Pastoral Support

He shall lead his flock like a shepherd. He shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.      Isaiah 40:11

At The Drive we have a “pastoral tree” structuring the support of all individuals. The whole church community is divided among a team of Pastoral Carers who visit and keep in touch regularly. Everyone, whether or not they are members, is allocated a pastoral visitor who will get to know them, with the aim of strengthening the ties of friendship and caring which bind us all together. They will be available in times of need to offer practical and prayerful support. We believe that pastoral support is at the centre of the Church’s life and ministry. The pastoral team works alongside the minister to enhance the wellbeing of the congregation.
