The Christian Fellowship and Pastoral Care Ministries
"to help all people grow in fellowship"
This group of fourteen Pastoral Care Visitors meets monthly with a speaker every other month. Six visitors are certified Level 1 Pastoral Visitors.
They use the knowledge gained as they continue to visit in area Retirement Homes and Nursing Homes.
Co-ordination with other Anglican churches in the community is being established to improve the level of Pastoral Care available.
They also work as advocates to implement visiting in Nursing Homes where there is no Chaplain present or visiting.
Twelve visitors were commissioned early in 2004 and this group continues to flourish.
