Christ Church is a caring church with everyone taking responsibility for looking out for people who may need an extra hello or a chat. The more formal ministry of pastoral care at Christ Church is supported and sustained in a variety of ways, however, there are also many informal acts of care and kindness which are quietly carried out by members of the congregation as they support one another in times of illness or other difficulty. This plays a significant, if often hidden part, of the pastoral life of the congregation.
Our eleven Church Contacts provide a link with the church through phone calls or e-mails and they will look out for their contacts in church or over coffee.
The Families' Networker supports households with children and young people under 16. There are also eight Pastoral Visitors who offer appropriate support, both short and longer term to people in their homes and in the community, and may include home communion.
