Pastoral Care

Individuals at St Michael's provide pastoral care, supporting one another, through prayer and friendship.

There is a team of lay people who assist the ordained clergy in taking the sacrament to anyone who is housebound.

St Michael's also offers a Healing ministry in the form of laying on of hands and anointng during regular church services, and Extended Healing sessions each month.

Prayer Chain and Prayer with Laying on of Hands

A number of people pray at home for St Michael’s and for specific needs or thanksgivings that people may have.  If you would like to be part of this network or have a prayer request, use this form, or contact the Parish Office.

If anyone would like prayer with laying on of hands, either for themselves or for someone else, this ministry is available after church services.  Please ask a member of the healing team, whose names are on the ‘Healing Board’, or any of the clergy, or contact the Parish Office.

Specific Needs

Anyone who may need long-term professional or spiritual help can be guided by the clergy in finding suitable resources.
