Pastoral Care and Support

Caring pastorally for people is an important part of the life of St Alban’s Church.  
As a church, we believe that everyone is within the love of God.

We aim to provide loving and practical pastoral care for every member of our church family
and across our community.

At times we all encounter struggles in life or have to face some crisis that is difficult to cope with. 
If you are facing one of these times and would like someone to talk to about it then please contact either Roy Buchanan (01892 750791) or Brian Gill (01892 750266). 
You can rest assured that your conversation with Roy or Brian will be handled with sensitivity and in total confidence.

 NB.  Please do say if you would prefer to have your conversation with one of our ladies. 
            Roy or Brian can arrange that for you.
