An intregal part of
our Christian life is engaging with and serving tour wider community.
CONNECTING WITH GOD ENGAGING WITH ALL
We will work hard to be a vital and vibrant Christian presence
in our community.
We will be generous in our sharing and engaged with our town, with hearts open to
the love of Christ, minds open
to the challenge of change,
and buildings that are open
and welcoming to all.
Father of all, we give you thanks and praise that, when we were still far off, you met us in
Son and brought us home.
Dying and living, he declared your love, gave us grace and opened the gate of glory.
May we who share Christ's body live his risen life; we who drink
his cup bring life to others;
we whom the Spirit lights give light to the world.
Keep us firm in the hope you have set before us so we and
all your children shall be free
and the whole earth live to praise your name, through
Christ our Lord.
The purpose of the Pastoral Group is to maintain a good practice of “pastoral care” to our regular church members and beyond. People particularly appreciate the group’s involvement at the “All Souls” service when those who have had funerals at
St Cuthbert’s were invited.
All the members of the group attended a training session on “Creating a Safe Space” provided by the Diocese. Four members also attended 4 weekly sessions on “Listening Skills” provided by the Diocese with a follow up Sessions.
Dolphin View is a care home situated in Amble. Here, at St Cuthbert's, we visit the home on a regular basis to conduct a small communion service for all those wishing to attend. The choir also attend at the Easter, Summer and Christmas services.
