In response to the pandemic, our Stephen Ministry wants to be a refuge and source of strength for the people of St Paul. We would like to suggest a new way of using Stephen Ministry called “Caring Ministry” to lift up and support our members. This will allow us to respond quickly to the needs of our brothers and sisters.
Stephen Ministers would provide three types of service:
If members would like a daily phone call to chat and socialize, we will match them with a Stephen Minister.
If members want to be prayed for or with, Stephen Ministers would be ready to kneel on your behalf. This can be done together over the phone, or they can be held in prayer by the Stephen Minister, and hopefully knowing you are being held in prayer will provide you with peace and comfort.
If members would like some spiritual guidance, Stephen Ministers could assist with ideas for creating a sacred space and making a ritual for private spiritual practice.
If you want any of these services, please let us know, either via email or by phone:
Let us walk together with you during this trying time. Remember, you do not walk alone.
Sarah Tees on behalf of Stephen Ministry
