Church of the Trinity has a somewhat unique pastoral care system which was established 25 years (or so) ago. It involves everyone who wants to be involved and has been an effective way of getting to know one another and sharing news and concerns.
Essentially, everyone who opts in has a “carer” who is another member of the congregation. The relationship is established by mutual agreement through an intermediary who asks both “carer” and “caree” if they would like this person to be their carer / if they would like to be this person’s carer.

We’re currently doing a review of our Pastoral Care setup. It may change a little or a lot during the next 6 months or so. Stay tuned!
If you’re looking for the individual questionnaire, you’ll find it here. I can’t figure out how to get the email submission thingy to work in the link so…. PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE FORM TO YOUR DESKTOP, then open it from there and the SUBMIT BY EMAIL should work. Fingers crossed and all that other weird stuff vicars do.
