This team is made up of volunteers who have undergone pastoral care training and made a commitment to serve the congregation. They continue to receive ongoing training, supported by the Minister, and work closely with the Minister throughout.

The role of this team is to support other New Unity members with a caring, listening presence. This support is usually short to medium term, to help through times of particular challenge. The team members will also try to provide information about further supportive services, if these are needed.

Testimonials from New Unity members who have been supported by the Pastoral Care Team

"Meeting with a member of the New Unity Pastoral Care Team (PCT) was exactly what I needed during a difficult time in my life. An empathetic listener, she didn't judge or give advice, and she didn't make assumptions. She created a safe space for me to share my sadness, shed some tears, and work through issues. I'm deeply grateful for her and for the New Unity Pastoral Care Team." 

"When I broke my arm, I realized I would be cut off from my usual activities, and staying at home – mostly alone - for several weeks. I decided to try to organize a minimum of one hour’s human contact a day. The Pastoral Care Team was brilliant, providing human contact when I really needed it. The negative experience of injury became a positive opportunity for deepening acquaintance. I felt particularly cheered and supported by the caring support I got from New Unity."
