Pastoral Care

Material concerns of our church family

Pastoral Care’s purpose is to witness to the love of Christ and the
extension of His Kingdom by trying to help with the material well-being
of the St Stephen’s family. We in the Pastoral Care Ministry endeavour to put
into practice our vision for God’s work in our church.

Groceries, vouchers, and meals, are distributed to those who may be experiencing difficult times.  Assistance may include help with budgeting, legal advice, study matters and much more.

MEDICAL EQUIPMENT

We are able to loan out (on a short-term basis) a number of medical items such as; crutches, splints, loo seat raisers and wheelchairs to name but a few.

Griefshare

Bereavement Counselling

Regular courses run to help folk to journey through the loss of a loved one. Courses generally run for 13 weeks and involve a video, discussion, study and reflection. Each session is self-contained so there's no problem if you can't make every meeting.

Distribution

Collecting & Distributing

Stationery, books, Bibles, jam-type spreads, children’s clothes and all manner of household items, etc., are collected and distributed to church-affiliated groups or members of the congregation with special needs.

Funding

Self-funded Ministry

This ministry is self-funded through functions like the selling of pancakes, potjiekos, lunches, etc., as well as through the generosity of members of the congregation who feel led to make donations or sponsor a particular project. We have been so blessed and thank God for those who pray and support us so that we are able to assist where necessary.
