Pastoral Care Team
There is a benefice pastoral care team who work across our church and village communities visiting individuals in their home offering support, companionship, a listening ear and simple practical help when needed.
We particularly focus on short term support in response to bereavement, illness, recuperation, crisis care, mental illness and supporting those who are housebound and isolated across the villages of Blackbrook, Farnah Green, Hazelwood, Holbrook, Makeney, Milford, Shottle, Shottlegate.
The team is led by Revd Nicky Fenton, the vicar of Hazelwood, Holbrook, Milford and Shottle and consists of ten church members all of whom have completed DBS checks and the National Church C1 safeguarding course along with a basic introduction to pastoral care training session.
If you would like a visit or some help and support from the team, please contact the team leader and co-ordinator, our vicar Nicky.
If you know someone who would value a little friendship, companionship, support and a listening ear for whatever reason, please encourage them to contact Nicky who will match them up with an appropriate carer. We cannot act without the consent of the person to be visited.
