Sometimes extra help is needed from our community, and on occasion professional help.
Most pastoral needs that arise can often easily be met by Lifegroups. Lifegroups are the key way we can love and support each other in a large church. People in Lifegroups share life and walk through the ups and downs together, supporting as needed. However, sometimes the problems are bigger than a Lifegroup can handle, or the person/ people needing help are not in a Lifegroup. In those situations, we have a pastoral care team on hand to help, with a number of people available depending on what kind of help is needed.
We have a number of resources and can offer practical help and we have a well-put-together list of professional people we value and trust that we can put you in touch with. We have different plans for different situations.
Throughout the year we run a variety of courses (eg marriage preparation, the Alpha marriage course, Toolbox) and various training courses (eg prayer ministry training).
If you have any pastoral concerns or queries, please contact reception at either City or Beach Campus and ask to speak to a member of the pastoral care team, or leave a message and one of the pastoral care team will contact you as soon as possible.
