Care Rings

We had a lovely tea at the Rectory on Palm Sunday, with our Care Ring Coordinators and Parish Visitors, to help get our new Care Rings Pastoral Care Scheme started for St Mary’s Fordingbridge & St Giles, Godshill. We know how important pastoral care is in our communities, and there’s a lot of of care already happening; we would like that to be extended to everyone in our congregations. Our framework for pastoral care in Fordingbridge & Godshill is as follows: if you are a regular member of our congregations at Fordingbridge or Godshill, you will be part of a small Care Ring, with a Care Ring Coordinator. The Care Ring Co-ordinator’s role is to keep an eye on those in their groups. They will let the Clergy and Parish Visitors know if anyone is known to be sick, hospitalised or missing from church for some time. In the coming month, your Care Ring Co-ordinator will make contact with you, and give you a small book of prayers and a letter explaining Care Rings. If you have any questions, or haven’t found your Care Ring Co-ordinator by the end of the month, please speak to one of the ministry.
