Women Pastoring Women
For many years I have been keen for us to employ a Women’s Pastor. Parish council has also been keen and investigated this. So far we have been unable to, so a number of our women and I met with Kara Hartley to investigate options. She suggested we accredit and appoint Godly, capable women who will make themselves available to talk, pray and read the Bible with women members of our church. They are not counsellors nor “professionals”, but they are sisters in Christ who we believe are available, wise and Godly for this roll.
The first line of Pastoral care teams. WPW will add an extra level of care. I am personally very very grateful to these women and all our members for the level of loving care that I see daily going on in this church. Those involved at this stage are Bev Derrett, Jean Robinson, Deanna King, Kerrie Clelland, Helen Ient, Jane Crew, Elizabeth Watson, Laura Burns, Brielle Buckley, Julia Harrison, Kristy Stalder and some others.
