Pastoral Assistants (PAs) are people trained to walk alongside others and keep them company when they are in need.
At St Andrew's we have a team of six licensed PAs who work closely with the Rector and the ministry team. They are mature, stable Christians with a certain amount of life experience. They are sensitive to life situations and gently allow God's love to flow.
The PAs each have particular areas of ministry including hospital visiting, marriage and families, children, bereavement, care of the elderly, pastoral liturgy and newcomers to church.
Please contact the Parish Office or any member of the Clergy team in the first instance.
