Church & Community

Pastoral Care Team

We are currently developing a new pastoral care network for the parish. This will be overseen by a team reporting to the PCC. This group oversees and assesses the quality of care invested in our parish (and beyond).

The key areas of care are:

Sick Communion

Three of our lay folk are licensed to administer Holy Communion for the sick although the whole church, when it gathers together for the Eucharist and when it is dismissed into the world, seeks to provide care for the sick.

Residential/nursing homes

There are six homes in our parish which cater for a varying degree of care:
Ritchie Court
Greengates
Elizabeth Nuffield House
Charles Ponsonby House
Parmoor Court
Diamond Court

Hospital visiting

There are no hospitals within our parish boundary but most of our parishioners will use:
John Radcliffe
Churchill
Nuffield (orthopaedic)
Warnford (mental health, residential)
Littlemore (mental health, day)
St Luke (private)
Manor (private)

Home visiting

Those who are in need of care in their residential homes will vary considerably. We are not just concerned with the elderly here but all who are subjected to being housebound through different reasons.

Transport provision

We are currently reviewing our transport provision needs in order to encourage more people to come to the church and to benefit from socialising and engaging with a range of Christians.

Caring for the bereaved/funerals

Baptisms & weddings
