Sometimes we need a bit of support in life. As well as the deal of care given in our communities by neighbours, friends and church members, the Pastoral Team is here to make sure no one gets missed out and to offer listening support on behalf of the local church.

If you are unwell, have recently been bereaved, would like communion in your home or are thinking of bringing your children for Baptism, a member of the Pastoral Team can visit at your request and discuss with you how we might be able to help. The Team also has regular confidential meetings where people can be prayed for and where members receive ongoing training and support.

If you would like a visit from someone on the Pastoral Team, or know someone who would appreciate a visit, please let us know.

The Pastoral Contact person for Kirby Misperton Benefice is Revd Jackie Cray (01653-669365)

The Pastoral Contact persons for Middleton Benefice are Revd Ailsa Beech and Revd Anne Wright (01751-472689).

If you would like to be a part of the Pastoral Team we would love to have you working with us. Full Training is provided by the Diocese of York Recognised Parish Assistants Course, and members of the Team participate in the different roles according to time and skills.
