PARISH VISITING MINISTRY
Pastoral care is central to our mission at St.John’s. A group of dedicated men and women reach out to those in our Parish who are in hospital, in care or unable to come to regular Sunday worship. We are able to take communion to those that request it. Some visits may be weekly or monthly in person or by phone chat.
As a group, we meet three or four times a year to share news of the community we serve, to receive added instruction and/or inspiration for continuing this important ministry.
If you would like to be part of this ministry or know of a need, please contact email@example.com
EDUCATION FOR MINISTRY
Education for Ministry is a program of theological education by extension for lay people. There are four years of study, but participants commit for one year at a time, meeting in small groups with a trained mentor. The program combines academic study with integrative components to help participants take what they learn about Scripture, church history, theology and ethics into their own lives and hearts, supporting them in living out a vibrant baptismal ministry in the world.
The Deanery group meets at St John’s on Tuesday evenings. For information speak to one of the Mentors: Anne Anchor or Debbie Jones-Akiyama. To contact the mentors, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
