Lay partoral assistants (LPA's) are trained and authorised to engage in pastoral ministry on behalf of the local church, working as part of a team of clergy and laity.

All LPAs focus on pastoral care, but an individual’s ministry varies according to their gifts and skills, and the local situation.

In all cases the ministry calls for a loving and compassionate heart, and a willingness to listen and support those in need.

 

LPAs may be involved in:

  • Welcoming newcomers to both our churches and our communities
  • Visiting families before and after baptism
  • Work with children and young people
  • Marriage preparation
  • Hospital visiting
  • Visiting people in their homes [not just the elderly and housebound]
  • Supporting the bereaved
  • Prayer and healing
  • Hospitality
  • Training and nurture, including confirmation preparation & home groups
  • Evangelism, including Alpha groups
  • Participating in worship

 

If you need to contact any of the LPA's please do so through the Church Office, telephone number 01380 723891.
