of sharing a cup of tea (I am a typical Vicar and can never have too much tea!) and a chat can help. I am here to support and uphold all of our parishioners and the wider communities.
I always lay aside plenty of time in my diary for pastoral visiting/calls. I am happy to meet in neutral territory if you would prefer and we can share a walk or a coffee elsewhere of you would prefer.
If you would like a pastoral visit or call please do contact me on 01872 276357 or 07591 240 640. I would be more than happy to speak to you and to arrange a visit.
