The purpose of the Team is to meet the pastoral needs of the members of the Congregation and Community.
We have divided it into three sub teams:
The Telephone Team provide a regular point of contact for those members who have requested it.
The Events Team organise various events throughout the year to allow elderly or housebound people to meet together to socialise and reminisce.
The Visiting Team visit people who have requested a home visit either in their own home or in a Residential Home.
The Pastoral Care Team is also a link to the Kirk Session for the Food.
Summer Tea was a successful event.
Entertainment by the Praise Band went down very well.
New style meal was enjoyed and the surroundings in the Coﬀee Bar were appreciated but it was accepted that we have reached the number that we are able to cope with in that area.
The Carol Tea may again this year be a Church wide event organised by the Pastoral Care Team with the Fellowship Team.
This will be decided in October.
Calls will begin in September as usual
Dorothy will discuss with Ken.
Our Church Phone Team was set up in 2011 after consultation with the Congregation about their preferred method of contact.
As a result we have 115 people who receive calls twice a year.
This serves the purpose of keeping in touch with members who might not otherwise have regular contact with the Church.
There are 15 people who make the calls and can provide information about Church activities,pass on any requests or generally have a catch up chat letting members know that they matter to us.
Some people who receive calls who come to Church were able to benefit from putting a face to the name and voice of their caller.
Sometimes they agreed just to chat when they met at Church
Other people who find it difficult to attend Church or who don’t come but want to remain members benefit from keeping a personal connection with their caller
