The cathedral has a pastoral care team of people who have special empathy with anyone going through difficult periods in their life or facing challenges because of illness or bereavement.

People do not have to be on the cathedral roll to access this service and confidentiality is seen as an important and essential component of this work.

Visits are not restricted to homes or hospital. Some people prefer to meet at one of the rooms available at the cathedral or off site, such as sitting by the sea and chatting over a cup of coffee.

“Pastoral care is to love people - and compassion and empathy are key ingredients”

For pastoral assistance phone our church office during normal working hours on 06 758 3111, or call in and ask to speak to one of our team members.
