At St John’s Church we have a group of people who support the Vicar in visiting people who, through illness or practical reasons, find it difficult to get along to Church for worship but who still want to keep ‘in-touch’ with all that is going on at St John’s and receive practical support and help when they need it.
Each member of the Care Group visit a number of people on a fairly regular basis and some of them also take Communion to people who like to receive it. These visitors also provide an important link with the Church and can also inform the Vicar if they feel someone whom they visit requires particular pastoral care so that he too can visit when appropriate.
If this is something that you feel you would like to take advantage of please contact the Vicar, Graham, who will make the initial visit and then ensure that you are then supported by a member of the Care Group.
