St. Cuthbert’s and St. Aidian’s Pastoral Care Team


The Pastoral Care Team at our churches supports the congregation and parish with prayer, visits, arranging meetings and offering the healing ministry.

A regular prayer card is produced to encourage all to pray for up to date issues. A prayer chain consisting of about 10 people promises to pray daily for those in need.

Members of the PCT may visit the sick or take Holy Communion to those who are housebound.

A monthly healing ministry takes place in both churches, usually the 3rd Sunday in the month at St. Cuthbert’s and the 4th Sunday in the month at Stadia’s.

The PCT also support the clergy with baptism or funeral families, visiting them in their homes and supporting them at the services.






The PCT meet each month to review the prayer chain requests and discuss any issues that arise in the pastoral care provision in the parish and to plan any meetings etc. in the near future.

A yearly Remembrance Service is held, planned by the PCT, around All Souls’ Day in November.

If you need to pastoral care or would like to become part of the team who offer it then please contact The Rev. Canon David Power on 023 928 27071.
