Pastoral Care/Rites

Giving Care, Giving Counsel

Our Objective:

Pastoral care broadly encompasses any care and concern we render in the context of the church, where God’s flock (people), in our frail and fallen humanity (brokenness and woundedness), are shepherded and guided towards wholeness and spiritual maturity.

The Bible Church also seeks to develop a holistic, co-ordinated and visible approach to pastoral care for the community in the light of the church’s mission. Specifically, we focus on 3 levels of care: General care, specific care and professional care. Our hope and desire are:

  • To encourage the practice of every member care and concern for one another, particularly through the Care Groups and in general, through the church (general care).
  • To actively recruit and equip lay people-helpers for specific care situations such as illnesses, hospital and home-bound visitations, grief and bereavement, anxiety and depression, and other counselling issues (specific care).
  • To make referrals and work alongside other professional care and counselling agencies for issues and problems that are of a mental (psychiatric) and bio-chemical nature (professional care).
