Care For One Another

Everyone needs reassurance and support from time to time. Sometimes people don’t think they have the words, skills or tools to provide effective support that promotes a full and healthy life. If you feel that you need some training and resources in caring for others, we can help.



We offer a number of workshops, courses, seminars and conferences covering a range of topics based on some of the common issues people experience in life.


We can deliver these at a time and place to suit you, at no cost.

  • One Another Care – a foundation course that introduces pastoral health and care ministry as the starting point for your team’s journey
  • Becoming an Informed Friend – a course to help people provide effective 1:1 support and friendship as they journey alongside a person living with a chronic condition
  • Coaching for Healthy Living – a course that helps a friend encourage a person or family to lead a healthy lifestyle so that they can move forward with their lives
  • Prepared to Share – a course to help churches understand mental illness and how they can be warm and inclusive to those with a mental health disorder.
  • Sharing together – a course to help people become an informed friend to a person living with mental illness
