Pastoral care at EBC

The Pastoral Team aim to provide that extra level of support in difficult times.

Let each of you look not only to his own interests but also to the interests of others. Philippians 2v4

The team of 8 is led by Alison Hodges (Pastoral Deacon) and we work closely with our Minister Charles.

We support people in different ways depending on the situation. This may be practical help when the unexpected happens or offering friendship and support through phone calls and messaging.

We see this as an extra tier of care to enhance that given by families, friends and home groups.

We also try to help with finding professional services when necessary.

Most members of the team have received safeguarding training and DBS checks. Some have had further training to increase knowledge and awareness of issues such as dementia, mental health and abuse. All matters are treated confidentially unless we have specific permission to share a need.

Our gifts and abilities are varied but complementary to each other and we work together as a service to our God and our Church family.
