‘Pastoral Care is enabling people to know that they matter by showing love for a person and listening to them without condemning. It is a mutual sharing of life experience to encourage the Godly nature to emerge together with mutual feelings of belonging, worth, trust and expectancy.’
Roman Road IM Church is committed to Pastoral Care. We have a Pastoral Team of 5 members who are available each Sunday to talk and, if requested, pray with you. The Team may be identified by blue name badges and their pictures are in the foyer of the church.
The team will advise of other avenues of help and support if required e.g. alcohol and drug dependency, money management, prayer support etc.
