Building a diverse church
serving the communities of London

Pastoral Care

At King's we love and care about people. Prayer on Sundays and being part of a group are normally the first places people access care.

We encourage:

  • Healthy responsibility – encouraging people, as best they can, to take responsibility for their own lives
  • One-anothering – Recognising we need to support each other
  • Prayer – Believing situations can be transformed when we pray in the power of the Holy Spirit
  • Encouragement – Directing people to Biblical truth, relevant resources and referrals that will help them

How do I get help?

Get connected

Firstly, we encourage you to get connected at King's and to share your needs with the group leader of the ministry in which you volunteer.

Prayer Team

The Prayer Team is also available to pray with you at the end of Sunday meetings.

Pastoral Care Clinic

The Pastoral Care Clinic is a place you can meet with an experienced pastoral volunteer who will listen and pray with you. This is at the Catford site on the first Monday of the month - appointments are available at 7.15pm or 8.15pm via the church office - get in touch:
pastoral@kingschurchlondon.org

Pastoral Groups

We run a number of groups on specific topics. These vary each term and include:

  • Freedom in Christ - A discipleship group with an emphasis on dealing with past issues and truth to strengthen you for the future. This includes a prayer Saturday.
  • Restored Lives - Six sessions for those who have gone through relationship breakdown.
  • Relationship Matters - A one-day seminar to help couples who are dating, engaged or living together to build a strong relationship based on Biblical foundations.
  • The Marriage Course - Designed to help any married couple strengthen their relationship, this series of eight sessions and one Saturday mornming is held at our Catford site.

We are not able to offer counselling but can suggest agencies for specialist help.

Who is on the Pastoral Care Team?

On each site there are great volunteers who, together with the Site Leader and other pastoral staff, coordinate pastoral care locally. They are supported by our King's Pastoral Care Team.
