One Parish, Three Churches

St Marys – Pastoral

The Pastoral Visiting Team

We have a team of six Pastoral Care Visitors who have had some training and are all DBS checked.
The purpose of this team is to offer friendship, support and compassion to individuals in the community in the northern this part of Harpenden, on behalf of the Church and as an active part of the ministry of everyone in the church in seeking to ‘love our neighbours’.
We visit people who are housebound, frail or lonely, those who have other problems and made need support, whether at home, in residential care or hospital, temporarily or for the long-term. We also offer welcome to those who are new to the church family. We meet regularly together with the Associate Vicar to plan our visits, to pray and to encourage each other.
This is a quiet and confidential ministry and all our visitors are DBS checked.
If you know of someone who would appreciate a visit, please contact the team via the Associate Vicar or the Parish Office.
