Toton Churches

Pastoral Care

Toton Churches believe that a healthy Christian community is one in which people know they are loved, visitors are welcome, and young and old alike are valued and feel safe. The care that we offer, both at times of crisis and in everyday life, is an active proclamation of God’s love in Christ and for our world.

There are various aspects of Toton Churches Pastoral Ministry, but all are interconnected.  All visitors have been DBS (formerly CRB) checked, and receive regular and ongoing training and support from their specific Co-ordinators.

Listening Matters... 

Listening Matters is available to anyone from the church & local community who feels they need time & space to share in confidence.  It is held at Toton Tesco Community Room (upstairs next to the cafe) every 1st and 3rd Tuesday 10.30am-12.30pm.    No appointment is necessary.

Monthly Lunch Club

A new venture for those who are isolated and looking for someone to talk to and somewhere to go. Why not join us for a simple lunch of homemade soup, roll and a pudding followed by board games, a chance to chat, bring your knitting or whatever is your interest to share with others.  Suitable for all, including those with dementia and their partners or carers. Starts on Monday 16th January 2017 at Toton Methodist Church 12 noon-3pm and then all the sessions will be on the second Monday of the month. Contact Julia for more details.


Bereavement Care

Death can be a devastating, confusing and an overwhelming experience, when trying to adjust to life without a loved one.  We have people who are able, available and willing to provide as much help, comfort and support as they can, to those who are bereaved.

Support is available to anyone living in Toton. The funeral need not have been taken by our Ministers at Toton Churches. The death may have happened recently or in the past, and occurred in or out of the Toton area.

We hold an Annual Service of Bereavement, which is open to all, at the end of October or the beginning of November at St Peter’s Church.
