Pastoral Care

       

 

Our Pastoral Care Team are available to provide love, prayer and support to all in the community.

A monthly service, with communion, is held at Holywell Nursing Home for the residents and staff.

In addition three specific Groups have been established:

Bereaved Friends Group
Alzheimer and Dementia Carers Group
Comfort Group

To find the date and venue for these groups please visit our Calendar

We are also promoting a link to the Somerset County Council website that is seeking carers' views

Bereaved Friends Group

This group provides love and fellowship for anyone who has lost a loved one – family member or close friend – whose passing has left a great gap in their lives. The group recognises that, whether the loss was recent or some time ago, it is a traumatic experience which can take time and support for recovery to begin. The group provides a safe environment where confidences can be shared in the knowledge they stay within the group.

To find out more please either come along to the next session or telephone the group coordinators

Alzheimer and Dementia Carers Group

This group provides love and fellowship for the carers of anyone living with the effects of some form of dementia.  The group provides an opportunity, within a safe environment, to share experiences or just have a break from the stresses of caring.  

 To find out more please either come along to the next session or telephone the group co-coordinators:

Comfort Group

The aim of this group is to provide support and friendship for anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer or any other serious illness. The group will create a comfortable atmosphere where you can relax and open your hearts to all your fears, concerns, hopes and opportunities with others experiencing similar experiences.

To find out more please either come along to the next session or telephone the group coordinators

These groups meet once a month, tea and cakes are always available. They are not intended to be professionally run sessions and the group will decide how it develops, be it with speakers or just informal chat. To find out the time and place please look on the Calendar.

Somerset County Council and Carers' Views

In July 2015 the Council has launched a scheme to canvass the views of carers so that a policy can be developed that meets carers' needs.  If you wish to contribuite to this please visit their website at:
