Patoral Link

St. David’s Pastoral Link has evolved over many years, and its aim is to create a network of relationships so that no-one needs to be overlooked or lonely. It links the church with families and individuals in the parish and community by using people from the church, commissioned annually, who visit on a regular basis to distribute newsletters and invitations and offer fellowship and advice if requested - and so provide a tangible and caring link to the church. There are currently around 20 volunteers doing this work on a regular basis.

Most members of the congregation have chosen to be members of the scheme, and value the opportunities of talking with their visitor, including the sharing of joys, sorrows and concerns. If there are any problems the visitor may be able to help directly, or refer the matter to the most appropriate person.

The people visited vary extensively in their needs. Visitors generally only visit those who have requested to be part of the scheme and these visits provide a channel for Christian fellowship. Many of the visitors, however, undertake more numerous visits to their scheme families than those few which are necessary for distribution of newsletters/invitations to events.  We thank God for the ways in which our family link provides a channel for loving Christian fellowship, and we pray that we might be faithful in discharging our privileges and responsibilities to each other.

Special occasions and needs

Scheme members send out cards for special anniversaries and times of rejoicing, as well as times of illness, bereavement or other special needs.  Also a number of ‘Hospital Boxes’ are prepared and taken to members of the church family in hospital, and feed-back shows that these are greatly appreciated.

Church Family Gatherings

Members of the Pastoral Link scheme, together with all other members of the church and their families, are invited to participate in special events, in particular:

Pastoral Link visiting is currently coordinated by Sandra Allen and Stella Allwood.

Our events for the whole Church will be organised by Tara Gamble and Sarah Jacklin.

Our cards and gifts for the whole Church, for those who provide us with details of birthdays and anniversaries, will now be coordinated by Mary Smith.

If you are not yet a member of the Pastoral Link, and would like to become involved, please contact Sandra or Stella.
