Pastoral Assistants at St Nicolas Parish Church Cranleigh

The team of Pastoral Assistants have been trained and licensed by Guildford Diocese to work in the parish to help lighten the load of

the clergy and to support anyone with a heavy heart. Any of the following situations may benefit from the training and experience of a

Pastoral Assistant who act in confidence with the clergy.


Baptism Visits:

A Pastoral Assistant leads a team of "Baptism Visitors" who give support and encouragement to the parents before and following the Christening, until the child reaches Sunday Club age.


Hospital Visiting and Care For The Elderly:

Many who are sick or lonely known to the Pastoral Assistants receive visits in hospital or at home to brighten their lives a little.


Bereavement Visiting:

Pastoral Assistants have had specific training on the importance of "Just Listening".  Many who are recently bereaved find support

in a casual visit by someone with true empathy.


Other Situations:

Pastoral Assistants offer a sympathetic ear and will advise on the appropriate resources available when required.
