Spiritual and pastoral care

Service Detail

Spiritual and pastoral care

Holistic support, your way

Pastoral care is about ‘being with’ people and sharing their journey

Our pastoral care workers offer spiritual support and conversation with our residents, clients, volunteers and staff. Sometimes that can just be a listening ear as we support the wellbeing of the whole person.

You don’t have to be religious or part of any faith – anyone is welcome to contact our pastoral care and chaplaincy team at Uniting.

Uniting considers the provision of pastoral care and chaplaincy services an essential component of our services.

Ministers and pastoral care visitors from the Uniting church, other Christian denominations or non-Christian faiths, or community cultural groups are welcome to visit our services.

We’re here for everyone. Life can have its ups and downs, and there will be times when you need a listening ear. Our Spiritual and Pastoral Care Team is here to listen and support you in both good and challenging times.

If you would like to chat, we’re only an email or phone call away.
