Pastoral Care

Request for Prayer

Copy of_Praying_HandsLife can sometimes be very hard for us, perhaps the sadness of losing someone we love, divorce or separation, the depression of redundancy, or maybe just feeling very lonely.  We all have had our heartaches, and can sometimes find it comforting to have someone to talk to.  Perhaps, that's how you feel now and you would like to have a visit from someone from the Church who you could talk with and maybe pray with you.  Should this be the case then please make your request known using the Contact Us form.

If you have a great and urgent concern for a loved one, and would like prayer, we have a confidential 'Prayer Circle', whereby several people are contacted to pray for the situation.  You don't need to reveal all the details, but it can help if you provide us with a name and a brief reason for the prayer request then please do on this Prayer Request form.

Perhaps you would like us to arrange for a visit to your relative or friend from a Hospital Chaplain, this can be very comforting, both for the patient and for you, especially when your loved one is due to undergo an operation. If you would like us to organise this for you please us the contact Us form to make your wishes known. 

Whilst on your way to do your Saturday shopping, you might like to chat with a member of the Family of Churches ,'Healing on the Streets' team, in the Market Place on Saturday mornings from 10 am to  1 pm, they would be pleased to talk with you and pray for your peace and healing.

Offering Prayer

We would value your prayers for the world we live in, for our Town and for our churches.  If you would like to join with others in praying for the work of the Church in our town, then please use the contact form to send us your details and we will put you in touch with others who regularly meet to pray. 

Care for the Elderly

Holding HandsRepresentatives of our churches regularly take Holy Communion to Crown House, Giffords Court, and Wharf Court retirement homes and to the Brookside Nursing Home.

For those who prefer a quiet mid-week Communion Service why not try the service on a Wednesday morning at St.Michaels church and enjoy a cup of coffee and chat afterwards.  For up-to-date details of when the service is held, please look on the St. Michael's web pages.

There is a similar service at St. Andrews.

If you are finding it difficult to get about and would like someone to accompany you to one of our services, or to give you a lift, then please do let us know using the Contact Form

We believe our Senior Citizens have a lot to offer us, especially in the setting of a Home Group, where their wisdom is much appreciated. Home Groups are rather like 'Family get together's' where members of our churches get together to look at what the Bible has to say to us on particular topics, to pray together and some Groups also include some singing.  Most Groups also meet on occassions for a meal.  If you have never been part of a Home Group, why not give it a try.  For more details please see the information on Home Groups.

We also hold annual tea parties in St. Michaels and St. Andrews especially for the elderly.  Please watch out for more information in the What's New Section or ask us using the Contact Form

Bereavement Support

It is very hard to come to terms with losing a loved one - often it is good just to talk with someone who will listen and help you come to terms with your grief.  If you are still in contact with the minister who conducted the funeral, then speak with him and he will arrange for someone from the Church to visit you, or if you would prefer, please just ask us to arrange this for you by using the Contact Form.  

Alternatively you may wish to make contact with a Cruse Counsellor who specialises in assisting the bereaved. Click here for details of the Bath & District Cruse Office which covers our area.

Remembering a loved one, hearing their name called and lighting a candle in their memory can be very comforting in the context of a Memorial Service. This happens in May and November in St. Michaels Church.  All are welcome to this service, so do please come along.  All we ask is that you let us know the name of your loved one before the service, so that we can add their names to the list of those who are read out.
