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.

If you know anyone who might benefit from support of this kind, please contact one of our clergy for both the visitors and our parish prayer list.
