The aim is to give pastoral care and support to the entire fellowship, both members and non-members.The pastoral care of Histon Baptist Church functions through Church Friends who are overseen by the Pastor and the Pastoral Care Committee.
Church Friends are church members who ensure people feel that they belong and are cared for by occasional (at least monthly) contact. They encourage those in their care to participate in the life and witness of the Church and provide appropriate support at times of particular need.
The role of the Pastoral Care Committee is to ensure that the Church Friends are supported and encouraged and to keep the Pastor informed of specific needs.
All information received by the Church Friends and the Pastoral Care Committee will be treated in strictest confidence and with appropriate sensitivity.
