St John’s Church Ainsdale Care Group


Our CARE Group started in 2002 with the purpose of bringing together a group of ordinary members of the congregation who could assist the clergy in the pastoral work by visiting people in the parish of all ages and in any kind of need.

Members of the Care Group visit sick people at home and in hospital,  take communion to the housebound and people in nursing homes, and arrange and take part in events such as a Hot Cross Bun tea before Easter and a film show of Carousel. 

We speak to people by telephone if someone wants to talk but does not want a face to face visit.

We also have a prayer circle where members can contact one another if people approach them with prayer requests,  so many people are praying for those in need.

Members of the Care group have taken part in training for Dementia Awareness and Bereavement support and have completed safeguarding training.


If you would like to have a visit for yourself or someone you know who is in need then please contact Heather Griffiths on 01704 579821
