PASTORAL CARE

Visiting and Support: An important part of seniors’ ministry is our pastoral care. We visit people in their homes, in hospital and in care facilities. Our team can arrange transport for appointments and/or shopping etc. and also has a supply of home-cooked meals on hand for those in need.

 

“Walking with Confidence” on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 12:00pm in the church hall. Lunch is served at 1:00pm on the third Tuesday. These balance classes are run by a qualified physiotherapist.

 

Computer Education once every three months. Basic computer and mobile phone skills classes to assist older people as they navigate the world of technology.


“Train your Brain”  These are a series of memory training classes conducted by a qualified psychologist. The final one is on Thursday 16 June.

 

“The Big Day Out” A bus day trip takes place once a year to places of interest, and includes lunch along with morning and afternoon teas.
