The Methodist tradition of friendly contact and support provided by our pastoral system has always been valued by Trinity members. We have a system that runs with a combination of paid staff and visitors, and our aim is to give prayer and practical support and care to our congregation.
We have a Pastoral Team, which consists of two part-time Pastoral Workers, Allison Jackson and Shirley Turner. They are supported by a team of about 40 Pastoral Visitors, who each look after a group of people.The contribution of Pastoral Visitors is especially valuable in a Church where members are drawn from a wide area. With constant movement of members and changing circumstances, this support network is vital. Pastoral visiting can be done in many different ways, but it offers friendship, prayer, encouragement in faith, and support in times of need. The needs and circumstances of our congregation change, and we try to give appropriate care. This includes home as well as hospital and residential care visits.
When people move away or are no longer in contact, we invite them to become a Friend of Trinity. This allows Trinity to keep in touch, providing news and information, which enables them to maintain links with the Church.
The Church offers pastoral support to its own members, but also offers specialist support (e.g. for bereavement). If you would like to speak to someone about baptisms, marriages or funerals, please contact the email@example.com
Please contact a member of the Pastoral Team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need support.
We sometimes advertise courses here, or in the corridor at Trinity Woking.
