Pastoral Care@ Hope
Pastoral care can be a gift or it can be a learnt skill. As Christians we are all called to care for one another and some of us also do pastoral care in a group setting as group leaders. The pastoral lead at our church is Rob Lightowler, and he seeks to equip and empower pastoral care, in its many settings. He is particularly involved with supporting the leadership and those who are in a pastoral care role.
ROB LIGHTOWLER – PASTORAL CARE LEAD
We aim to create a community that will enable church members and those we are serving, to grow and thrive in experiencing well-being and wholeness in Christ (Shalom.)
Primarily the context where this happens is within our Life Groups. This falls within our overall vision to be ‘A growing community of people – from different backgrounds, stages of life and experiences, including the vulnerable – who are one family in Christ Jesus.‘
The Four Walls of Well-being
The concept of well-being encompasses the physical, mental and emotional, social, and spiritual dimensions of health, the four walls of of Well-Being. This concept is recognised by the World Health Organisation.

How to Join our Growing Community
We believe that being part of a local community is the first step in well-being. As we meet together we can support on another in physical, mental, social and emotional ways. We can help another in the joys and challenges of life. We can also sign post one another to specific help and resources that will address key needs.
