Pastoral Care At Christ Church
The pastoral team and many others try to ensure
that members of Christ Church feel supported by
offering loving, Godly service in a number of ways.
Visits and encouragement:
To ensure that members feel part of the
fellowship our pastoral team will visit to talk about faith and your
spiritual journey, any aspect of church life, or to support you
through life’s ups and downs.
If you are ill or have to go into hospital please let us
know so that we can keep in touch with the hospital chaplain
and arrange a visit.
We have 2 groups which support the older person.
We also run a ‘holiday at home’ club during the summer.
: We can bring Holy Communion to your
home if you are unable to come to church for whatever reason,
or if your circumstances have changed and you can no
longer attend church.
We support those bereaved in
different ways, including through a monthly support group
which meets at Church.
: If you need a lift to church, the hospital, or to the
doctors please give the team a ring and we will do our best
to provide you with transport.
We are always looking for drivers so that we
can provide lifts to the GP, hospital, and sometimes lifts
to church. If you can offer occasional lifts or need
transport yourself do contact us.
Welcoming and nurturing
: It is the aim of the pastoral
team that no-one should be overlooked and so we
invite newcomers to regular welcome events -
in addition, once you have got to know us you may
want to work with the welcome team to greet,
welcome and help others settle in!
: We believe that God answers prayer,
so let us know if you have urgent issues of concern
which can be shared confidentially within our prayer network.
Through this we regularly send out 200 prayer requests
: Are you parenting alone?
Cheer invite you to join us for occasional lunches
on Sundays 1.00pm-2.45pm. (see website for dates)
Children and teenagers welcome.

: We have a freezer well stocked
with home cooked meals for when shopping and cooking
are difficult-perhaps after coming out of hospital,
or for families with a new baby. We can deliver meals to help out.
