Pastoral care 

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”

Matthew 11.28-29

Wanstead Parish has a team of pastoral visitors, who are able to visit those who are isolated, convalescent or experiencing any kind of ongoing difficulty. The visitors are not trained counsellors, but offer neighbourly support mainly through listening, prayer and befriending, in the name of the church.

Please contact Celia Heath (07718 942917) who co-ordinates both the visitors and our parish prayer list, if you know anyone who might benefit from support of this kind.

The parish also offers regular services of prayer, anointing and healing at Christ Church on Sunday evenings throughout the year. Please see our Calendar and Services Times for more details.
