COMMUNITY-MINISTRY PROGRAMME
How we can help - If you should encounter anyone requiring assistance whilst in the Cathedral precincts please refer that request to the Dean or to a member of clergy or to a warden. We have a well-developed programme in place whereby we can offer a range of services from hot showers, hot meals, foodbank support, emergency food parcels, clothing, nappies for babies and children, milk powder and assistance with budgeting and WINZ. In line with the other social service agencies of the city, under no circumstances is money to be handed out to any person.

PASTORAL CARE AT ST PETER’S CATHEDRAL
The Cathedral, under the direction of the Dean, Peter Rickman, leads a team of trained clergy and lay people to assist in the ministry of caring for those in any kind of need.
The team is available for hospital and home visits, counselling support, house blessings and at times simply to be a listening ear or a shoulder to lean on. Our pastoral-care ministry is open to you and your loved ones, it is free of charge, and all are welcome to have access to it. It operates with the highest standards of care and confidentiality. Please speak to Dean Peter via contact details on the back page of this pew sheet.
