Pastoral visits

Pastoral Visitors

We have a team of people, specially trained in pastoral care, who are willing to give help and support, and visit locally those who are ill, housebound, lonely or bereaved. We can also arrange for Holy Communion to be brought to those who are unable get to church.

Residential Homes and Hartlepool Hospital

Many people living in residential homes would like to get to church, but are unable to because of ill-health. At a number of residential and nursing homes in the parish, groups from the congregation lead occasional short services of worship. In some cases, these are held jointly with friends from other town centre churches, in a group called ‘Praise Plus’. A group from Stranton helps regularly at Sunday afternoon services at Hartlepool Hospital.
