Pastoral Care

Prayer Activity

The church seeks to make prayer a regular and important part of its life. A regular zoom prayer meeting takes place at 7.30pm every Monday evening. Prayer is also a vital ingredient of the weekly home group meetings.

Prayer Ministry Team

We have a small, dedicated Prayer Ministry Team. Prayer ministry offers individuals the opportunity to be prayed for by trusted and authorised team embers. Those prayed for can be confident of being treated with sensitivity, respect and confidentiality. Any need, either for themselves or others, may be brought for prayer, with laying on of hands if permitted.

The team is available within or following Sunday or weekday Services. Prayer Ministry usually takes place in our dedicated prayer corner; however, arrangements can be made for more privacy if required. There may be other occasions when this ministry may be exercised, for example during specific healing services or special services of celebration and/or commemoration.

As well as the Prayer Ministry Team, prayer requests are received by either our dedicated prayer page on the church website, by email or verbally. The request is then circulated to a group from the congregation who faithfully pray for those in need. Requests and testimonies are shared with the group and follow the same requirements of confidentiality as for the Prayer Ministry Team.

Women’s Fellowship

This has a membership of mainly elderly but fairly active ladies and meets twice a month. The meetings are generally social in nature with talks, demonstrations or discussions and commencing with a hymn.


One of our Readers and another member of the congregation visits the Care Home in Rowlands Castle regularly for pastoral care and occasionally to take Communion.

Relationship with other Churches

The other church in the parish is the Church-on-the-Green, a United Reformed Church. We have a good relationship with the Pastor. Joint events take place from time to time, particularly at Easter. We also have links with Churches Together in Havant. Church members take an active part in the production of the Havant Passion Play performances.

Floral displays

There is a very dedicated team of flower arrangers who use their skill to ensure that flowers are regularly displayed in church.  The church is specially decorated for Christmas and Harvest celebrations with multiple arrangements.

Baptism Preparation

There was a small team that met with the families of baptism candidates before the ceremony and then continued to provide pastoral care afterwards. Our last vicar didn’t use the team, but they are willing to continue this work if required.

Croissant Breakfast

One Sunday a month, we serve breakfast (tea/coffee/juice and freshly-cooked croissants) between the 8am and 10am services, giving the two congregations an opportunity to get together

Quiet Morning

A monthly quiet morning takes place on a Friday, followed by a shared picnic lunch.
