As the body of Christ we are urged to care for one another and it is the role of the Pastoral Visiting Group to help facilitate that. In addition to the Vicar and Curate, the group is comprised of: David and Jean Butler, Gillian Gyenes, Christine Rees, Carol Cain, June Todd, June Lee, Tracy Perrett and Willoughby Jones.
As you may know, we have a Pastoral Visiting Group at St. John’s, which tries to look out for any in the congregation who may need visiting or other pastoral care. We also welcome newcomers Sunday by Sunday and try to integrate them more fully into the life of the Church, if they so wish. We appreciate that people live very busy lives and may not be able to attend regularly, but it would be helpful if you have any pastoral concerns for others or yourself, to let us know. We send pastoral cards on special occasions, happy or sad, but of course, we have to know about these in order to do so. The members of the group are:
Lisa Cornwell (Vicar); David Ramsbottom (Associate Priest); Gillian Gyenes (LLM and Children and Young People/ Safeguarding); Willoughby Jones (8am); David Butler (Administrator/ 10am); Jean Butler (Minus Fives/10am); Carol Cain (10am); June Todd (10am) Christine Rees (MU); Ann Cottrell ( MU cards/10am)
You are welcome to speak to any of us or to the person on duty at the Welcome Table each week.
