Growing a Caring Church : Practical Guidelines for Pastoral Care Paperback
Earthed in Jesus' command that as his disciples we are to love one another, this book speaks to all of us-from church pastors to those attending-but, specifically to home group leaders and members.
It shows how home groups can be places where people's pain and difficulties are noticed, and first steps taken to help.
Wendy Billington offers valuable insights coupled with realistic and practical advice, drawing on her years of pastoral work in the community and in the local church, as well as on her personal experiences of loss and cancer. Wendy coordinates the pastoral care programme at St Nicholas Church, Sevenoaks, which includes providing training in pastoral skills, listening to people's concern, bereavement care, marriage enrichment and supporting cancer sufferers and their families.
She is a director of the Sevenoaks Christian Counselling Service.
