Pastoral Care

We believe that the best pastoral care happens through meaningful relationships and so our main pastoral care is accessed through our Life Groups.

Regular meeting with others in a smaller group is a really important aspect of life in a large church like St John's. It is through small groups that we give and receive the necessary emotional and spiritual support on a weekely basis not just at crisis points.

Please see our Life Groups page for further details.


The pastoral care team.

The team meets once a month, and is made up of a group of pastoral visitors & helpers. The pastoral care team seek to ensure the people do not fall through the net.  They endeavour to help when members have difficulties such as bereavement, illness, family difficulties, are housebound or lonely.  They assist the vicar by visiting and taking communion to the housebound.  Please contact the Church Office for further details.
