St. Saviour’s has a Pastoral Worker/Parish Nurse, Madeleine Watts RGN
Health, wholeness and faith have long been promoted in churches, but in recent years there has been a distancing of health care and faith. Parish Nurses hope to help mobilise the “Church” to embrace more fully its healing function.
A Parish Nurse is a registered nurse who acknowledges the basic need for a relationship with Jesus Christ and has had some theological training. Parish Nurses come from many varied Christian denominations.
