Pastoral Care and Fellowship & Hospitality
Pastoral Team Leader: Christine Mechie
The Pastoral Team aim to offer support for those in need, for example the sick, those in hospital, the bereaved, those with new babies. This support may be practical, with prayer, through listening or whatever is required given the circumstances. We have a visiting team who visit members of the church who are no longer able to get to church on a regular basis, and those in our community who would benefit.
If you know of anyone who would benefit. Please let Christine or the office know.
Fellowship & Hospitality Team Leaders: Mary Marshall and Margaret Scott
