Pastoral Care

The Pastoral Care Committee meets monthly to review the needs of the congregation and to provide members with support and referral based on those needs. The committee also organizes events throughout the year to support a healthy and healing congregational life.

Parish Nurse

Parish Nursing is based on the belief that spiritual health is inextricably linked to physical, mental and social well-being. The church is where this relationship can be explored and supported within the life and work of the faith community.holding hands

Conflict Processing Circle

Bathurst has a conflict resolution process to create a safe community in which each person is treated with respect and dignity. We aim to foster a culture of openness and trust so that everyone feels welcome to bring forward a concern or to express a difference of opinion. It is also important that if someone appears to be treated badly and is not speaking up for themselves, that others speak up.
