(A Stephen Ministry Program)

 

On the 1st & 3rd Thursday of the month from 7pm-9.15pm, our dedicated team of BeUpheld Pastoral Caregivers meet for Supervision sessions with our Senior Pastor.

 

Each member of our Pastoral Care Team have received over 50 hours of pastoral care training and receive regular ongoing Supervision Sessions. Our Pastoral Care Team are laypeople trained to provide one-to-one quality Christian care. They are not counsellors, but have a different focus in the kind of care they offer.

 

Our BeUpheld Team have a compassionate heart for those who are hurting. Each Caregiver typically has one care receiver at a time who they meet with once a week to listen, care, pray, encourage, and offer emotional and spiritual support.

 

This ministry is appropriate for people experiencing a whole range of crises’ including; grief, divorce, a difficult diagnosis, change & transition, hospitalization, physical rehabilitation, long-term care, chronic illness, terminal illness, job loss, spiritual crisis, or other life struggles.

Our BeUpheld team helps to deepen, expand, and extend the caregiving capacity of our church. As a result, our pastoral care team together with our Pastor, can provide ongoing care to more people.

 

If you or someone you know are in need of this care-giving ministry, or you are interested in becoming a Pastoral Caregiver in our church, please contact pastor@mccsydney.org for a referral.

MCC Sydney Men's Group (Currently On Hiatus)

 

A meeting for men and those who identify as men to come together to talk about life and spirituality.is a monthly discussion group for men to focus on a single powerful question and examine their lives and the impact they can make on the world. It's not a therapy group, nor a self help group, but it draws on the biblical principle that "as iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." The group is facilitated and is overseen by a professional, but the group is able to move the conversation from the starting point towards the specifics that arise from the experiences of the participants.

Every 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month 7pm-8.30pm.
