Pastoral Support

From time to time, due to illness or bereavement it’s good to have someone to talk with.

We have a team of lay people who are available to visit you at home or call you over the telephone, to see how you are and to pray with you.

The team also make home visits to bring you Holy Communion, especially for the housebound.


We also hold an afternoon tea once a month, bringing together older, single or bereaved people to meet together at the at St John’s Centre for a time of friendship and fun.


Janice Midwood co-ordinates the Pastoral Support Team. If you would like someone to call, please do get in touch with the office (details are at the bottom of page) or contact Janice on 01723 513819  or

Please note that due to the Covid situation both home visits and the ‘Pastoral Tea’ have been postponed for the foreseeable future.
