The course covers a wide breadth of pastoral care. It explains the theories of bereavement and listening; along with best practice and the application of skills. .
Once trained, Pastoral Assistants, commissioned by the Bishop, minister in their local benefice. The role is specific to each context, formed to meet local needs which might include being part of a pastoral visiting team, bereavement support, baptism preparation and more. Effective and flourishing individuals and teams can really add value to the ministry within a parish/benefice.
The course has 10 sessions.
