Our congregation offers support and love to anyone who is needing it. There are teams of volunteers who provide meals when necessary, funeral teas, cottage services to visit the homebound, prayer and visits to those in need.
Anyone needing pastoral care, counselling or support can contact the Minister at the Office (013 753 3214) or, in emergency or after hours on 072 192 2880.
A few of our pastoral care ministries are as follows :
Each day people from our congregation visit those whom we know are sick in hospital and care for them and their families in whatever way they can. This ministry has touched so many lives and has seen many families through extremely difficult times. Often people from far-off places are in hospital in Nelspruit and the love they receive brings them closer to our Lord and eases their burden.
As the hospitals are not able to publish a list stating the denomination of patients, PLEASE NOTIFY THE OFFICE IF YOU ARE GOING TO HOSPITAL, and to which hospital, in order that we can care for you.
If your loved one is in hospital in another town or city, we will also contact the nearest Methodist Church and ask their hospital visitors to go and see them and pray for them. Please let the office know if you are ever in this situation and we will contact the nearest Church.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Phillipians 4:6
A band of ladies and men are permanently on call to pray for any prayer requests forwarded to them. They link telephonically and will pray for whatever situation, crisis or illness is being faced.
Di Hattingh is the coordinator and can be contacted through the Church Office. If you wish to join the prayer chain, please contact the Church Office.
All requests are treated confidentially. You are invited to allow this prayer circle to support you in your time of need, by contacting the Church Office 013 753 3214 or the Minister after-hours 072 192 2880.
