The Pastoral Care Team helps us to look after all the people who live in our parish area as well as the members of the congregation. This includes support for the Christ in Action Foodbank which is based at Monkton and Prestwick North Church, and a monthly service of prayer for healing on the third Sunday of the month. Pastoral Support is also made available through the weekly Vestry Hour held by the Minister on Wednesday evenings from 6.00pm to 7.15pm.
Providing transport to the Sunday services is also a function of the team, as well as ensuring that the flowers which have enhanced worship are delivered to those sick or housebound. The team are also helping us take forward our aim to be a Dementia Friendly church.
Sunday morning services are recorded and CD’s are distributed to a number of housebound folk. A Circle of Care team undertakes visits to people in nursing homes, as well as those at home who are no longer able to get out.
