Pastoral care of students

We would like students and young people who have just left home to further their education or work on the mainland, and who are linked to our congregation, to be aware of our continued pastoral care for them. We would appreciate if parents, or grandparents/guardians, could provide us with names and contact addresses so that we can make contact and let them all know of our continued prayers for them as they begin a new chapter in their lives.

 

We also wish any who are commencing courses locally every encouragement and God’s blessing as they follow their chosen career.

 

It would be appreciated if you could email the required information to the office at [email protected]outlook.com by Friday 30th September.
