Love in Action began a few years ago when a couple of members of the church family were in specific need. Members of the congregation asked what they could do to help. What developed were the seeds of Love in Action: lifts to hospital, meals, visits, practical and emotional support. Since then Love in Action has grown into a ministry which supports those from the church and those in the community around. 
 

What is Love in Action?

 

Supporting people both practically and pastorally. 


On the practical side, you might find a member of the Love in Action team delivering meals to a family or individual, or giving someone a lift to a hospital appointment. Or you might find a member of the team taking a bunch of flowers round to someone who has just lost a loved one or simply to show that we care about and love them. Sometimes you may see a member of the team taking a bag of food to someone in need.

How can I help?


Most of the time, the work that goes on with Love in Action is behind the scenes. Yet it is a vital work we do. Practical help is a really important way we as Christians can show someone else that God loves them and that we care about them.

On other occasions, the work that Love in Action do is more about ongoing pastoral support.


In a big church, this is particularly important because it is easy to miss people and not know that they are in need. We rely on members of the congregation letting us know that there is a need, so if you know someone who could do a meal or two being brought round, let us know face to face or by email/phone. Or, if you want to nominate someone for support or alternatively, you may be feeling God is calling you to be a part of this ministry do not hesitate to get in touch and find you how you might be able to do that.  If you are concerned about someone you can fill in a card and put it in the box at the back of church. Please write YOUR name and contact and we will be in touch as soon as we can.

 

Pastoral Visiting Team


As well as members of the Love in Action team being there to support those in need, we have a Pastoral Visiting Team who will spend a period of time visiting those who are struggling for whatever reason.  A member of the team will do an initial visit and will then suggest a member of the team to visit you. If you would value this, please contact Eleanor Jeans.
