Caring For Each Other

 

Are you in need of Care, Support or Prayer?

 

Prayer:  We have a Prayer Circle of people who will offer daily prayers.

Prayer Shawls are handcrafted by creative individuals in our congregation for people who are in need of comfort, warmth, and support.

Casserole Ministry:  Do you need help or know someone who needs help with a meal during a time of crisis? 

Visitors:  Would you like a visit or know someone who would like someone to visit them? 

Pastoral / Crisis Care:  If you are in a crisis situation due to a death in the family, an accident, hospitalization or a life-threatening illness, the first point of contact with our church is through our minister.  In the case of a death, primary care is offered by the minister. 

Longest Night Service:  In December we offer a prayer service for people who have suffered during the past year – eg. the death of a loved one, a serious illness, the break-up of a relationship.

 

Caring Cards:  We send caring cards to those who need to be thought of during a time of crisis.  Please let us know if someone you know would like one of these.

 

To receive care in any of these areas, please contact us using the contact information below.
