Care & Teaching
Pastoral Care in all its various aspects is an important part of our Life at St James Morpeth. Indeed it is part of who we are, and we aim to extend the care and love of God in all that we do. Specific areas of care includes our visitation of the sick and those who are otherwise of limited mobility. Our clergy are available for discussion of various needs and where possible some assistance in managing the circumstances that confront people. Bereavement is another where the caring aspect of the Church's ministry rises to the fore.
We seek to exercise the care of Christ in all that we do. If you are aware of someone, or for yourself have some need, please do not hesitate to contact the parish ministry team.
Jesus began his earthly ministry as an itinerant rabbi, teaching in synagogues. It is therefore hardly surprising that teaching has been a fundamental part of the Church's work since the beginning.
The sunday sermon is an important part of the Teaching Ministry.
This ministry is also exercised through various study groups. youth activities, and SRE teaching in our local schools.
Historically the Church has been involved in wider aspects of Education than simply spiritual formation, and whilst today Government takes a more active role in education than it did in time past, the Church remains committed to any activity that helps people be the best possible people they can be in every sense of the word.
