We Care

Pastoral GraphicWhat does Pastoral Care mean at Christchurch?

As Christians we want to show the love of God by caring for one another.  We are a warm, friendly church and there is much support, love and care expressed behind the scenes in a spontaneous and informal way.

To ensure all are included, and to help us in such a large church, we also have a more structured system of Pastoral Care. This happens through one or more of the following:

  • The nominated person within House Groups and other groups to which members belong.
  • Visiting and taking out our monthly newsletter Wider Horizons to the housebound and those in Care Homes.
  • A welcoming person in the Christchurch Cafe on three mornings during the week.
  • A CD ministry where recordings of Sunday services are taken out to the housebound.
  • Monthly Home Communion for the housebound and those in Care Homes.
  • Welcoming teams who look out for and welcome newcomers on Sunday mornings.
  • A pastoral team who oversee the work and do extra visiting as needed, such as illness, hospital stay, bereavement.
