The departure of the Pastoral Visiting co-ordinator to a new parish created an opportunity for Joan to step in. The church has many elderly and housebound members who love to have ‘official’ visits. People who go into hospital also expect a visit. So Joan is given a couple of days a week to make sure the visiting is done. She’s has started recruiting more people to join the team, making the visiting documents more businesslike, visiting with our Associate Minister, and, of course going out on her own to see people around the city.
Enough to says she’s getting quite a lot of praise for her efforts.
Barrie is trying to give up being the Team Leader for the Belfrey Groups because his work with Restore is taking up more and more time. So far he has been unsuccessful – but who knows what the new year may bring.
