Pastoral Contact Team

Holy Trinity Church is a large church. The aim of the Pastoral Contact Team is to make sure that the Leadership team maintains contact with everyone in the church and that no one in the congregation is overlooked.

There are thirty-eight members of the Pastoral Contact Team. Each member of the team is linked with a small number of people from the congregation and they maintain contact with the Team Co-ordinator and Associate Vicar.

The team members ‘look out’ for the people they link with so that we don’t miss anyone if, for example, they are unwell. The team members might give members of the congregation a call to see how they are and may let the Leadership Team know if they need a visit. The team do not carry out all the pastoral visiting but keep the Leadership Team informed.

People new to the church are linked in with a member of the team after they have attended a welcome evening unless they express a preference to opt out of the scheme.
