We are all aware that there is often a gap between the emotional and relational freedom that the Bible says is there for Christians and our current experience. Many of us carry hindrances from the past which can shape our sense of worth, identity, purpose and security. Lies take their toll on minds and emotions. Demonic forces bind and hinder. Life controlling habits continue to ensnare. Shame isolates and undermines healthy relationships. Rejection builds defensive walls. Instead of the freedom to enjoy our relationship with God and others, there can be a whole host of symptoms that point us to the ‘yet-to-be-experienced’ life that Jesus brings.
The Pastoral Support Team exists to support people while they work at overcoming those hindrances and enjoy the life that Jesus has made possible for them.
The Pastoral Support Team is made up of men and women who have trained with the Pastoral Care Academy and is overseen by Irene Brooks, an accredited counsellor with many years’ experience. The team offers biblical counsel, encouragement, prayer, practical solutions and helpful tools. After four to six sessions there would be a review and a choice to continue if needed and agreeable for all concerned.
