The Pastoral Care Team seeks to express the love of Christ in practical ways within the Church.
We hope to see the Crossroads community draw together as a family, growing in sensitivity and generosity so that everyone feels able to find support or to help meet another’s need.
The team meets monthly to pray for and coordinate response to known practical needs within the Crossroads community, to give encouragement to those in difficulty, express sympathy to those suffering losses, and celebrate with those rejoicing. We support families with meals, transport or childcare as required. We also visit those who are ill, isolated or in hospital.
We attempt to respond to short-term practical needs, using local resources as available, whilst recognizing the lack of home networks among the expat community. Through these we would hope to communicate God's love to our church family.
