Mission Statement “...by seeking to serve those among whom we live and work”

The provision of pastoral care focuses on three main areas:

  1. immediate pastoral need such as illness; hospitalization; relationship difficulties etc.;
  2. care of the bereaved for the first year after the bereavement;
  3. on-going care of the housebound, the isolated and the elderly.

The organisation of pastoral care is shared by the Rector and the Pastoralia Team.
