Pastoral Care

Members of the congregation show caring and love to one another through various means both spiritual and practical – meals to the sick, rides to the hospital, help in the garden, phone calls, visits, food, and cards for the sick and homebound. Our Prayer Wheel for the sick and troubled operates by email and prayer vigils have been held for the seriously ill.

Some extend this ministering to others in the community through their involvement in community service organizations or through special tokens of ministry such as caroling at Christmas to shut-ins. Financial assistance may be provided to others to participate in activities such as retreats, through donations of the cost involved. A Caregivers Support Group, in collaboration with Gabriola United Church members, meets on a monthly basis in support of family members caring for the sick and dying.

Caregiver's Support Group

The Caregivers' Support Group meets on the first Wednesday of the month between 2 and 3pm at People for a Healthy Community (PHC) and is open to anyone in the community who is currently providing long-term care for a loved one. Getting together provides a time for sharing, listening, crying and laughing.

This is a joint venture offered by St Martin of Tours Anglican and Gabriola United churches.
