Session 1: Study Day


By the end of this session you should be able to: 

  • Identify some ideas as to what distinguishes care as Christian

  • Use a number of Bible passages to reflect on pastoral care as creative and relational

  • Consider the extent to which pastoral care is part of God’s mission

  • Understand and outline the history of pastoral care in the church



Blessed are you Lord our God,

for you come to us and seek to make your home in us.

As we study now,

let our eyes and our ears be open to you

let our hearts find their rest and their joy in you

that we may grow in grace and live to your glory.

Blessed are you, Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer.

What did you find most helpful about this session?


Blessed are you, Lord our God, all things come from you:

from you come our life, this world and all that we have and are.

Help us to love one another as you have loved us.

Blessed are you, Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer.
