Spiritual Care

Please note that hospital, home and private communion visits are suspended currently due to Covid-19.

A Word on Spiritual Care

Spiritual care is that care which recognizes and responds to the needs of the human spirit when one is faced with trauma, ill health, sadness, or times of life transitions.  Often these are the times when we need extra care and support, when we are searching for deeper meaning, and a place to connect and express our feelings. A Pastor can be a good support at a time like this and can offer to: listen; pray with you; and offer rites or sacrament in this time of challenge. Pastor Fran is available to offer spiritual care in the following ways:

Hospital Visits:  Pastor Fran normally visits on Thursday afternoons or upon request.

Home Visits:  To request a visit or call from Pastor Fran or a member of the Caring Ministry Team, please phone the Messiah office.

Private Communion:  Holy Communion is usually shared within the context of the worshiping congregation. However, private communion can be arranged for those who are shut-in, living in care homes, or are unable to come to worship. This is available upon request.

Holy Baptism: Holy Baptism is usually shared within the context of the worshiping congregation and can be arranged by phoning Pastor Fran or the church office. The Pastor would like to meet with the family and the one to the baptized to share more information about the significance of this sacrament and to make arrangements for the date and plan details for the service.

Weddings: Pastor Fran is available to perform wedding ceremonies. Please contact her or the church office to reserve your date and set up meeting times. Usually, at least one meeting with the couple is required. In addition, and in recognition that marriage is a significant life change, the Pastor does require pre-marital counseling for most couples. She can offer this or it can be arranged with a third-party. To book the church, please contact the church office.

Funerals or Celebration of Life: Messiah has a Funeral Booklet which is a helpful guide for those either pre-planning their funeral service or those planning a funeral for a loved one who has passed.

Pastoral Support: Pastor Fran is available for care of the soul. If you are struggling with an issue and need a listening ear, we can set up a time to meet by phone or in person in the Pastor’s office.
