Pastoral Ministry

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

2 Corinthians 1:3-4

About us

Our team is here to identify and respond to the general pastoral needs of the parish. We have strong links with the Prayer Ministry team.

The Pastoral Ministry team is led by Portia Chorlton. The Pastoral Deputy and Co-ordinator is David Troughton. All of our volunteers are DBS-checked.

What we do

We can offer both practical and emotional pastoral support. Our support teams provide help with:

  • Pastoral visiting
  • Bereavement
  • Home and hospital Communion
  • Practical needs (offering help with small DIY jobs, gardening, etc.)
  • Transport needs (offering transport to church services)

We can also help with signposting to other support available, although please note that Holy Trinity Church is not responsible for any advice given by these groups. A list of support groups is available here.
