Abbotshall Pastoral Care Group

We are a team of enthusiastic, caring visitors, keeping an eye on very elderly, sometimes house-bound members of the Church. Taking note of individual instances of need – illness, accident, bereavement, as well as special celebratory events such as 90th/100th! birthdays, golden/diamond wedding anniversaries. Members involved in these situations know we are thinking of, and praying for them by the sending of cards and delivery of Church flowers.

One member of our group has a special remit to keep an eye on members who are now in residential care homes or nursing homes.

If you would like to discuss any pastoral care needs please contact the minister



Thought for the week

Prayer and thought for 28th June 2020

Saviour with your heart so tender,
Come to those who grieve this day,
Those who mourn the loss of loved ones,
Be with them, O Lord, we pray.
And for those who suffer illness,
Come with healing touch this day,
Those who sit and wait in anguish,
Be with them, O Lord, we pray.
Man of Sorrows, loving Saviour,
Come with peace to those this day,
All who grieve and fear and worry,
Be with them, O Lord, we pray.
