Pastoral Care

Making It Easier > Processes > Pastoral Care

Love you neighbour as I have loved you. We are commanded, out of love, to look after the vulnerable in our communities

One of the strengths of the Church of England is our approach to caring for the needy and vulnerable. This is an important ministry. It is also a sensitive ministry. We have a great deal of potential to do harm if we don’t do it well.

These pages are designed to help us in our pastoral care of others.  They look at supporting those with a disability and older people and the range of opportunities for them to take a full part in the worship life of our parishes.

We also cover how to establish a pastoral care team and the work that these teams do in the parish.
