On the broadest scale, our pastoral care sits within God's mission to reconcile the world to himself. Our care for one another flows from the commitment to love one another because we ourselves are first loved by God. It's about being a reflection of God's desire to bring healing and wholeness. It's about developing quality relationships and enabling one another to recognise, follow and become more like Jesus.
How to access pastoral care
Our small groups are communities of care and support. Speaking to your small group leader is a primary access point. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07526392435 during office ours (this is a dedicated line for pastoral care). Any of the staff team can help you access appropriate care, and you can also speak directly to the pastoral team leaders, Heather Christmas and Lynn Tressider.

· Pastoral Care Listeners: if you need to talk through a worry, something God is nudging you about, a decision you need to make, something you are angry about or a relationship issue.
