St James Support Crew
Pastoral Care Team
In last fortnights newsletter you would have read about the Pastoral Care program at St James. As a reminder just as before Pastoral Care at St James is all about supporting each other. Offering a helping hand, a meal, snacks for school lunches, groceries or transport when things are tough or overwhelming. It may be there is sickness in the family, a loss or the birth of a new baby. We don’t at all need to know the reasons why but we are here to help find an answer to such questions as: How am I going to get dinners done this week? What can I pop in the lunchboxes? or How will I get the kids to school?!
We are a team of 5 who will coordinate this care and support but we need your generous help.
We have created an email group where you can sign up and be on our email list. When we identify a need those within the group will be sent an email with what support is needed, but with personal details kept confidential. Often this may mean making a meal for a family but could also be other help such as providing transport for children or picking up some groceries.
Please note if you were involved in pastoral care at St James in previous years and would like to continue we do not have your details and you will need to sign up again.
Thank you very much to those generous people who have already signed up to offer their help and support. It is greatly appreciated!
If you can help please sign up at: [email protected]
Please also let one of us or Carmel and David know if you know of anyone in our community who could do with some care, support and prayers. We are very keen to continue to build up a community where we care and look out for each other.
Thank you for your help,
The St James Support Crew!
