We love to encourage members of our church to join a small group, because this is one of the places we can walk alongside and support each other day to day. We hope our small groups are safe places where members are able to share some of the struggles of life, as well as praying that God would intervene also. Find our more about our small groups here.
We have a team of volunteers who love to visit those who, for one reason or another, would appreciate a regular visitor. John and Chris, along with others in the congregation, also visit those who are ill or in need of other support. Contact them, as above, to arrange a visit.
Each week, at our morning and evening services, we pray for the families and friends of those who have recently been bereaved. We want to support people as they go through, often, some of the most difficult periods in their lives. Ministers visit families before funerals and try to visit again following a funeral, but will do what they can to ensure families have the support they need. Contact John or Chris for more information.
John and Chris, as well as a couple of other licensed members of the congregation, bring communion to those who, due to illness, are unable to leave the house every Christmas and Easter, and will do so at any other time if requested. We believe that we can meet with God in a special way in communion and we want to enable that encounter where we can.
Sometimes we need support that goes deeper than regular pastoral care. We have people who are able to provide more in depth pastoral care and have links with a local Christian counselling service to whom we occasionally refer people if we feel this could be beneficial. Speak to John Coyne to find out more about this.
As a church, we believe in the power of the Holy Spirit to help heal, restore and free us into the people God made us to be. We have prayer ministry available at both our morning and evening Sunday services, where two members of the congregation, who have received training in prayer ministry, will pray with you about whatever is on your heart at the time.
