James 2:26 reminds us that we are not just to love and care for one another in theory and sentiment but also in word and deed.
The Care Ministry coordinators and carers work alongside church members, leaders and growth groups to facilitate practical care for one another, particularly those in need of chronic and crisis care in our church community.
Depending on available resources The Care Ministry may provide practical support, such as meals, transportation and shopping. It also provides emotional and spiritual support, including home and hospital visitation, Bible reading and prayer.
Are you or your family in need of care or support?
If you belong to a Growth Group:
Step 1: Share your situation with your Growth Group leader and group members. The group leader and members will endeavour to provide appropriate practical, emotional and spiritual support.
Step 2: If additional support would be helpful, your Growth Group leader will ask your permission to contact the community leader or The Care Ministry directly. With your consent, an appropriate minister may also be informed.
If you don’t belong to a Growth group:
Share your situation with someone at church with whom you have a supportive relationship, and/or contact The Care Ministry through Jan Smith in the church Office.
Contacting The Care Ministry:
