Pastoral Care

hands holding coffeeAt times of distress and bereavement, personal contact and a listening ear can bring comfort. St Peter's Church offers help and support to people who are facing serious illness or dealing with grief, and we hope that no-one in our community should have to face these problems alone.

Everyone is welcome to contact us, even if you are not a regular churchgoer.


The clergy are always happy to undertake visits in the community. Please contact the Rector to arrange a convenient time for a visit.

In addition to visits by the clergy, St Peter’s also offers The Pastoral Care Network which is a group of people who have been trained to recognise and respond to need as it occurs, mainly by visiting and providing a listening ear. The network includes bereavement visitors who undertake home visits. The group meets regularly on the 3rd Monday of each month at 7:45pm in the Court House.

Bereavement support

There is also a regular Grief and Loss Support Group lunch to support those who have been bereaved either recently, or a few years ago. The lunch group meets at 12:30pm on the first Wednesday of the month, usually at the White Horse, Bourne End.
