“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” – Matt 11:28-30

What is Pastoral Care?

Pastoral Care is caring for people in such a way that they realise who they are in Christ. Pastoral Care involves development and brings order and unity into people’s lives. Pastoral Care brings others to maturity through love and support in the highs and lows of life. Pastoral Care helps create a healthy home where people can flourish and where people are becoming all they can be with God’s help. While pastorally caring for people we do not impose our direction, rather we aim to understand the unique needs that people have, and help them take steps towards their fullest life in Christ.

The Importance of Self-Care

During this season, it is important to look after your wellbeing, physically and spiritually. We have included some easy ways to practice self-care and maintain healthy wellbeing.
