Pastoral Care

It is important to us that Pastoral Care support be available to our Gateway family. Please have a look at the options available to you below:

General Pastoral Care

This is a very important part of church life, and our heart’s desire is to be there for our church family. If there is something you would like to talk to someone about, if you are or a church family member you know of could use some support during a difficult circumstance; Please speak to someone at the pastoral care table in the foyer, or a member of the team in the auditorium (by the ‘pastoral care’ banner).

Alternatively, you can email or contact the church office on 0121-439-3390.

Emergency Phone: We have recently introduced a phone for weekend and ‘out of hours’ emergencies. Please call us on 07544-126874 – but please note; this is an emergency line only.

Crisis Care

This is our church safety net for members who are dealing with temporary critical situations. It includes hospital/home visitations, the Crisis Food Bank, and meal provision by the Food Patrol for those who are very ill (or added a new addition to their family).

Focus Groups

Having carefully observed the requests for help and prayer over the years; we have discovered that many of us face common battles. Our Focus Groups include ‘Breaking Free’, for emotional well being, ‘Whole’ for those facing health issues and ‘New Believers’ for those who are new to the faith or would like to find out more about the Christian life. Our Focus Groups give those facing similar situations a support network in each other, as well as an opportunity to meet regularly to study the word and pray about these issues.

Spiritual Guidance

For those needing that extra bit of help, we provide an opportunity for one-on-one guidance for a maximum of six sessions with one of our team.
