Pastoral Care and Prayer Ministry

Pastoral Care is the concern of all, and a lot is done quietly,
without fuss, day by day, week by week, but:

  • If you haven’t seen someone in church for a few weeks, do you:                                                                
    • leave it
    • mention it to someone
    • make contact?
  • If you, or someone close to you, would benefit from
    the prayers of others in the fellowship, do you:           
    • keep it to yourself
    • ask for prayer on Sunday morning
    • contact the prayer chain with your request
    • not want to bother others with ‘my problems’?
  • If you, or another church member past or present,
    would like someone from church to pay a visit, do you
    • not want to bother anyone
    • contact the pastoral care co-ordinator
    • only want the vicar?

Prayer ministry is as much about listening as it is about praying;
there’s a particular power in praying together and being prayed for.
This ministry is confidential.
On Sundays at St Peter’s, team members wear a badge,
so that you know who they are.

At other times you can contact

  • Revd Colin Honour, or
  • Sylvia Read (who co-ordinates the Prayer Chain), or
  • a churchwarden.

To arrange a visit, contact

  • Linda Cooper, or
  • a church warden.
